About Hajo Nils Krabbenhöft

Yep, that’s a fake picture of me :p I didn’t actually travel to a space station ;) But this picture has been generated using the Backdrop3D technology that I developed. Note that it looks as if I’m casting a shadow on the floor, even though I’m not really there.

Here’s a real photo of me in Singapore:

What do you actually do?

I invent cool new toys that I’d like to play with :) “Toys” in this context have been:

  • 3d-printed objects
  • physical games
  • web applications
  • computer / mobile / console games
  • music-making equipment & software
  • computer vision software & hardware
  • and high-end technology in general.

Afterwards I either sell the product through one of my companies or I license my ideas to someone else.

Does that work?

If your goal in life is to work a lot in order to become incredibly rich.. then hell no!

Instead, I enjoy the process of building something new :) For as long as I can remember, I have been drawing pictures and inventing funny stories. When I was little, I used to play the violin. I then switched to singing, building electronic devices and writing computer software. I also love to travel :) and I love to learn new skills :)

As a result, I chose to place my personal freedom above financial accomplishments. And yes, I’m very happy with that decision :)

Can I hire you?

I rejected some exceptionally well-paid job offers in the past. So if all you can offer is money, then the answer is no.

However, I am interested in working with brilliant people and teams as a partnership to build something wonderful :)

Here are the rules:

You need to inspire me with a great vision for games or technology that will make the future better, safer or a lot more fun.

I’m not interested in doing all those boring legal things or setting up business deals. I’ve done enough of that already.

I also don’t do any sort of work that requires me to be on-call 24/7. This means I won’t do IT administration.

I love to travel and visit friends. As such, I’m usually working remotely. Send me an email if you need something. Don’t call unless it’s really urgent! I might be in another time zone…

Since I’m working remotely, I won’t be able to show up in-person for meetings. I know you hate wasting time as much as I do, so I expect this won’t be a problem :)

Do you do Consulting?



You may send me an email. I’ll try to answer each non-spam email within 2 weeks.
