Professionally I am a Software Developer. I am mostly engaged in mobile development using C#, Xamarin and MVVMCROSS, but also create WCF services and RESTful API’s to support my mobile applications and other projects. I also develop WPF and .Net Web Applications using typescript, bootstrap and AngularJS.
Personally I am interested in propulsion and energy systems and have been learning some SolidWorks and doing some 3D printing on a small home printer using PLA.
My previous web site was located at nickrobinson.id.au, and while I felt this had a very functional and somewhat professional air about it, it never quite seemed engaging.
While it is true, I am not actually in space (not yet), nickin.space seemed a bit more fun and hopefully brings with it an air of engagement and a challenge of sorts… to actually be in space.
BOOK OF SHADOWS
The Book of Shadows is a mobile application for the iPhone which I developed with my partner Jacqui.
Jacqui had collected a lot of information on Herbs, Crystals and essential Oils as well as a wealth of information on wicca.
I loved the idea of creating something very different from my daily business applications, and here we are.
One of the most notable deviations from my normal app development was creating all of the graphics as 3D models using DAZ3D and rendering them in high resolution. The rendered images were then integrated into my normal workflow using Fireworks and Photoshop. This approach provided the app with a very coherent theme, relevant earthy colors and a great user experience.
AFTER MOON FALL
BOOK | GRAPHIC NOVEL | MOVIE OR TV SERIES
So my ambitions for my first book may be a little grandiose, but the basic format of the series is that it spans 5 books/movies/seasons and these trace the story of a group of young adults brought together through circumstance.
Their instinct for survival drives them to forge alliances, and their tech savvy, changes the playing field and gives them a chance in this hostile new world. But beyond their alliances is their basic need for friendship which forces them to trust each other and share their inner hopes and fears.
Each book/movie/season sees us learning more about our new friends and them about theirs. We also see new challenges and breakthroughs as they build hope for the future, in a time when the chances are dwindling that there will be one.
MATTER / ANTI-MATTER
WHAT IS SPACE|R ABOUT
SPACE|R is about realizing new matter/anti-matter technologies for both space and terrestrial endeavors through research based on the exciting new Interspatial Manifold Theory.
While SPACE|R is a bit of a pipe dream at this stage, I have created SPACE|R to give the idea room to grow and a space for it to take on it’s own life.
