Peter Kaptein is a developer and designer of software. He developed and designed Intranet-solutions and web based Content Management Systems from 1998 to 2002.
In 2002 he moved to using and programming Adobe Flash and is currently building RAD frameworks for web/real-world interfacing, “web of things” and RoomWare based applications.
Kaptein lives in Florence, Italy and Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where he focuses on developing new Open Sourced RAD Frameworks for RoomWare and RoomWare related hardware / software solutions, including RFID, bluetooth, QR-codes, GSM and WiFi to identify users and objects and using webcams, AR toolkits, sound, movement, mobile phones and touch for user interactions with applications and (online) data.
With Alexander Zeh he created the basis of a new foundation for RoomWare applications. In June 2009 this new basis was presented by Kaptein at Reboot11 and moved further forward in the months after, leading to QR-code based solutions for events and new RoomWare related uses for bluetooth and mobile phones.
His goal for 2010 is to move RoomWare into a new field where RoomWare applications and application clusters are easy to build, easy to use, easy to distribute and easy to share.
The new foundation for RoomWare applications will be publicly released in early 2010 and will include interactions with mobile phones, the use of RFID and QR-codes and bluetooth.
