Useful Links to Get OpenCV to Work with Android

June 13, 2011


Why? I do too much different things and might forget what I’ve figured out before. So this is a public note-to-self. After playing around with open-source projects for quite a while I must add that they hardy ever work right the first time. Coders planning to attempt using any of the many wonderful open-source initiatives […]

There was the call… Unsuspecting of the horrific news I was about to be dowsed with I answered the phone. It’s my sisters birthday and on a day like this I would only expect a call from my mother to be nothing far away from pleasurable. Today I got fooled. Saw the number, accepted the […]

Last weekend I spend a considerable amount of time watching documentaries, and honestly… we live on the most fascinating 5.9 million exatonnes of matter. Yes, many of us seem to be captivated by […]

A glimpse at kingvidbina's YouTube channel

The Gantts chart for a school project viewed in a Project Management tool

Nobody wants to be chairman at these projects. The duties and responsibilities seemingly far outweigh that of the other teammembers, and for what?!? The same damn grade! I’ve just spend my entire day looking at Gantt’s charts, risk management tables and for a brief period… the faces of my teammembers. I was nauseous for a […]

Graffiti Comes to Life

February 20, 2011


Was just browsing some artist’s website/blog and stumbled across a few artistic masterpieces by a bunch of super artists. Man, they create some impressive works!!! I personally kept thinking about challenges in creating this animation because they seriously painted the 10 minutes of material frame by frame. Imagine the time and manpower that this project demanded. […]
