Hi! My name is Eyal aloni, 39 years old, mechanical eng. married+2. I’m Israeli, we live in a village in the northern-central part of Israel.
Basically – i was a Lego kid, Later on i got into bicycles and as i grew up – motorcycles, beetle-buggies, and old cars. I gave up Lego for welding around my 20’ies and kept building stuff all the time – furniture, or house renovations but mainly it was automotive projects.
Another side of my story is my army service that gave me a second perspective to machines – from the user point of view. travelling in New Zealand – i was inspired by John Britten work – the V1000 motorcycle – which he built on his own and that was totally different than anything else.
When I came back, I started learning engineering at the Technion institution in Haifa, specializing in energy field. The need for something like the TLTboard arose when i drove a car from and to the university, and had to park it and walk for 15 precious morning minuets.
I started to work at that time for two of the largest weapon companies in Israel – Rafael and Israeli Aerospace Industry There, i witnessed the huge waste in work at big companies: time waste goes exponentially large due to documentation and procedures. I knew i was meant to be faster
I worked there for 4-5 years to have sufficient funds for the project and I’m working on this project solo over the past 5 years, but every day i know it is well worth it, the TLT board is a pure fun.
