Description Edit | History

Dr. Kai Herbertz was born in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1977. He is a scientist by profession, as well as an indie author and indie game designer. After becoming a Diplom-Ingenieur in electrical and electronics engineering at the RWTH Aachen and earning his PhD in electrical and electronics engineering at Imperial College London, he is currently working as a research scientist for the Fraunhofer Society, which is most famous for inventing the MP3 audio compression algorithm.

His main research interest is in metamaterials (MTM), which are artificial periodic structures that exhibit properties not found in nature. Research in MTM garnered world wide media interest in 2006 when Sir Jon Pendry postulated that MTM could be used to create a Star Trek-esque cloaking device.

In August 2015 he published his medieval fantasy novel called “Age of Torridan” via Kindle Direct Publishing.
In June 2016 he founded the company Herbertz Entertainment UG (haftungsbeschränkt), which released its first game “Das Katastrophenspiel” at the SPIEL16 games fair in Essen in October 2016.
