Back from Holidays

We’re back from our family holiday on the French atlantic coast. We were at the Dune du Pyla, europ’s biggest sand dune. It’s a big playground for children as well as adults hanging below a paraglider wing. Conditions were good on three days to fly on the big dune. So I trained touching the flat slope with the wing tip without hitting the sand myself. Levin did his first four hour kayak trip, of which he slept more than an hour.

I wasn’t so cut off from the internet for a long time…

Receptiongreet basic functionality working

Today I did important progress in another toy project. It’s name is receptiongreet and you can find out more on SourceForge.

Basic functionality was running today for the first time! The app starts up, reads all the face images provided in a sub directory and trains them. It then observes the area with the web cam, looking for faces. If it detects a face, it compares it to the trained ones. And if that leads to a match, it outputs a personalized greeting to the pc speakers.

So, from here on it’s polishing.
