Way back in 2005 I had developed a desktop client for Yahoo, which was purely voice driven. I had used dictation mode and simple parsing to embed command. Like "START START" for start composing, "RIGHT RIGHT" for forward navigation etc. It started with system boot and synced received mails, with proper command it started reading out new mails. It was developed with SAPI 4.x something. But worked great in xp and still does. But this SDK, voice recognition module really is not smooth. Even after good bit of training, it is not even close to 2005 SAPI. So I dropped voice from my agenda.

And Then I also tried a mix mode module. Face+ Hand. Shared the session between two separate threads each for Hand gesture and Face. It reduced the frame rate to about 4fps par module. Are you able to work with both face and hand together with good speed?

I made about 11 Apps because I loved the concept of perception and wanted to check the integration with every possible usage like Ultrabook, Mathematics, Modelling, Kids, Security.


------------------------------------------------

Right now I am working on one of the most complicated works that I always wanted to work.

I take depth image first. I have written a simple module that converts this depth map image to point cloud [x y z] . Then I capture the RGB image. So I know the color value of each point. When you hold something close to camera, by thresholding Z axis ( distance from camera) It's model will be extracted. I have developed a custom 3-d pattern which is Model+Texture descriptor.

I am building a library of these models. Now User can create a 3-d scene by importing the models, change their sizes, then draw with hands and all. So No need to spend 1 hour with blender to create a model for a stone. Get a stone, hold before the app and your model and texture are all ready. Kind of too complicated than I thought it would be. But we as small firm runners strive on our desire to learn and do fancy new things. Smile | :) That separates us and give us jobs that bigger companies with monkey employees fail to deliver.

I will keep in touch with you Pete.You, Chris, Sacha, Dave, you guys are our role models Big Grin | :-D
