There were a lot of standout developers at the recent San Francisco Perceptual Computing Hackathon, one of which was Cyrus Lum, a veteran in the industry with 25 years of experience in game production, development and management roles with both publishing and independent development companies. Cyrus won with the overall Hackathon Grand Prize of $3000 with his “MyPetShadow”; a fun pet game which integrates both voice recognition and hand gestures. Here’s a video of MyPetShadow in motion:
In these days our loved Perceptual SDK receive an update in the SDK incarnation, there's a lot of improvement and new implementation.
The release is marked with the version number 8779, just from the change log we can note the news.
First of all the Java app dev support and Projection in framework porting libraries support was added,
Many of the samples (either C++ and C#) was rewritten or heavily modified.
When you want to learn a new programming language or SDK, the first step is usually is to write a program called "Hello World!" Here, we are talking about how to use the web cam features of the Intel® Perceptual Computing SDK, so we will call our first program "Hello Cam!"
Quando si approcia ad un nuovo linguaggio di sviluppo o ad un nuovo SDK, di solito, il primo programma che si scrive viene chiamato "Hello World!". In questo caso si tratta di un primo esempio di come utilizzare le funzionalità dell'SDK Perceptual relativamente alle feture della WebCam e, quindi, il nome non può che essere "Hello Cam!".
Un pò di architettura
Nella seguente figura è rappresentato il modello dell'architettura su cui si fonda Perceptual SDK.
Hi! I am the director of the University Collaborative Research in Intel Labs. I am starting up a series of blogs featuring the latest highlights of our collaborative research with universities around the world. I am not going to be doing “computer research for dummies,” but I will be writing about the latest exciting research topics in an easy-to-understand form. No jargon? Ok, maybe just a little. But, no matter what your level of tolerance for engineer-speak, I think you will find these topics interesting, informative, and thought provoking.
