  • Azure Event Hubs from WinRT/UWP Apps

    Just a small thing that caught me out the other day. I wanted to send some simple data from a Windows 10 UWP app to an event hub in Azure. There’s a great guide to getting started with event hubs here; Getting Started with Event Hubs which worked really well for me up until the section ‘Send messages to Event Hubs’ which has a step 3 which asks you

  • Windows 10 Technical Preview 10074: Getting Push Notifications to Your UWP App

    I’m doing work with the Windows 10 Technical Preview and learning a few things that I’d really like to write down but I’m a bit short for time at the moment so I’ve a number of topics that I’ll need to return to in the future. However…I spent some time today just trying to get a simple push notification to my Windows 10 UWP app running on build 10074

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): Baby Steps with Object Tracking

    Continuing with this set of posts around the RealSense camera, I thought that I’d dip my toe into the area of object tracking. The RealSense SDK integrates technology from metaio which enables it to track objects as they pass by the camera and offers different approaches; 2D object tracking based on a reference image of the object to be recognised in

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): Segmenting Video for ‘Green Screen’ Scenarios

    Continuing the posts that I’ve written recently on the RealSense camera , I noticed a video-related feature in the SDK that I hadn’t experimented with yet which is the idea of segmenting the user or users from their background. Like a number of areas of the RealSense SDK, this has parallels with what I see in the Kinect v2 for Windows SDK in that both

  • A Quick Parse of the //Build 2015 Session List

    I just flicked through the session list for //Build and was making a note of the sessions that (on first pass) line up with my particular set of interests and I thought I’d publish it here given that I was making the list anyway Note that the list; isn’t sorted or prioritised in any way has been made without any visibility about what’s happening in

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): Three Dimensional Fingers!

    Continuing the posts that I’ve written recently on the RealSense camera , I wanted to take the bits that I’d done in the previous post and go beyond just tracking the joint data from the hands in front of sensor in 2D and move to representing them in 3D. As usual, I’m a bit challenged when it comes to 3D and I tended to fall back on ‘bigger building

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): From Hands to Fingers

    Continuing the posts that I’ve written recently on the RealSense camera , I wanted to look at the more detailed aspects of hand tracking beyond just knowing whether hands are in front of the camera. I kept with the framework that I’ve had in the previous posts where I’ve used WPF and I have a MainWindow which hosts a number of controls that implement

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): More on Hands/Gestures

    Adding to this set of posts and particularly this last post I wanted to experiment more with hand tracking. I went back to the WPF application ‘framework’ that I’ve used in previous posts and I wrote a new control that I called HandInformationControl and I plugged it into my MainWindow UI and ‘processing framework’ that I’ve used in previous posts;

  • Intel RealSense Camera (F200): Hand Alerts & Gesture Alerts

    Adding to this set of posts I wanted to begin to look at the hand tracking capabilities and I figured I’d try and start simple with by looking at the capabilities around ‘alerts’ and ‘gestures’ and it feels very familiar to what I did with facial alerts here and I wrote a comparable console application in the first instance; namespace ConsoleApplication1
