Christmas, New year, what else ?

I would like to wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my readers.

I know I’m late on every schedule I announced before and i’m deeply sorry but my work outside the IT world has been very important to me in the last few months. I’m still working on everything I promised .

Enjoy your holidays, 2011 will be a great year, don’t worry…


Some announcements

Sorry for the fans, I wans’t very active on my blog for quite a long time now (at least for the non-VIPs) but it won’t last…
I’m heading for the end of my big exams and I will be completly free on July 10th.

So I won’t post many things until this date, of course any new VIP user will recieve a code for the VIP section and support on my blog and on the forums are still very active.

BUT after that, here I come again !!!
I will publish some things from the VIP section for the public (that’s not a good reason to stop the donations guys, new stuff will come along…) and I’ll probably make some announcements about the next release of CCV in July (I’m now working closer with Christian Moore). Maybe even some pre-release like I did for the 1.3 version, can’t be sure at this point…
And of course, my Win7 DVD is still on the tracks and I hope to release a RC in July… This DVD will include the latest CCV with the Windows 7 Driver as Service, the M$ touchpack, and many others applications I have gathered… There will be probably two versions, one with all the developper stuff needed, one with only the basic tools to get started… Of course, it wil be compatible with any version of Windows 7. You will have two options (I hope to manage that) : fresh install or updating your current win7 installation with my release.

I hope you are as excited as I am about this one because it will be a huge step for beginners and for those who want to switch for a new computer without reinstalling everything…


VIP Section for Donators

Some may have notice the new link on the right panel of the blog redirecting to a password protected page.
All past and futur donators will recieve an invite code to have access to this section and get some of my projects before their official release. I will post in this section all my current projects that are usable but not fully tested yet… so they can be a little bit unstable or not fully work at first…
Don’t worry, all software in this section will be posted when the right time has come, but if you can’t wait and want to get some of my goodies before everyone else, or just get involve in my work, just donate and you’ll get access…
I must approve the donation before the invite code is sent so it may take 24h before you recieve the code… but I do all I can to make this as fast as possible…



Here is a quick post because I don’t have time to do more, but I didn’t want all my beloved readers to be helpless without any news from me…

I don’t have time right now because of exams but I wanted to tell you what was planned for the summer…

Here are some surprises I will unveile this summer :
– CCV 1.3 mod with dual TUIO port broadcasting and all-in-on com mode (dual tuio + flash, dual tuio + flash +binary).
– CCV 1.3 with broadcasting features from previous mod, and fiducials capabilities.
– Windows 7 Driver with changed input port to get TUIO apps working while using the driver. This combined with the CCV 1.3 Fiducials let us use the driver with fiducials at the same time.
– Windows 7 Service Driver fixed (for me it doesn’t run automaticly on start up without the fix) : automatic launch will be available, no need for anything to launch after driver and service install are complete.

I hope you can wait until this summer… 😉

If you want to support my work, fell free to donate with the Paypal tool at the right of the screen, everything will go for MT developments.

Have a nice day !

Call for developpers

As some of you may have noticed, there is a new application called Movid on the NUI Forums which has made a great impression upon some members.

The dev team of this great (but still in dev) application is looking for people to help them !!!
You can find the main page of this project here : and the thread on the NUI Forums here :…

The core team consists of :
– Christopher Denter
– Mathieu Virbel
– Seth Sandler
– Thomas Hansen
so feel free to contact them if you can help !!!

After a few PM with the dev team, we agreed that the application was still in a too early stage of developpement to release any binairies yet (even here !!!).

Thank you for your help !!!

CCV projects…

I just wanted to make a quick post about some on going projects of the NUI Group team regarding further development of the Community Core Vision tracker…
Just to let you know that there is a version of CCV thant enable Hand Tracking as well as finger tracking… and there is also a project of a CCV tracker with finger and fiducials tracking…
I just wanted to make a little bit of teasing and I’ll share of course a compiled version as soon as I figure out how to play nicely with this awsome new tool.

UPDATE : I’ve uploaded the latest source code of CCV 1.3b (build 204), if anyone need the link, please leave a comment or contact me with the contact form…

Have a nice day !!!

For those other who wish to have it too, try contacting me or post a comment, I’ll send invits until I don’t have them anymore…

CCV 1.3a comments

I’ve now tried CCV 1.3a on my table, I can tell you : rocks !!!!
I’m not done with my tests but this release of CCV has a far much better tracker and as single cam tracking software, it is as stable as CCV 1.2…
There is very good integration with the PS3 Eye cam, you can control all settings from CCV, and also set zoom ratios, offsets, lens distortion correction,…
Hope you enjoy it as mush as I do, hope to get some feedbacks from people who have two PS3 Eye…
