Eversafe is an innovative safety concept for workers in the oil, gas and chemical industry that combines the protection of a safety helmet with the life-saving features of an escape hood and offers instant protection in case of a gas alarm.
With regular escape hoods, workers need to hold their breath immediately and locate an escape hood before being able to evacuate the location. They not only have a much longer donning time than Eversafe but also require the user to take off his or her helmet and glasses, leaving them vulnerable and with impaired vision. Additional cheek windows further improve the peripheral vision and the clear mouth piece helps with communication during an emergency situation.
To deploy the mask, the user simply needs to pull the two blue handles on and the escape hood is released from its protective covers and will position itself correctly over mouth and nose before sealing around the neck. This also activates the filter element which sits well protected on the inside of the helmet.
Eversafe gives the user peace of mind, knowing that they will always be protected and not having to worry where the nearest escape hood is located.
But most of all, the minimized donning time and the knowledge to always be protected gives the users peace of mind and lets them focus on their job.

Food Radiation Scanner is a kitchen appliance that helps people determine if their groceries are safe to consume. The target audience are Japanese households affected by the Fukushima incident living in areas where elevated radiation levels can be observed in fresh food at local markets. The Food Radiation Scanner improves on handheld Geiger counters in that it offers more accurate and understandable readings in a shorter amount of time. This way we hope to make customers feel safe about buying locally grown food again.
I don't know when my love for motorcycles started. Perhaps when I was a boy and my dad took me on a little ride on his red BMW. I just always knew that one day I would need to own a motorcycle.
When I turned 16 I got little 125cc Suzuki chopper which I loved and hated at the same time. It was way too low for me to sit on and even though it was limited to 80km/h, I learned to squeeze out all its puny 10 hp. Yet, it was the first time I experienced the freedom that comes with riding a motorcycle.
My motorcycle careers might have gotten put on hold when I turned 18 and bought a car but it never died. Countless times I imagined what how nice it would be to have a real bike.
In the summer of 2011, while climbing Mont Ventoux on a bicycle trip from Munich to Lisbon, we got overtake by a group of old guys on choppers. And even though I'm not into choppers, it was in this very moment when these guys overtook us so effortlessly on that mountain road under the provençal sun, that I decided that I will buy a motorcycle when back home. Because at which time in your life will you ever buy a motorcycle if not with 25.
Back in Munich I cleared the attic of everything I could sell on eBay and bought an '83 Honda CB 750 KZ from a local buyer with the intent on turning it into a cafe racer. The bike had a terrible spray can paint job but was in great technical condition. Yet, it was scary to ride with it's 35mm forks and spaghetti-like swing arm.
As you can see, things got slightly out of hand and I ended up swapping most of the bike except for the frame, engine and carburetors.
The bike is now completely transformed, lost approximately 40 kg and handles very nicely.
Ideas for future modifications include a more compact headlight, new rear fender and updated, more reliable cable loom.

°MEQU is a medical start-up from Copenhagen that is developing the world's most compact, powerful and easy to use portable infusion fluid warmer to fight secondary hypothermia in trauma patients.
During my time at °MEQU, I was in charge of product design but also deeply involved in the general decision making at °MEQU including market strategy, manufacturer research, clinical approval, prototype manufacturing, communications, meetings with external partners and much more.
The learning curve during this project was incredibly steep and far beyond what I could have imagined before my start.
The °M warmer will soon be be launched and then can also be presented in greater detail here in my online portfolio.
