MUVIMAN is a simple PhotoMint deviation. MUVIMAN extends the idea of real-time image sharing to real-time video sharing. Based on picoFlamingo this system allows to watch different real-time video streams and zoom into any of them.
MUVIMAN is aimed to support security guards on museums or offices allowing them to check in advance nearby video sources to increase their situation awareness.
We prepared a very simple concept demonstration and put it on a video.
Yesterday we announced our new project: PhotoMint. We think this is a nice project specially suited for our OMAP ZoomII and a interesting way to get us into the OMAP DSP world that we have not tried yet.
One of the most interesting features in the new picoFlamingo ("The Cracking Egg") is the possibility to dynamically update slides. In order to illustrate this feature we had written this clock demonstration. It looks like this:
As you can imagine the digital clock in the middle of the screen will update every sec. The best thing is that this demo is almost trivial using the new
Our first try to put everything in a case. Still needs lot of work but it's a beginning. For a final version we will need to unsolder some connectors and build a small power supply to be able to use just one power source for everything
And this is how it will look like with the picoDLP on top, before adding all the pico cabling. We also build a simpler case for our old B6.
Check this video showing the new main features included in the next picoFlamingo version, "The Cracking Egg". What you see on that video is a work in progress version and there is a lot of room for improvement.
Keep reading for the details...
We announced this some time ago, and actually, the first draft was ready at some time in April, however it has been difficult to get time for reviewing it. It is far from being complete, and will need a couple of updates, but it is an start.
Let's first introduce CP.
CP stands for Cool Project... and what's that?. Well, we are having lots of ideas and not too much time so we are putting them here and, maybe, somebody else will implement them sooner than us, or maybe they have already been implemented and we are not aware of that. In the next weeks we will be telling you about these CPs and hopefully some of you will bring them to live or will warn us about something already done.
Let's go for this Magic Frame CP!
This is our next step towards a fully portable picoFlamingo: Speech Recognition. This new feature makes the remote control device optional so, only the picoFlamingo box (will come at some point) is all you
need to make a presentation at any time in any place.
For speech recognition we are using Julius. A very nice tool that seems quite stable and powerful. Check out this video demonstration.
Finally we've some time to start working with the OMAP Zoom 2 and you can check the results in this video.
