My Experiences at IDF 2015 as a Black Belt Developer: 3-D Printing

Another set of booths and activities that I found engaging were those that concerned 3-D printing. I do not own nor have I used a 3-D printer, though I did sit through a 90 min class at the HacKid Conference with my daughter a couple of years ago. That 3-D printer was a small home hobbyist printer and the lab reeked with several less than healthy chemical smells including acetone. Nevertheless, my daughter asked for one for Christmas (which we did not get her) along with a Raspberry Pi (which we did).

My Experiences at IDF 2015 as a Black Belt Developer: Intel® Realsense™ Booths

This year, I saw both the current marketed Intel® RealSense™ product and the just released short and long range cameras. I’m told it uses coded light technology (pretty neat in itself) that couples a passive visible light camera with an active IR camera/sensor. The visible light camera takes a traditional picture, while the active IR camera determines the distance to the various objects. From what I’m told, the newer short range Intel® RealSense™ camera has a gesture tracking range of between 0.2 m and 0.6 m.

Meshcentral & Commander at IDF2015

A quick note to say that my team has excellent representation & location at IDF this year. If you are at IDF and want to know what we are doing with platform manageability, Intel® AMT or many other technologies our group is working on, please stop by. We are located on the 2th floor on top of the escalators. Not only are the technologies being shown, but often times the people that work on this technology day-to-day are also present making it a fun and interesting experience.

IDF '14 Part 1: My experiences as a new black belt

I attended IDF14 (Intel Developers Forum 2014). I was invited because I achieved something called “Black Belt” status this year, meaning that someone believes that I have a certain modicum of influence within the scale developer community. Personally, achieving this status evokes equal mixtures of pride, self-consciousness and an “ah shucks”.
