About Us


Benjamin Shapiro

Founder, President, CEO


Benjamin's education and experience are in both, Mechanical Engineering and Computer Engineering.  In both fields, he was always a strong proponent of not wasting energy - intellectual energy in computing and kinetic energy in automobiles.

His motto applicable to both of these two fields is "wasting energy is wrong".  Furthermore, when such wasting energy affects the planet's survival, such wasting energy becomes a crime.


Benjamin Shapiro received his education from the High Naval Cadet Engineering Academy (LVVMIU) - mechanical engineering, and Electro-Technical University (LETI) - computer engineering, both in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Benjamin’s experience in the field accounts for approximately 27 years as a computer software programmer, programming consultant, and founder of Thinking Software, Inc. Ben is the author of a number of US and International patents in the fields of computer engineering and mechanical engineering. He is a founder of the Software Understanding Machine® (SUM) and ReWheel technologies, both of which will soon have a life of its own with perpetually increasing, never exhausted potential.

Benjamin is a member of the Advisory Board, Lifeboat Foundation (https://lifeboat.com/ex/bios.benjamin.shapiro)
