Intel Software Innovator

Today I feel very excited to be recognized by Intel as a member of the Intel Software Innovator Program. 😀


Throughout 2014 I participated in multiple partner showcases with Intel demonstrating the Cubotix Rover with Intel Perceptual Computing technology. In appreciation of my efforts I received a little welcome package with a certificate of recognition, a thank you letter, a USB “key”, a beautiful white notebook, a cool black polo shirt, and my new favorite coffee mug to refuel with caffeine. 🙂

Intel Perceptual Computing Challenge Award

Interactive Gesture Camera

Interactive Gesture Camera.

We just won $1000 – One Thousand US Dollars! Awesome! Thank you Intel!

During the time of December 17th to February 20th Intel held the Perceptual Computing Challenge Phase 1. I entered “Google Earth Controller”, an application demonstrating touch-free navigation of Google Earth utilizing an Interactive Gesture Camera and the Intel Perceptual Computing SDK.

It allows you to fly like Superman across Earth or other planets while staying seated in your favorite chair! See video below.

Yesterday afternoon the winners were announced and Team “W” is happy that “Google Earth Controller” was awarded with Second Place. While this was just a weekend warm-up hack we are getting ready for Phase 2 of the challenge. Stay tuned!

Intel Developer Forum 2011

At today’s keynote of the Intel Developer Forum 2011, Intel CEO Paul Otellini presents Intel’s vision about the future of computing. It came by surprise to see Google’s Senior Vice President of Mobile Andy Rubin get on stage during the keynote. Paul Otellini and Andy Rubin announced a strategic partnership between Google and Intel for delivering x86 phones and tablets running Android. So that raises the question: what is going to happen to Intel’s own Linux platform for tablets and phones MeeGo? Paul Ottelini reassured the audience, that Intel will keep the collaboration with industrial partners utilising MeeGo on embedded devices.

Furthermore for laptops the trend goes towards Ultrabooks says Paul Otellini. Intel focusses on making them lighter, faster, cheaper, less power consuming and more responsive. A few Ultrabooks are exhibited on stage. A demo computer shows in which direction mobile computing may go: an ultra low voltage cpu prototype powered by a solar cell and executing Windows.

Cisco shows the next generation office phone. It looks like their current line of IP phones, however it’s color screen is actually a detachable android tablet powered by an atom cpu, I guess.

For a seamless collaboration of mobile and stationary gadgets, Paul Otellini presents Intel Pair & Share, which enables phones, tablets, computers and TVs to connect to each other and show notifications and messages on the currently used device.

Intel Developer Forum 2010

This year’s Intel Developer Forum from September 13th to 15th was all about Data Center Applications, Cloud Computing, and Embedded Systems. I was happy about the opportunity to present a Poster about my Leonardo Robot Project in the academic track. The conference was accompanied by Intel’s AppUp Elements developer meeting which occurred for the first time this year.
