Argzero Technologies

is creating Tools for Scientists, Game Designers, and Engineers

Welcome to my Patreon!

In the name of the recent boom in indie game developers in the world, I've decided to start producing tools en masse in addition to my various personal projects (with a focus in assistive and multidisciplinary technology). I am open to suggestions on projects as well as where you guys think I should be focusing my energy.
For my current projects, please refer to my GitHub.

I highly recommend you visit my website.

I know not all of you can afford to be supporters, but, I do appreciate the little things I hear from people sometimes. Even a simple thank you makes my day sometimes, so don't be shy! I love to hear from other developers and other people who work in similar fields to me. Feel free to ask any questions as well; I will answer them to the best of my abilities. Fair notice: if you are a $5+ supporter, I may also send you free access to some of my paid projects as I complete them, including ones not shown here. This reward is NOT retroactive so join now!

The types of projects I work on as Argzero are generally divided into the following kinds:

1. Serious Games for Change

I make games which aim at tackling complex problems like those in the medical education and rehabilitation technologies. Some examples of projects I have created include an educational game for maternal physiology for medical students and a game to help amputees practice using their myoelectric prosthetic interface for the DEKA LUKE prosthetic transradial prosthetic arm.

2. Game Developer, Engineering, and Scientist Tools

I like to create tools to make it easier for multiple disciplines to collaborate. To that end, I am working on a number of projects including Project SAGES and Project STATIC. In turn, I like to receive feedback on my projects to make them better for everyone. Almost all of these tools are currently 100% open source and I am willing to create multiple versions to varying purposes within some degree of reason. Just let me know what you need! Check out my licensing information on my GitHub repositories for details regarding my open source licenses (more details available soon regarding my website). When these tools are completed their source code will be made private and the tools will be sold. Please note: this does not mean you are permitted to steal my software; rather, I am committed to openly sharing my projects with the world so that people can learn from the work I am doing while I am working on them. To this end, I will leave some parts of the privatized code available for free on my GitHub for Argzero Technologies even upon project completion.

3. Programs for Players

If there's some piece of software you think would be awesome to have when playing any game you enjoy, please feel free to let me know. I will only do work within some degree of reason, so please do not ask me to hack your favorite game and make it so you have infinite resources because I will not create anything that helps you to break any games for other players, nor will I willingly break any laws related to such things. Argzero Technologies LLC is strongly committed to ethical, effective, and safe business practices.

4. Other Software / Devices 

I will work on any technologies which I think will help improve quality of work, quality of life, or continuum of care for anyone who stands to benefit from my particular skillset.
Assistive Technology - Access is making things usable to all no matter their abilities.
Utility Technologies - Technologies that make certain things easier to do, like tracking a rocket.

Final Comments:

I ask your support in determining where my time is best spent, so please let me know what sorts of projects you'd like to see!

Email me at the AZ Tech contact email ([email protected]) to contact me about new projects, to talk to me and get to know what I do, or just ask a question. I'm happy to respond to as many emails as I am able. If you are a supporter, you can do so anytime via my Discord server!


Current Projects:

Argzero Project STATIC Prosthetics & Project SAGES

Refer to Argzero's Github for more information.

Argzero Unity Procedural Audio Manager (A.U.P.A.M.) - Unity / C#

This will allow you to create your very own procedural audio in Unity. This system is aimed at being industry quality. Please contact me if you wish for me to add specific features to the system.

Serializeable Collections for Unity - Unity / C#

The name of this one is rather self explanatory. The goal for this project is to create a dictionary object which successfully serializes in the inspector and allows significant flexibility for keys and values. Existing technologies of this sort lack support for nested collections. The goal of this project is to solve what even Unity couldn't solve. Fully functional generic collections.

M.R.S. Horizon - Qt / C++ & python / OpenGL

A portable electronic tracking system for fast-moving projectiles over reasonably long distances. This device will resemble a dragon ball tracker and will be effective for monitoring altitude and GPS location of a fast moving projectile such as a rocket (for all you rocketeering fans out there!).

Currently we are not a full-time studio. By supporting us on Patreon, you give us the opportunity to take less commercial jobs and focus more on what you need and want and to not have to spend my extra time making money rather than making cool useful things to help the world. Although Youtube pays a little and this job only pays decently when we have contracts with other organizations, it is not even close to sustaining ourselves. So put simply, you make life for us so we can do better and more work for you rather than commissioned work for specific agencies, companies, or facilities.

To Contact me send me emails to [email protected], and for more on my projects, check out argzero.org. I love hearing from my fans and especially love hearing from interested collaborators. If you see anything on my GitHub or elsewhere you think you can make use of, email me as soon as possible. Doubly so if you intend to create published research (I will go out of my way to help you).

What we will do with your money:
- Purchase more tools, equipment, software, and parts for making our hardware and software projects.
- Hire additional help to work on more projects.
- We can invest more time and money in our Youtube videos which we will make for every project. Youtube doesn’t like long videos, but we love them, and so do people technical and non-technical alike. Rest assured, regardless, we will put our best effort into making them but with a bit more money, that best will be a lot better.
- We can take some time off of other contracts to work more projects you request.
Thank you so much for all your support! We appreciate it more than you can imagine and it really helps us out! Don't be afraid to give us a shout out, we love to hear from fans and to inspire others to do the kind of work we support.
