róbert kovács

phd candidate at the hasso plattner institute - human computer interaction lab with prof. patrick baudisch

My aim is to bring engineering domain knowledge closer to wider audience. In my research I’m creating personal fabrication systems that help non-engineers to build structurally sound large‑scale objects. I do this by developing end-to-end workflows, starting form the customized CAD software, through engineering the construction parts, until guiding the assembly process.

Beyond being passionate about personal fabrication I’ve been involved in numerous interdisciplinary research projects in the domains of virtual reality, haptics, interfaces for blind people, and art projects as well.
