Gesture Control and the Next Wave of 3D Cameras

Within the last five years, the field of Natural User Interfaces (NUIs) has been revolutionized by the influx of new devices onto the market. These devices allow users to interact directly with a user interface using gestures or speech, for example. This article looks at the extent to which this type of control is both intuitive and comfortable.

Developing / Debugging Android apps on the Dell Venue 8-7000

I just got my hands on a the Venue 8-7000 and I was a little surprised to discover there weren't any development drivers available for Windows 8.x.

HaxLogs.txt in root directory


I couldn't find a way to install the HAXM Intel Emulator Accelerator on Windows 7 (86x64) with the log files properly contained in a user directory. For example, there is a HaxLogs.txt file in the root directory!

Since it's quite messy, could you please let me know how to fix this?

Latest version I tried was 5.2.
