From Out-of-school-youth To Out-of-the-box-app-developer

Well, this is not about me even though i also am like this. Yah, i didn’t able to make it to a college but look at me now (a multi-platform web, app, arv, vr, brain control, etc developer) πŸ™‚

Anyway, this is about the future of an upcoming web, app or game developer that will also be coming from rags (then hopefully to riches).

As part of my Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) “i hereby declaring Martial Law” – oppsss, hehe that’s just a joke and i’ll never be on any government position anyway. What i’m trying to say is with this, i am giving away free tutorial services to deserving out-of-school-youth(s).

Me and some of colleagues will be announcing out the info thru maybe a printed post, put on bulletin boards and wait for respondent’s – then pre-screening – though we can only take one to three (1-3) heads for now. and can only pick some who we think has the edge.

Program will be

1.Announcement (posting of banners)

2. Screening

3. Announcement of chosen one(s)

4. A week of basic computer operation (if will passed will proceed to further computer training, but if not – we will have to start over again)

5. Computer graphics, layout, drawing, and animation

6. Game concept making, character creation, environment level design, etc.

7. Basic game creation using our upcoming Game Engine.

8. Testing and (if everything is good) Publishing to Playstore and (if lucky enough even to Appstore)

Soon!!!

For those who wants to join us in this small venture, please contact me. Anything that can help out to make this activity even more successful πŸ™‚

OpenAR

Augmented Reality (AR) is getting bigger than expected and its users specially the mobile users are getting a hand of it so easily. Simply downloading Apps from either the playstore or appstore (or any other resources). There are actually tons of great AR Apps already available out there.

Though there’s something not so yet stable – the WEB AR. Yah there’s AR.JS, JSARToolKit, trackingJS, AWe, Etc. that somehow works but still limited in terms of the following:

  1. Marker design is still the QR code alike which is not so good in branding
  2. The marker is so sensitive and should be seen in full before augmented objects will show
  3. The marker is very limited on skew & rotation making the augmented objects disappear from time to time if the skew limit is reached.
  4. Some web AR tracking only do 2D tracking
  5. Non of it works on mobile (or very limited on mobile)

Also, most people uses google chrome or firefox to view websites, social networking sites, etc. And users specially bloggers uses wordpress, joomla, drupal, and other web CMS.

The missing link is – “How can a user create an AR experience and connect it to his/her website by simply providing a linked”, “How can users share AR easily – its best by using the web or socialmedia site and just provide link to the AR experience”.

My solution πŸ™‚ – introducing OPEN Augmented Reality

OpenAR – is a platform where AR will be easily accessible by user as it is web enabled allowing users to just create an AR experience (drag & drop) and share it using a URL link that he/she will post on his/her website, social networking wall/page, then the other users will just click the link and voila “AR experience” will be shown (without downloading another AR App on their mobile phone or desktop)

A “dead simple” scheme that will make everything easy for everyone to experience Augmented Reality (later Virtual & Mixed Reality)

Coming soon πŸ™‚

KAMUKAMU: AR fun app

KAMUKAMU is just another “just for fun” project of mine (with the help of my team). Well, this idea was four (4) years ago already but due to too much occupied with profit making projects it went this long hehe. Then Snapchat & Facebook (etc) are now making face recognition apps. Well, kamukamu is actually a bit different as it will overlay somebody else face on the users face.. sort of a facemask though kamukamu will show popular Filipino celebrities, politicians, artist (singers/actors), and on the premium version an option to capture or upload any bodies photo that can be users facemask – and then users will find out if they are “magkamukha” or kamukamu.

 

 

 

 

Well, KAMUKAMU – is a word taken from Filipino language “kamukha mo” that means “look a like you” πŸ™‚

Launching very very soon πŸ™‚

 

Hidden Web Browser

Web Browser’s are already there and they are very useful – a lot. Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera & Edge are available.

Though incase you need an alternative one for some activity. Specially the “for adult only contents” or “for a must private/hidden activities”Β  i got you covered πŸ™‚

It will have custom name, custom icon of your choice or send one to us. Will be password protected and on start it will show a game or any phone utility to stealth/camouflage πŸ™‚

Order your personal Android or IOS hidden web browser now! for just $10.00 USD. Simply contact my sales staff at FB

Another Global Game Jamming Fun

Will be conducting another Global Game Jam activity this January 29-31, 2016. It sure will be more than just fun – being i sync with thousands of cool people from GameDev and Artist to Audio Engineers and Voice Talents πŸ™‚

I think ill be making another Mix Reality Game (Augmented and Virtual Reality combined) πŸ™‚

Hand-tracking using Plain Webcam great for Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality uses


As the age of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality is fast approaching, there are tons of devices coming out such as Head Mounted Displays (HMD) like Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Hololens, Epson Moverio, ODG, and SpaceGlasses. Also, tons of attachments for users control such as Haptics, Leapmotion, SmellVR, Rides, Etc.

But all these are still not available to the public yet as most of the above mentioned devices releases are for developers only as of now.

So me and my team do some research and development in order to bring the “touch experience” to VR and AR using only plain camera (either web cam or the mobile devices back/front cam).

To be cont… busy awhile – client meeting – will be right back

Pag-ibig mo (composed/sung by artpologabriel)

sa luha mong aking hatid
di ko n nga mababalik – ang tamis

pag ibig mo… ohhh
