Authors

Cornel Amariei

Cornel Amariei is a Romanian inventor and entrepreneur in the fields of Robotics and 3D printing. He has been working with the Arduino platform since its early days in 2007. His past experience involves large cargo gamma ray scanning robotics, ATM security systems, and blind assisting devices. In his spare time, he is a performing musician playing multiple instruments—predominately the guitar. He is also a swimmer, water polo player, and photographer.

Over the years, he has built hundreds of Arduino projects, ranging from flying Quadcopters to levitating magnets and underwater robots. Currently, he splits his time between doing his undergraduate studies in electric engineering and computer science at Jacobs University in Bremen, Germany, and his start-ups and research and development job.
