Wesley's Official Bio

Photo of Woo-Duk ChungMy name is Wesley Woo-Duk Hwang-Chung (officially Woo-Duk Chung / ์ •์šฐ๋•) - an inventor, researcher, and an amateur astronomer in Korea. I am best known for developing a wearable computer, and my smartphone app about the real-time power grid information was the first of its kind in the country. My current interests include posting web toons, studying the electric vehicles, and photographing celestial objects.

I was interested in computers since the 2nd grade, and programming was a childhood hobby. This led to creating a one-man software company called WDSoft.com during high school years that sold utility programs such as MultiWin, a multi-booting solution for Windows. While attending university, I was focused in making portable high-performance computers that could be used anywhere. The result of this was the wearable computing project, which has been showcased thoroughly since 2001.

I then tried my hands at making a tablet PC before shifting my interests elsewhere, such as PDA phones, UMPCs, Macs, and iPhones. That's how I got around to making that power grid information app. Nowadays I'm having fun monitoring my electric vehicle and taking photos of the sky with a superzoom camera.
