The wearable dilemma: forming habits first, then building ecosystems

Mon, 11/11/2013 - 13:27 -- rprice

a trio of wearable-tech experts from across the spectrum of devices discussed the tech and the roadblocks to widespread use from consumers. Currently, there's still a challenge with getting the public to want to wear anything, let alone a smartwatch or activity tracker. Not only does the device need to look amazing, but it also has to provide a function that we can't live without. If you think about a diabetes tracker, that wearable serves a vital purpose for a niche of consumers.

Beaglebone: Video Capture and Image Processing on Embedded Linux using OpenCV | derekmolloy.ie

Mon, 07/22/2013 - 15:55 -- rprice

How do you use OpenCV to capture and image process frames so that you can build computer vision applications under Linux on the Beaglebone – I do this using the boneCV.cpp program as described below. This code uses the OpenCV library which is available on the Angstrom distribution of the Beaglebone. Finally, I write a small program boneCVtiming.cpp to test the performance of the Beaglebone black for capturing and processing image data.

Creative coding; discovery and joy | The Pretentious Gamer

Fri, 07/12/2013 - 15:22 -- rprice

This particular video was using footage of the results from a 6 hour crash course with students who had no programming experience. They began with the source code for a simple breakout clone provided by Thirion, and ended up with this beautiful montage. The wonderful thing about the computational, the generative, the procedural, is that things emerge that often cannot be accurately predicted by the person responsible for the underlying logic.
