A little bit more voice commanding with picoFlamingo, this time using CMU PocketSphinx and featuring multi-language support, that is, dynamically switching between different language at run-time. This feature makes picoFlamingo the first presentation solution for international organisations as UN or EU... just kidding :). A video demonstration after the break
picoFlamingo "The Cracking Egg" source code is available for download!. A new version of the user manual is also available as well as our current Android Remote Control work in progress. Now you can try it on your preferred device. For the time being we have seen it running OK on Beagle, OMAP ZoomII and OMAP4 Blaze!

Yes, thanks to NetKitty and the S2 Bluetooth Terminal, I can send commands to picoFlamingo directly from my G1 phone. In principle the BT Chat example available from the Android SDK should also work, but, at this point, I'm stuck with Android 1.5 on my G1 and the RFComm Bluetooth sockets are not available on that version.
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.
