Making Camparc

This is a writeup of how we went about making Camparc, a panoramic camera ball. The story starts in July 2014 when STRP asks us to make a public space game for a ‘scene’ — one of the events leading up to their 2015 biennial. They were looking for something eye-catching, accessible to a broad […]

Week 292

Some significant achievements this week! Let’s start with Camparc Mark II. We had a successful run during the weekend. Hardware and software performed admirably—a tip of the hat to Aldo and Arnaud—and people seemed to really enjoy it. Later this week we provided the STRP crew with some additional documentation so that they can run […]

Week 290

We finished sprints on two projects this week. For Camparc Mark II, Aldo and Arnaud pushed hard to get a release candidate ready. Lots of hardware tweaks were made and development on the Oculus Rift software was done. In the meantime I focused on some final production details, such as making sure we have plenty […]

Week 288

I was joined by Alper in the Utrecht studio again this week. With all that’s going on in NL at the moment it’s nice to have him on site a little more frequently. One of the things we did was start the second sprint on SHACHI. Alper and Tim worked together on the alpha version […]

Week 286

We made some good progress on several projects this week. The big one is Home Rule. Alper and I kicked it off with some planning for the next two weeks. Then we immediately started cracking on things. Alper got a prototyping setup in Unity up and running, including iBeacons integration, and proceeded to do some […]

Week 282

A large part of this week was taken up by our annual OKR review and subsequent reorientation of OKRs for 2015. An intensive exercise, but seriously worth it. The technique helps us build learning into our tiny organisation, and that’s very valuable. We’ll share some outcomes of this review in a separate blog post soonish. […]

Week 281

To make the most of the first full workweek of the new year Alper arrived from Berlin to work with me at the Utrecht studio on a number of things. We kicked off our second project with KLM on Wednesday. I went over to “building 600” on Schiphol Noord to share our preliminary ideas for […]

Week 263

Last week was the penultimate week for Camparc so everybody was heavily involved in work on that. I did research on how to get videostreaming to work on OS X whose capabilities seem to have seriously regressed. I built a custom app using VLCKit that does what we want it to do. Aldo Hoeben worked […]

Week 260

This was the first week after my holiday so I spent Monday mostly just getting back into things. A process that used to be quite painful but ever since we mostly run on a combination of Asana and Slack it is much easier to get a sense of what has happened and what needs to […]

Week 258

The studio is on a bit of a summer schedule with one principal gone on holiday and me finishing things before I go on mine. Most of my time has been spent doing maintenance on existing projects, moving forward new ones and lots of social calls for lunch/dinner/coffee. Two current projects did see significant progress: […]
