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: […]
