A realtime graphics demo created together with the marvellous Philipp Stadler. Have a look at our code. Buzzwords: HDRR, bloom, caustics, flocking simulation.





The Spritzerbot is a commisioned piece for monochrom. It is a cocktail robot which serves Kaiserspritzer, a mixed drink of wine, soda water and elderberry syrup. Its open and non-obfuscating design encourages to explore the working machanisms of the machine.
The insignia was meticulously designed by Luis Utrillas.

It was created for the food/cocktail robot festivals Hedonistika (Tel Aviv) and Roboexotica (Vienna).



POLYCRUSHER is a local multiplayer game for up to 4 Players.

A heatmap showing where the most enemys get killed in one specific level. The unusual concentration of kill events (the red spots) tell us that some players may exploit a map design error, allowing them to stay in on position and concentrating their fire on one spot.


The Polyscrusher team getting feedback from Riot Games’ champion designer Bradford “CertainlyT” Wenban.

My part was character design, modelling, rigging and animation of most of the characters and some enemies. Furthermore I developed a tools for data aggregation and visualization, which we used for analysing player behaviour and the online highscore. I also was responsible for the conceptualization and editing the game trailers.

POLYCRUSHER is already released on Steam!

Fluid Communication


Digital communication, in its electronic form, is invisible to the eye. We created a machine that visualises the flow of binary data, by using oil and water as binary states instead of voltage levels.

The software which serves as data source is a simple chat program. If the user enters text and sends it, the machine sends the binary representation of that text by alternately pumping clear oil and colored water through the tube. The two differents fluids represent the binary data: Oil for 0, Water for 1. The resulting black and white pattern is the decoded data sent from the terminal.

The machine communicates with itself, decoding the pattern it has generated. Through the turbulences in the tube the data gets distorted. This distorted data reminds us of the difficulties that one has to overcome to build reliable digital devices.

The Fngism is the official band synthesizer of the experimental performance group FNG. The circuit is based on various 4093 NAND circuit designs on the internet. It has a switch for unpredictable sound mayhem. The wooden casing was made by Bastian Enzenhofer.


The PCB layout was etched in a DIY manner with the direct toner method.

3D Vase

The vase was inspired by the Ovomorph Egg in the movie Alien (Ridley Scott, 1979) designed by H. R. Giger.
