  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): Depth + Colour

    Adding to this set of posts around the RealSense camera and SDK I wanted to try and see what it was like to combine streaming data from multiple sources and so I thought I’d experiment with displaying depth and colour data at the same time. This scenario feels very much like programming with the Kinect v2 SDK where you use a MultiFrameSource/Reader

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): A Bit of Depth

    I’ve been playing around with the RealSense SDK in these previous four posts; Intel RealSense Camera (F200)- ‘Hello World’ Part 1 Intel RealSense Camera (F200)- ‘Hello World’ Part 2 Intel RealSense Camera (F200)- ‘Hello World’ Part 3 Intel RealSense Camera (F200)- ‘Hello World’ Part 4 but I haven’t really done anything with the data as of yet other

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): ‘Hello World’ Part 4

    Following up on my previous post , I wanted to put some of what I’d figured out back behind something that I could at least point and click my way through and so I made a ‘UI’ in WPF for selecting a stream and viewing it; In doing so, I stuck to the approach that I’d taken in the previous post of enumerating modules, devices, streaming profiles but

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): ‘Hello World’ Part 3

    Following up from my previous post , I wanted to experiment a little more with the object model offered by the RealSense SDK. While I’d managed to get some video onto the screen in the previous post via the PXCMSenseManager class, I hadn’t really felt that I’d known what it was doing for me. With that in mind, I went back to writing a simple console

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): ‘Hello World’ Part 2

    Picking up from my previous post , I thought I'd see if I could get a simple stream of video data from the RealSense camera. The SDK docs walk you through the architecture of coding against the camera which is done via a series of configured modules; with the I/O modules pushing data to/from a device and the algorithm modules doing work like facial

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): ‘Hello World’ Part 1

    I've been itching to experiment with Intel's RealSense technology. Here's the glossy video that sold it to me - I'm a sucker for a glossy video :) there are then some more general details on Intel's website; Intel RealSense or, perhaps more for the developer view of the technology you can go to; Developer info for RealSense but,

  • More Personal Computing?

    This post is a bit (or maybe a lot) higher level than most of the things that I’ve published on this site but it’s something that I’ve been thinking about lately so I figured I’d share… I’ve done a few public talks recently where I’ve started with a theme of ‘Windows at 30’. Windows 1.0 was out

  • StaffPad for Windows Store

    I’m very excited today to see the launch of StaffPad, a groundbreaking music notation application from the UK which features advanced handwriting recognition that allows you to write music naturally with a pen and play it back in high fidelity. You need to see (and hear) this to be properly dazzled by it - click the picture below to jump to the

  • Windows 10 Preview (10041): App Lifecycle in a Desktop/Tablet World

    Disclaimer – this note was made against Windows 10 Technical Preview 10041 and is purely my own experimentation. I have no additional knowledge of what’s going on with Windows 10 other than what’s publicly observable in the preview build and SDK. Your results may differ and they’ll almost certainly change between now and when

  • Is Your Next Phone Your Next PC?

    It’s getting increasingly difficult to differentiate a phone from a tablet from a PC and, today, while watching the Microsoft stream from Mobile World Congress one of those differentiators for “Windows Phone” seemed to disappear – the absence of a physical keyboard. Along with the launch of another large-screen Lumia, the 640XL
