Networking and Collaboration among Intel® Software Innovators

Innovators are creative types by default and being a part of this community creates a natural pool of peers to network and collaborate with on projects. This post provides some great personal examples of working with people who know their stuff and are willing to take risks to bring it to the next level.

Featured Innovators

Easily Make Mixed-Reality VR Videos

Underminer Studios has created a step-by-step guide to use their Mixed Reality Configurator Tool. Learn how to calibrate your experience to have the cleanest and most accurate configuration possible to make mixed-reality green-screen videos.

Combat VR Sickness with User Experience Design

Virtual reality sickness is one of the biggest challenges for VR game developers to overcome. Well Told Entertainment explains how trial and error led them to realize the importance of designing the user experience to combat this common issue.

Mycroft*: The Open Source Alternative to Siri* or Alexa*

Mycroft* is a software platform designed to bring vocal computing to everyone. This friendly looking personal assistant is designed to allow customers to personalize it as needed. Built on Python* technology, an open-source language, even novices can build a skill for Mycroft.

Catching Up With Justin Lassen at GDC

Justin Lassen spoke at the Intel® Juice Bar and also presented Shapesong at this year's Game Developers Conference (GDC). He explains that the audio for virtual reality experiences, especially the consideration of the spatial design, is vital to creating a truly immersive VR experience.

Virtual Reality Dinosaurs

Pedro Kayatt’s dream has become a reality—to use education, science, and technology to immerse people in a virtual reality (VR) environment so they can experience what Brazil was like during the time of the dinosaurs. His Dinos do Brasil project just became a permanent exhibit at the Catavento Cultural Museum.

Innovation Updates


Control Elaborate LED Light Setups with Stellar

Stellar is a software platform for controlling hundreds of thousands of LED lights. Eskil Steenburg has developed Stellar to let you design and map complex lighting setups in full 3D with a high precision of control.

Hrydyalysis: A Hybrid Wearable to Track More than Just Heart Rate

Unlike costly fitness devices that offer only heart rate tracking, Hrydyalysis offers an overall pathological analysis of heart activity similar to an ECG. Rupam Das has designed a device to quickly capture, analyze, and then provide a comprehensive report to the user.

Updating Camera Traps for Wildlife Research

The use of camera traps is common in wildlife research, but has drawbacks as the image metadata is often inaccessible. Andy Rosales Elias explores how to use the K-Nearest Neighbor algorithm to detect time, date, and temperature values—increasing the relevant data available to wildlife researchers.

MQTT Essentials - A Book about the MQTT Protocol for Internet of Things

Gaston Hillar recently published a step-by-step guide to help you gain a deep understanding of the lightweight MQTT protocol. Get the best practices and see examples on different kinds of IoT applications.

Speech Assistance Using Artificial Neural Network

This project from student ambassador, Ramy Mounir, seeks to help people with speech impediments by designing a more accurate speech-to-text application using a deep bi-directional recurrent neural network to achieve state-of-the-art performance.

Go Wrapper for the Deep Learning Inference Engine

Daniel Whitenack’s project will result in a deep learning inference engine for Go, powered by Intel’s C++ inference engine, which is part of the Deep Learning SDK. The project wil start with a focus on image classification and expanding the functionality over time.

Digital Art: Procedurally Generated Stained Glass

Lilli Szafranski has created digital stained glass, a 12-sided, 4.5 feet diameter art installation using more than 2,200 LEDs. It is controlled by procedurally generated, fully random code.

Tellybot: A Crowd Presence Robot

Jillian Ogle has developed a robot that lets the audience operate the controls. The robot streams live on Twitch and the audience commands the robot to move forward, backward, left, and right. You can collaborate with others on the stream or even compete for control.

Voice Controlled Personal Assistant

This IoT based application, built with an Intel® Edison board, can read your emails to you, reply back to them, monitor your environment, set your alarms, notify you, and look things up online—all with just voice commands.

Model Car Robotics Powered by Intel® Curie™ Technology

With the prospect of self-driving cars in our near future, CodeWheels is a great first step for learning how to program a robotic car to drive and navigate a track. You might have the best code to make your car cross the finish line first, but can it handle a real-life scenario like losing one of its wheels? Learn more about this racing challenge and soon-to-be game designed by Intel® Software Innovator Maksim Masalski.
