Parrots On JavaZone – again!

September 25, 2018

If you want to enjoy our talk about Augmented Reality and an app which enables you to have “Star Wars” like telephony calls enjoy the video footage made by the great guys at JavaZone Oslo! JavaZone is the largest community driven conference which is always worth a visit!


Stereoscopic Realtime Style Transfer – A Deep Learning Showcase

August 20, 2018

We are working hard on new showcases and talks about Deep Learning and neural networks. This is the reason why there aren’t many new posts on this page.

Please enjoy our “elevator pitch” about our new Stereoscopic Realtime Style Transfer showcase based on the Dell Visor Mixed Reality headset. We were able to train our neural network with the style of the music video from A-ha “Take on me”.

Furthermore we wrote a technical article for JavaPRO. You can order an issue for free at https://magazin.java-pro.de/


Parrots on goto Night

April 27, 2018

Our talk about the Avatar telepresence robotics system using the Softbank Nao and the Microsoft Kinect at the goto meeting in Amsterdam is now available on Youtube. It features a demonstration of the system as well as live coding the robot and  some chocolate. Enjoy!


HoloCom – An Augmented Reality Showcase for Microsoft HoloLens

March 2, 2018

The hardware hacking team of the TNG Technology Consulting GmbH just went to another – so called – Winter Retreat into the alps to work on a new prototype. This time we had access to a Microsoft HoloLens.

What if Augmented Reality glasses allowed you to communicate with friends far away as if they were in the same room? The hardware hacking team of TNG Technology Consulting has implemented a software prototype enabling such hologpraphic telepresence. Using this software it is possible to project the 3D shape of another person into your own field of view. This resembles the holograms in the “Star Wars” movies.

The Augmented Reality concept already exists since the late 1960s. Microsoft Hololens is one of the first autonomous devices that can enrich the real world with computer generated elements and so-called holograms. Within this talk we will show and explain some ideas and concepts from the field of Mixed Reality. We will present some technical details of the device and demonstrate them within live showcases. Furthermore, we will show some simple programming examples for the Hololens using Unity 3D.

For this project a very new conference talk with live demo and live coding is available.

Enjoy!
