ITs been fun, and we have lived up to our name and done the impoessible. We have made a security camera system that is fully supported by any Data Protection Authority (Datatilsynet), except maybe in the US.
We set out with a goal of upgrading the office experience. Automating common tasks to save the company time, money and despair. A secondary goal was to give people even more reason to visit the SharePoint based intranet.
The result of a 3 day hack is many small and couple of main features integrated into SharePoint.
Kinect whiteboard capture
We all love to draw on whiteboards. But unfortunately sometimes what we draw is actually a bit useful and we want to take it with us. Then its up with the cell phone, take a picture, email to self.
SharePoint integrated webcam that captures the whiteboard in a meeting room. It uses Microsoft Kinect depth sensor to detect the largest flat surface and through some nifty and speedy algorithms it removes any object not located on this surface. The end result is a webcam that removes any people from the image while keeping the whiteboard content up-to-date.
Coffee maker monitor
With the love of old manual coffee makers blooming a common problem is that guy that never starts a new brew when he takes the last cup.
We developed an image analysis system for detecting the coffee maker in a live image stream and find how much coffee is remaining and whether its brewing or empty. Alerts are sent on Yammer, data is accessible from SharePoint (per cent, history graphs, live image) as well as from cross platform mobile clients (Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, Windows RT and Windows 8).
Getting up from your chair to draw on the whiteboard is so old-school. We have developed a virtual whiteboard that allows you to share a whiteboard from SharePoint and native mobile/pad/tablet. Combined with a projector nobody needs to get up. Perfect for those long meetings.
Tired of the eternal rant of your boss/sales department of updating your CV? Tired of the seemingly endless stream of ideas on how to share knowledge in the company? Just want to go home and play Duck Hunt? We have the solution. We have combined Duck Hunt and updating of competence profile with Yammer to create the perfect knowedge sharing tool. Everyone will love hearing about how much you know!
Tired of wondering if you are the most popular one in the office? With our new system of “Corrs Lite” you can track creds when people do something good (or bad).
User centric design
Wonderfull new simplistic design specifically designed for WinRT, Windows 8 and other touch devices. Scales to any screen size.
