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

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!
