I am a Computer Engineer and my specialty is automation and robotics. My passion for hardware started at the age of 14 when I gutted my first computer: a 386 DX 40 with 4MB of RAM and 210MB of hard disk. I continue to give free rein to my passion in the technical articles that I write in Geeknetic. I dedicate most of my free time to video games, contemporary and retro, on the more than 20 consoles I have, in addition to the PC.
