In June 2012, a few colleagues at Yelp and I decided to do the 'First Yelp Check-In from (near) Space'. We built a rig containing my iPhone, a GPS, APRS HAM radio, and a GoPro to be carried to 100,000 ft and perform the first Yelp check in from space.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be? If you're like me, it'd be the power to fly. I'm a software engineer; I make things happen by writing code. So I wrote a Mac app that allows you to control a quadcopter by flapping your arms like wings!
A project for Yelp's fourth hackathon to create a virtual telepresence window using head-tracking and a wide angle webcam. Relevant video starts at 2:48.
A proof-of-concept project to get Kinect/OpenNI skeletal data into Garry's Mod to control ragdolls and other entities.
For Yelp's Summer Hackathon, a few other engineers and I outfitted a keg with a flow meter, temperature sensor, card reader, and an iPad for an even more social tech beer expience.
For the Dorkbot SXSWi 2010 event, Gabriel Handford and I added a camera to my iPhone controlled RC car (wrtilty) so see what the car was seeing, from the iPhone.
