Myo and Chrome … changing, opening and closing tabs with muscle gesture detection

myo_thalmic_labs_chromeTo get a better understanding of how to write scripts for the MYO I wanted to use the MYO to control Chrome. Here is what I set for the gestures:

  • Wave Out – Move to next tab
  • Wave In – Move to previous tab
  • Spread fingers – create new tab
  • Fist – close current tab

I also wanted to share this with everyone so feel free to download and use. chromecontrol.lua

Wearable technology the next frontier… brain reading with the InterAxon Muse headset

Muse_Interaxon_wearable_headset_unboxed

After backing Muse on Indiegogo I received my brain sensing wearable technology headset. Brain sensing! It doesn’t understand what you are thinking about but it more provides an understanding of the activity of your brain. In the box there is the headset, micro usb cable to charge the headset, a read me book and a legal document.

15 Useful Image filtering, processing, OCR, utilities and helper libraries / frameworks for iOS iPhone and iPad development

This is a list of iOS image filtering, processing, OCR, utilities and helper libraries and frameworks that I have come across for iPhone and iPad development and thought that they may be useful in one places:

1. GPU Image

By Brad Larson, GPUImage is a fantastic fast processing library to apply gpu accelerated filters to both live camera feed, movies or stills. It works on iOS 4 and above. It includes a range of filters such as Sepia, Grayscale, Blur but you can write your own easily.

2. Core Image

This is an apple framework available from iOS 5. It leverages the GPU and you don’t need to know details of OpenGL, OpenGL ES.

Documentation: Apple Core Image Docs

Feature extractor and descriptor OpenCV performance on iOS iPad and iPhones

I came across an article demonstrating the performance of the feature extraction and descriptor, which is useful when building opencv on iOS as it shows how the performance of your application will change across all of the devices. It compares ORB, BRISK, FREAK (using GoodFeaturesToTrack), FAST, BRIEF (using GoodFeaturesToTrack), SIFT and SURF. Feature And Descriptor Performance opencv Continue reading “Feature extractor and descriptor OpenCV performance on iOS iPad and iPhones” »
