Christmas, New year, what else ?

Hi,
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…

Cya.

Teasing UPDATE : MORE

Hi,
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

Hi,
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 : http://movid.org/ and the thread on the NUI Forums here : http://nuigroup.com/forums/viewthre…

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 !!!

NEW CCV 1.3 Binairies {UPDATE 03/02/2010 22:00}

Hi,
I wanted to tell you that I’ve updated the binairies of CCV 1.3a. I’ve fixed one major issue in this release. As you may know, CCV sends over TUIO the (0,0) coordinate every time a blob appears out of the calibrated zone. Well not anymore with this version of CCV 1.3a.

Here are the links to download it :

http://cktouch.fr.nf/share/ccv13.zi...

or the Megaupload link :

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=B1OWC3...

Enjoy !!!

{UPDATE 03/02/2010 22:00} : All improvments from the SVN repository are included in this new release, included a better (0,0) fix.
