[Kinect-controlled news feed]

Web C++ Applications Date: Jun 2011

Kinect-Controlled News FeedAt Edelman Digital we developed a C++ program that could display user's Facebook and Twitter feeds and that was controlled by hand gestures captured by Kinect connected to a PC.

Technologies used: C++, GTK, OpenKinect, OpenCV, RESTful Web Services, Git

The program could switch between displaying Twitter and Facebook feeds when user made an opening window gesture. Scrolling was controlled by opening palms towards the Kinect cameras and moving the arms up and down.

The graphical interfaces were created using GTK. OpenKinect was used a library for interfacing with the Kinect device and computer vision library OpenCV was utilised for blob detection.

My Role

I was mainly involved in coding gesture recognition and the social network data processing.

How I Added My Twitter Feed

Following my decision to leave Facebook, I have decided to start using Twitter more as a means of exchanging information with my friends. Adding a Twitter feed is pretty easy as Twitter does not require you to authenticate so you can just ask for N latest tweets using an ordinary GET request.

Why I Left Facebook

I decided to delete almost all my activity and all my photos from Facebook when they announced that Timeline would become compulsory. While I really think that Timeline is a bad idea as it lets your history be browsed in a very easy manner, this was not the only reason I left...

pyCreeper

The main purpose of pyCreeper is to wrap tens of lines of python code, required to produce graphs that look good for a publication, into functions. It takes away your need to understand various quirks of matplotlib and gives you back ready-to-use and well-documented code.
