Azure Kinect Library for Node and Electron

A couple of weeks ago, my Kinect for Azure arrived (thank you Lisa Jamhoury to shipping me one!). And: oh my god, it is so tiny, compared to the Kinect 2! The size does seem to come with a prize: you need a beefy computer + GPU in order to get decent skeletron tracking performance. The reason behind…

Migrate Google Drive Content to Team Drive

Moving content from a Google Drive to a Team Drive can be a slow, manual process. Using the standard Google tools, it isn’t possible to move Google Suite files with the file stream app. Uing the web interface, it isn’t possible to move folders as a whole. This means you’re stuck doing a lot of…

Detecting and Killing Processes in Node or Electron

When building a Kiosk application, you might want to check which processes are running on the system. This way you can try killing unauthorized processes or show a warning when an unauthorized process is launched. The nodejs xps package library offers a cross-platform to do most of the work. To make…

Phaser and Arduino game for Ketnet

I had the pleasure to work on another fun project for Ketnet. They’re launching a tv show around gaming, with famous comedian William Boeva as it’s host. During the show, they wanted kids to play a simple game against Boeva. The kids would play using a giant controller, and have to collaborate…

Building Bridges at FITC Amsterdam 2016

After my work on the Kinect2 library for nodejs and electron, I started working on a new conference presentation, which I gave at FITC Amsterdam earlier this month. This time, I focussed on building bridges between platforms, covering early experiments with Flash, up to C++ and Nodejs native code…

Kinect game for live television

That’s a first: my code being used on live tv! A couple of months ago, I was contacted by Joachim from Ketnet. They were building a new studio for their kid’s shows, and were looking for an interactive Kinect experience. I did some experiments with Kinect and Flash in the past. But as Flash is kind…

Javascript workout at Reasons to be Creative 2014

After last year’s elevator pitch I was invited back to gave a full talk this year. I wanted to elaborate on javascript and hardware interaction, while linking everything to a general theme. I went for “physical workouts”, and built some demos that had to do with that. During my talk, I covered…

500 people controlled my Arduino at Reasons to be Creative 2013

Just got back from the ever brilliant Reasons to be Creative conference in Brighton. I participated in this year’s elevator pitch (20 back to back 3-minute presentations!), had a ton of stress (and fun) presenting on the main stage! I wanted to share some of the work I’ve been doing with javascript…
