I'm a software developer with a long history in creating innovative UIs. I'm nearly ready to launch something I've been building for the past couple years. It is music oriented and heavy on the graphics. Contact me if you want to know more, feel free to email direct.
My degree is in industrial design, so I'm more a creative person than a coder really. In 1993, I wrote a "magic eye" program (in C++) and did a successful series of posters that were sold in shopping malls all over the world. Before that I made a 3d model of a human that was used by Boeing and McDonnell Douglas for designing (among other things) the space station. I have patents on 3d design user interfaces (in 1996 and 1998), and one of them is for Accudraw, which people still use and love. Had a hit with Aardvark in 2005, it was eventually bought by Google. So yeah I've been doing this stuff for a while. :)
I am a single dad with a 4 year old daughter, and she is my muse and an avid beta tester of the product I am developing.
I'm finally pushing my product out there after --- way too long working on it! I got to demo it at the IndieHacker meetup in San Francisco a week ago (thanks for working me in at the last minute, Chase!), and it seemed to be a pretty big hit.
It's piano karaoke, and it uses the original music videos on youtube, and layers graphics and sound on top, synchronized. Great for kids (but also adults). My 4 year old absolutely loves playing along to her favorite music videos.
Please check it out, and I'd appreciate if you can spread it around. Trying to get it noticed on Hacker News (check in the "show" page), would love to get some love there!
