Meet the uWand team; Theo de Rover, system tester

As a tester, Theo makes sure that the uWand technology works to the exacting high standard demanded by Philips technology. Putting it through its paces on a regular basis ensures that uWand technology will work every time.

His approach is to test the system as an end user, but with the inside knowledge of how the system should behave. As Theo puts it, “Testing is not an exact science, sometimes it’s more like an art.”

Here Theo explains how he goes about testing the uWand technology and how he become a system tester.
