Radio & TV


Television appearances:

“Next to writing, giving workshops and lecturing I really enjoy being in front of a camera.  I’m passionately fascinated by science and technology and television allows me to discover the fascinating wonders of the modern world. In front of the camera I get to test, touch, view, discover, hear and talk about my passions. Something I could not do otherwise. It’s a privilege to share my boy-like bewilderment but also the trials & tribulations of our modern day technological lives with others.”

Thank you all.

Bright Uitpakparty

The Bright Uitpakparty (Unboxing party) is a weekly internet-TV video review column tackling the latest technological innovations. The Bright Uitpakparty is raw, in your face, unscripted, out on the street or straight out of the livingroom with a touch of cynical humor. What you see is what you get and that includes me. Though I’m not the only host I’m also known as Mr. uitpakparty (Mr. Unboxing-party ). Over the years I made more than 150 Uitpakparties.

Watch the Uitpakparties

TROS Radar

TROS Radar is a  consumer television program that’s been around for 15 years. The program acts as watchdog protecting the rights of consumers. In may 2009 I was asked as an expert to debunk the digital camera megapixel myth. More megapixels doesn’t mean sharper or better photo’s but that’s what manufacturers of digital camera’s wanted us to believe.
