  • Blog Post: Kinect Launches a Surgical Revolution. Will someone define a revolution?

    Link: Kinect Launches a Surgical Revolution I don’t know, is this a revolution or an innovation?  President Obama’s Healthcare plan is definitely revolutionary, whether you agree with it or not.  In fact that is usually a way to tell if something is revolutionary: Lot’s of disagreement. ...
  • Blog Post: Medical Image Analysis and a creepy 3D image

    Check out this link for a creepy but well done 3D image.  Ok, ok, you likely showed on this link looking for a paper idea, so jump over to the link: Medical Image Analysis There a bunch of links to papers that you can use in your bibliography, pretty cool.  Also excellent images of gory stuff...
  • Blog Post: Touchless medicine using Kinect! What will the Osteopaths think?

    Osteopathic medicine, what is it? Osteopathic medicine is a distinct form of medical practice in the United States. Osteopathic medicine provides all of the benefits of modern medicine including prescription drugs, surgery, and the use of technology to diagnose disease and evaluate injury. It also offers...

    In this video, Craig Mundie shows the prototype of a Robotic Triage Nurse that can be used in developing countries and elsewhere!  
  • Blog Post: Imagining a NUI future?

    Microsoft is imagining a NUI future.  Kinect is one of the top consumer devices and the surface is only scratched.  Check out the article at: http://blogs.technet.com/b/microsoft_blog/archive/2011/01/26/microsoft-is-imagining-a-nui-future-natural-user-interface.aspx Find out about the Robotics...
  • Blog Post: Natural User Interface: A future computing para-dig-m or para-dig-it?

    Wow, NUI, this is the thing for anyone starting out in exploring computer science.  Check out the NUI page at Microsoft Research, one of the leaders in NUI: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/collaboration/focus/nui/default.aspx You will find research tools and other information on that site!
  • Blog Post: NUI without the Kinect? Check out some of the cool ideas here

    Microsoft is nothing if not crazy about destroying the amazing products and ideas that come out of Redmond.  And nothing finer then Kinect, so now Microsoft Research works and supports researchers and inventors to build the competition to Kinect.  That to me is innovative.  Check out the...
  • Blog Post: 5 ways to use Heterogeneous Modeling and Design of Control Systems

    I was just thinking about Control Systems and Kinect.  There are a lot of projects out there that are using Kinect, but how do you model a Kinect in the loop?  I have no idea, but I started doing some reading about modern control system design. One of the papers that caught my eye can be found...
  • Blog Post: Kinect and Windows Presentation Foundation

    Windows Presentation Foundation, XAML and Kinect.  How to wire it all up? Well first I guess we should go down to the virtual hardware store and buy some XAML Wire to connect with the Kinect software. Is this really hard? No, in fact one of the earlier approaches to this uses the OpenNI to connect...
  • Blog Post: 20th anniversary gift: Free Computer Science Lectures: Seriously this is fun!

    Check out these lectures at Microsoft Research, and I understand if these videos have a lower priority than “Two Broke Girls”, but if you are interested in getting into the computer technology you will need to take a look at these videos! People who think that Microsoft isn’t innovative, are simply wrong...
  • Blog Post: Kinect is fine for some uses, but could it be use for this one? (Muscular Dystrophy)

    What if you have a child that has Muscular Dystrophy which means that your child will eventually lose all muscle function, and if you guessed what happens when you lose all of your muscle functions, you guessed right. Over the years muscle tone is lost at varying speeds and the patient loses the capabilities...
  • Blog Post: Human Antennas? Artificial Intelligence in Rabbit Ears? Where is my coffee? Holey Moley

    Likely before your time, but in the old days of TV, some TVs had “rabbit ears” and if you held them the channel you wanted to watch would come in better. So what if Microsoft goes one better than Kinect, where you are the controller to Antinect (I just made up that name) where you are the antenna? Not...
  • Blog Post: Research: Kinect for Windows SDK beta

    For natural user interface researchers this is good news!  To be able to utilize the Kinect for Windows SDK Beta in research is going to lead to improvements in physical therapy, touchless data entry in sterile environments, as well as other unknown applications. I would recommend that you go to...
  • Blog Post: Kinect: Researcher briefs the ADEs at the Imagine Cup

    Stewart Tansley gave a briefing on Kinect SDK for Windows that will come out later in the year.  Looks pretty exciting.  More information after MIX.  The Microsoft Kinect SDK for Windows will be focused for the hobbyists, students, professors, non-commercial researchers.  This is...
