My name is Benoit Renault (aka. Littler00t or xia0ben) and, among many other things, I am a fifth year computer science student at the INSA Lyon.
I love free and open-source software, and hardware too ! That's why I was the president of my school's association of mechatronics last year and am now vice-president to ensure a smooth transition. There, I strive to spread my passion for FOSS and robotics by any means necessary : install-parties, repair-cafés, presentations... Did you see the gorgeous post-it Nyancat on our windows ?
Naturally, I don't just talk about these subjects : I practice them too ! As I love inventive UIs, you will see in the projects below that I concentrate my efforts on bringing beautiful and intuitive user experiences to life, be it on a computer, or with only a few LEDs and a microcontroller !
Though I love science, it doesn't prevent me to study many forms of art. Be it music (I play the flute and piano), 2D&3D design (I recently gave the Lyon Blender User Group a new start), or dance (I have been part of the INSA's "Dance-Studies" section for more than three years now), I am always open to new ways of communicating with others.
Well, enough talk, let's get to some facts : please be my guest and have a look at the following sections.
|- English (bilingual) - Chinese (fluent) - German (fluent) - Spanish and japanese (notions)|
|- Gnu/Linux : Long time user of Archlinux, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, and derivatives - Windows : 98 to 10, but I'd rather not use these anymore :D|
|- 2D drawing : Gimp, Inkscape, Hexels, MyPaint, Alchemy - 3D modelling : Blender, OnShape, SolidEdge ST3, Autodesk Inventor|
As I became the INSA's association of mechatronics president, I entirely redesigned its visual identity. My team and I did not stop here : we entirely reinstalled our dedicated web server and deployed a great array of web services for all members to enjoy !Link
My first intelligent clothing ! A shiny LED matrix controlled by phone through bluetooth commands. First step toward what I call the 萤 (Yíng -> Firefly) project : a full-body dance suit I am currently working on.
