gNewSense (Fresh Ubuntu without bones)

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

I have just discovered a new GNU/Linux distribution (born in 2005) which I didn’t hear about until now. It is about a project based on Ubuntu where they have removed every propietary (privative) software and the binary blobs. I’m downloading it in order to check if it works fine.

On May 19th, 2000, the nuclear submarine HMS Tireless had to stay in Gibraltar in order to be repaired. At that time I was studying at high school, and due to the repercussion of the new I decided to use this subject for my first videogame “Tireless”, a kind of pong, quite simple but funny. I hope I will show it soon.

Computer Vision II

It seems I was right, using chrominance was a better way to detect a hand instead of just intensity.

Visión por computador

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

Right now I’m a little bit busy with a small project for computer vision. It’s about a program that recognizes different things through the web cam, things like circles or my hand.

For example, here, the program is successfully recognizing a circle sketched in the blackboard and the rounded shape of the camera objective. However, only some times it recognizes correctly the two small circles.

Circles recognition

And here, the program is bounding the shape of my hand. This is the first version and is not working so smoothly, but I’m sure that it will work better with a color difference than with intensity.

Todo funcionando a la primera en Ubuntu 8.04 para Acer Aspire 5720

Saturday, May 10th, 2008

I have just installed Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron in an Acer Aspire 5720 and I have checked that everything was working perfectly smooth: the webcam, the sound card, the wireless, 3D acceleration, compiz fusion… Everything without compiling the kernel or installing external modules like in the previous release.

It seems that there is no need to keep on publishing any solution for these kind of problems hehe.
