Tracy McSheery is an inventor specializing in combining high technology in multiple areas to create solutions that are usually retroactively obvious. Many times the solution has even been tried before but failed and simply needed some component technology to succeed. In other cases, years or decades are needed to provide solutions to enable a technology which then seems obvious.

Things I like to say[edit]

People underestimate how much hard work and planning go into 'being lucky'.

My working prototype can never compete with your wishful thinking.

Being a little bit crazy can be a good thing, but remember, there is such thing as too much of a good thing.

Unfortunately, Good problem solvers are magnets for people with problems.

At best you can plan for success, but you can damn straight guarantee failure.

Rome wasn't built in a day, but it was burned down in one.

Whenever you think you've made it sailor proof, we'll just go find a dumber sailor.

My Day Job[edit]

I work for a company doing Computer Vision, Augmented Reality, Optical Motion Capture so let me know if you see any annoying wars on the optical tracking pages.

[[ |frame| PhaseSpace System with 3,600 x 3,600 resolution at 480 hertz providing real time submillimeter positions.]] PhaseSpace is the name of a company that does optical motion tracking in one dimension at a time for each of three or more detectors, and then combines three or more planes into a three dimensional point. While this is rather non-intuitive for humans, it is very efficient for detectors and processors, making the system very fast and scalable as a N * D problem where N is the number of detectors and D is the resolution, whereas vision based approaches scale as N * D * D making them thousands of times more computationally complex even for lower resolution systems.
