Here you will find my current and past research projects.
Programming with an Internet of Things (IoT) Motivation: I am currently designing and teaching introductory programming classes using IoT as a motivation.
Smart Homes, Home Automation, eHomes: Everythign in my eHome page
AR/VR: Projects around Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard-like, and the Epson Moverio projection technology and related apps.
McMinos, a Computer Game, intially only for Atari ST/TT/Falcon, now also for Android and iOS.
Mobile authentication: Mobile solutions aimed at replacing our current ways of password-based authentication with the interplay of mobile, wearable devices, the Internet of Things, as well as our behaviour.
Inferato: Complex Search, Exploratory Search, Search-Logger, SearchTrails, and more on graph-enhanced search.
Mobile Desktop: Tips and tricks around your notebook and mobile portable Desktop environments in linux.
Be aware, they could be activated at any time again.
F2F Computing: Simple tools for a spontaneous, secure and private data, communications, and computational resource exchange
Bright brains in informatics: Still in Aachen, I set up a course for gifted elementary school students to get involved in the beautiful world of informatics.
PACC, private academic cloud computing.
cloudeco: Predictions of cloudsourcing costs.
inferato/amms: Advanced Message Management System (AMMS) - new ways to cope with your emails and messages.
PS3 Computing: Everything we do on our new ps3 computing engine
Active Learning: Gaming and Simulation (ALGS): In this project, we develop a game to facilitate team building and communications skills for the students of Computer Science at the University of Tartu.
KangurOS: Maybe this will once be the core of new operating systems. Its concepts for data storage and retrieval are very different and should supersede current techniques.
elsim: A little visual elevator simulation, which can be controlled via a network socket. A nice tool, if you want students to develop a elevator control.
Fujaba: Here I am mainly involved as a user and instructor. However, my current engagement is more in the area of Story Driven Modeling (SDM) and its current support libraries.
Kmail maildir format to classic maildir format and vice versa: Nice, if you use kmail a lot, but want to test some local imap based stuff at the same moment.
PhD on Configuring eHomeSystems
Diplomarbeit (comparable to master thesis): Erweiterung von Haskell um portbasierte Kommunikation zur verteilten Programmierung (eng.: Port-Based distributed Haskell)
emailconcentrator: A framework for harvesting emails and making them available in other formats.
