Creating an Augmented Reality (AR) Demo with the Vuforia Studio Pilot Program

Augmented Reality (AR) has been booming the past couple of months, especially with the deployment of Pokémon Go.

CTA Bus Tracking with the Raspberry Pi

I've never been much of a morning person; some days, the snooze button on my alarm clock works harder than I do. I also like to take public transit to work as often as possible. An unfortunate side effect of my erratic waking habits is that an extra 30 second delay in leaving sometimes results in missing the bus - and arriving (another) 10 minutes late to the office. Recently, I pulled my Raspberry Pi out of storage and picked up a cheap TFT display and set out to cure my morning woes. ...

Programming Madness National Championship

Create a Photo Booth with Your Canon DSLR

I attended a wedding a few months back where the bride and groom had rented a photo booth. With a combination of props and wine, there were many great photo strips being printed and passed around and it quickly turned into quite the contest. Naturally, I won. It seemed like a great idea – the guests were really enjoying themselves and the bride and groom kept a copy of each strip to put into a photo album documenting their big day. After the wedding, I was talking with some friends who ...
