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.
We proudly present the next generation interface for picoFlamingo (and other stuff that is coming, we'll talk about it soon); a homemade data glove to interact with 3D objects in your presentations using your fingers. This is how the prototype looks like.
Busy days again, and not too much time to update the blog.
First of all we will like to say that we really enjoyed the Community Talks last Thursday, but we missed some of them, so we are looking forward to get the recordings!
Second, we would like to thank to all the people that provide us with feedback in the questions round for our talk. We really appreciate that and that is the reason we wait so long to write this entry... we were thinking about all these comments.
Here are the main topics and what we would do.
For that we prepared a ppt presentation, but, to let you know what is going on with the project, we made a version of that presentation using our PRISCILA tool (the picoFlamingo's big sister). Here it is:
We have just found this nice link (note the Google translation box in the right column)
As promised some time ago, here is the first picoFlamingo release (codename "The Pink Egg"). All the files you need to run "The Pink Egg" in your BeagleBoard can be downloaded from here:
After a short vacation we are back and in our mailbox we've got a nice mail telling us that picoFlamingo is the first Monthly Winner for the BeagleBoard Sponsored Projects Program.
After an incubation period, the "Pink Egg" has arrived. It looks like something is growing inside :).
