B M's Problem Solving Experience:
I was managing a small R&D team building interactive products for the entertainment industry. We were faced with a sudden 3-months deadline to come up with a low-latency, multi (30-60)-player shooting system for a new line of theme park attractions. We invented the original (patent pending) software+hardware combination, built and tested a prototype, and installed the first system, which is still operational to this day.
See list of inventions below, list of patents, and list of publications on web site. I was either working alone, working in a team, or managing the team. In all cases, I was deeply involved in the specifics of the invention, its prototype implementation, and often its commercial implementation.
