Somewhere in the woods, Germany

Welcome to the home of Tob. My areas of interest and expertise include computer graphics in general, real-time global illumination and augmented reality. I am a graphics programmer at Unity Technologies.

This webpage features a portfolio of projects I'm working on (mostly open-source), publications I have been involved in and a casually maintained blog to keep it all together. If you have any questions or comments regarding my publications, source code or other things, feel free to contact me (public key) at:

Alternatively, you can reach me on Twitter:


You can leave a tip if my code or blog was helpful:
