Crash sled
Whomm - onboard the crastest sled against the wall!

Experiment by do it yourself, it's me, indeed: on a crash test sled against a rigid barrier simulating a frontal crash at about 50 km/h (approx. 31 mph).


Ensured, I'm not a bot. This site is truly hand made.

high-speed cameras:




Walter Preiß

(Nice Price; »ß« = »ss« or rarely »sz«)

info preiss-walter.

Engineer: trouble shooter not trouble administrator. Making gold out of sh*t.

End of the project, when with successfully finishing the question arises, what one has done the whole time, this can really indicate that one has done an excellent job.
Or: »Why should I worry about whether the bridge holds if I know it will never be built?«.

Fraunhofer Gesellschaft FhG IIS / Intego: Pyritte-RS

Reflection supported pyrometric interferometry - optical in situ measurement system for film thickness and temperature determination in semiconductor processing (built by Mikromak and Intego).

CMOS wafer and sensor
CAM 2000 megapixel sensor

High-speed camera systems Weinberger and FhG IIS.

Big thermal battery with heat tinting
Abused 6 kg battery

Don't trust batteries you haven't developed on your own. (Sometimes not even those. ;-) Overheating due to abuse; EaglePicher.

PTS / IVT: Vipro 7 LS

Ex Grundig-PTS, now IVT: AOI - Automated optical soldering inspection system for large-scale (serial) manufacture.


My hobbies

Every now and then there are good ice conditions during wintertime. Then I draw my circles skating on the Birkensee (east of Nuremberg, Germany). For pair skating with Katarina Witt it won't do by far, but what counts is the Olympic spirit: join in is everything.
(By the way: the Birch Tree Lake is also famous for its nudism beach - in summer naturally! - But then I am usually on tour with my bike.)


Litter box pyramid with plexiglass
The other wastepaper bin

And if the weather is still too lousy, I'll sit in front of this box.



Well, I intend to rebuild my model railroad in real grand style just sometime.



Well, long ago I wanted to become an animal scientist, emphasis behavioral science (animals in human environment).



What else meets my interest? - Well, you will find it there.



Design lights
Light workshop

I am an eye guided person. Light has a certain fascination for me since ever, therefore now and then I moreover create lamps, lights, spots, and so on.


Like here made of wood and plexiglass wastes of a litter box constructed in a pyramid stump shaped style. Well, a lot of triangular spare pieces remain, and then sometime during cleaning up one has the striking idea...

Or out of an empty shampoo bottle just looking too good to throw away. The shade made of plexiglass, varnished on both sides with fluorescent paint, shows interesting effects together with the black light. And especially after switching off!



One of my favorite recreational activities - not for sports, but just for fun in the nature. That's providing much space for thinking - over me, the world and the rest of the universe...
(Because if the finest thing of cycling is taking a shower after it, one has done something wrong. Guys, who must be the fastest all the time shouldn't go to the fitness studio, but just to the psychiatrist - the trick cyclist.)

It has something of master of time and space, after one has climbed up a ridge and discovers a castle, a peak or another marked point and then make a more or less cross-country approach: »my name is written on it!«.

My way


Post BMW
Post BMW (by Frank P.)

Engaged in making me popular once more:
Together with Peter converting Jock's (German Mail) yellow BMW 320 into a stagecoach. Jock surprisingly appreciated the somehow professional design and let the stickers where they were often been asked whether he is bringing express mail.

Walk of life

Better to lose a good friend than to give away a point.

(H. Sienkiewicz in Quo Vadis, or is it from Oscar Wilde or even from the Old Romans?)


Head CT
Bio image sensor with central processing unit

Well, don't miss to risk a glance at my black soul, press ...

Deep insight (by Dr. dent. D. D.)

And here just a look in my deepest interior:
I still have one milk tooth, not only poison fangs.
The wisdom teeth tilt by 90° are all out already.

And on the right the in between.
What makes me work.

Ey, this one! - This section was created only, because right at the beginning there had been shown - just as a joke - a photo of Anny D under Any (key) and I was so often asked, who this dream woman is.
Well, it's a damn long time ago, but she knows of her luck. (At least she has been able to work it out. ;-)
