A few weeks before when we where in San Francisco we had the opportunity to give an interview for Intel regarding our activities in the development of gesture controlled software and showcase demos.

Yesterday, we held our talk about gesture control and the next wave of 3D cameras at the e-fellows IT Day for TNG Technology Consulting. We showed the students the possibilities of gesture control and presented lots of our demos and showcases. The listeners responded to it in a very positive way.
Last weekend, we were testing our car robot installation for the Deutsches Museum in Munich. It was a huge success. After building the installation on Saturday, people were able to drive around the cabinet on Sunday using gesture control only. We learned a lot about the difficulties they had with our control metaphors and we were also able to test the technical specifications in detail.
As one of the volunteers at the museum said: Normally, there are not a lot of people in the IT department, but with the new exhibition, it is all of a sudden very crowded.
We will keep on incrementing our showcase and test it a few more times before we “release” our first version early next year.
On the 28th of September we held our gesture control talk at the JavaOne conference in San Francisco. This huge event – and the Oracle Open World conference – was visited by thousands of people and attracted a lot of attention. We were able to present demos with the Intel Real Sense (also known as Creative Gesture Camera or Senz3D), Leap Motion, and Kinect v2 technologies. This was also our second presentation within the United States.
We are currently working on the exhibition project for the Deutsches Museum München. Within the next few days, we will provide another blog post concerning updates to this topic.
Team ParrotsOnJava.com is currently travelling through the USA. We have just received our very new Intel RealSense cameras and can’t wait to try them out once we are back in Germany. Before this we have our talk at the biggest Java conference in the world, the Oracle JavaOne conference in San Francisco.
Join our talkon the 29th of September in the Hilton Hotel Ballroom 1/2/3 near Union Square from 12:30 to 13:30.
Enjoy our awesome real world object demo showcases, e.g. bare hand controlled drones. Do not hestitate to contact us if you want to grab a beer (or coke) with us in San Francisco.
Yesterday we were presenting the Intel RealSense webinar. This webinar is dedicated to all the folks out there who want to get in touch with the new Intel camera and SDK. It provides some insights and tips on how to program a gesture controlled application.
The webinar was held in German language. Have fun watching it.
