Speaking @ Microsoft DevDays ’09, May 28-29, The Hague
Posted by jpluimers on 2009/04/21
My session is in the “Geek Night” track that is held on the evening of May 28.
It is gonna be a cool session, showing collaboration on many levels:
- as in integration between .NET and hardware (WebCams and Servos through USB)
- as cooperation between you and Open Source projects
- as building your own shooter device from plexiglass and other easy to obtain hardware
- as interaction between users and the automated shooter device
The session works towards the creation of an automated shooter device.
It consists of a USB webcam of which you monitor the video stream, a USB Servo Controller that steers Servos and relais, and a laserpointer.
The laserpointer can track moving objects (like you, the audience!) as seen through the webcam.
During the session you see the pro’s and con’s of using Open Source, what can go wrong when using multiple-web-cams, and much much more.
Prepare for a fun night!
