Art without engineering is dreaming;
Engineering without art is calculating.

Steven Roberts
A Pioneer of Technomadics

Steve Roberts is a high-tech creative genius and problem solver. From 1983 to 1991, he pedaled 17,000 miles around the country on a computerized and networked recumbent bicycle that allowed him to remain connected and productive while wandering freely. During 1997, he set aside the bicycle to work on a pair of networked ultra-light trimaran boats. In his presentations, Mr. Roberts describes these creations and discusses the blending of art and engineering, the management of an independent project through creative symbiosis with industry, Internet collaboration, and the human factors involved in a complex portable system.
