Great presentation, Bart. The use case for Kinect is great, and I have some ideas I can't stop thinking about ... but this forum isn't a great place for it. Is the cloud programmability team still hiring?
Hey Tim and Dan ... Awesome stuff ... I'm really glad to hear Tim express interest in making devices for disabled people, this is one of the areas I've always had great interest in, having had a brother who had very limited motion. One of the things I remember hearing about industrial design, was how things like door knobs, handles, sidewalk ramps, and so on - which are often intended for those with limited motion - makes life easier for everyone from children to the elderly. Great area to work in and some cool examples. The reason I switched from computer science to neuroscience was in fact because I wanted to work on neural interfaces; that plan didn't come to pass, alas. There has been some pretty good advances in this area recently, but it's been slow progress, IMO over the past 15 years.
Very interesting ... but I'm still trying to work it out and despite watching (at least parts) multiple times ... I have so many questions that I'm not sure where to begin. I'd like to play with the code. Any chance of putting that up Brian?
It was great to see Erik grab his head at the thought of having to read some Knuth! But I felt that way about the Bananas paper!
