Good day! I am an industrial designer, engineer, comic artist, and beer lover; like to approach creation from variety of my interests and fan-based thoughts in different forms. My Designed toy product "Solar 8 in 1" (aka Solarbots: 8-in-1 Solar Robot Kit) and "Metal Danger Series: Great White Shark" had been released in 2020.  For Now, I am a multiple function designer at Uni-Automata Studio. With my mass production and manufacturing experiences before,  I could help out with your product development and improve your design ideas!  Feel free to get in touch with me via e-mail  kao8855@gmail.com.
