Hi! AR.js should work fine because it is entirely javascript. We are actually trying out some of QR code detection and laying 2D image or 3D object over it: https://github.com/jeromeetienne/AR.js/blob/master/README.md. If you are planning to build it and are successful, please share! That's the spirit of Open EyeTap.


However we have not seen anyone run Android natively or in an emulator on the raspberry pi zero.

    Hello everyone! I decided to take a small break from the VMP project (see other posts) to hack something fun for the OpenEyeTap! I like to run and bike, so I have built a utility with a live speedometer built in. Also in this library is the function to track your location as you run, so you can later view your route (soon I will overlay this on top of a map, maybe Google Maps API?), your speed along the route, and the total distance you traveled. Here's the Github repo: https://github.com/CaydenPierce/OpenEyeTapJogWear Give it a pull and try it out. This is great for beginners as it is simple and was made in an hour or two. Future features to add would be live directions (Google Maps API, again) and a live update counter of distance traveled. This is a simple feature, but imagine the possibilities when a community of users start building features of all kinds, then we will have functionalities for all types of activities. Cayden Pierce

    Steve Mann told me that a great use of the OpenEyeTap would be a device to help those afflicted with Prosopagnosia (an inability to recognize faces) to be able to recognize people. This is a first step in the direction of the "Virtual Memory Assistant" that I have discussed previously. Here it is! https://github.com/CaydenPierce/OpenEyeTapVirtualMemory Follow install instructions to get things working. Let me know if there are any issues. I will put up an SD image shortly to make things easier (building the dlib C++ lib takes a full day haha).

    This is a continutation of my "Virtual Memory Assistant" post in the "Materials and Design" forum. From my experience and my studies in psychology, it seems evident to me that a central theme in the human mind is other people. That is, while you may not remember the time, date, weather, or your mood when an event took place, you will undoubtedly remember the people you were with. Thus, to create a virtual memory assistant, I have begun with people. Using the Python face_recognition library ( https://github.com/ageitgey/face_recognition ), I have begun developing the capabilites to store a database of human faces that can be recognized during use. I do not have access to public face datasets (something I'm sure will very soon become widely available), and becuase data laws state that I may not take profile pictures from social media. Therefore, I am implementing the ability for the EyeTap to learn who you know as it is used. This works by saving a still image of everyone you communicate with during the day. Later, the user tags all new images with the names of the friends and coworkers whom they were interacting with. Thereafter, the EyeTap will always recognize this individual immediatly. Everything I have described, I have already developed. It is not much, but I have not been working on this very long. I will upload to github and will post the repo for this project soon. Once human beings are able to be recognized, the EyeTap now has a framework for memory classification. Imagine accessing a database of every single conversation you've ever had with a person? (looking into conversation transcription using Google API's). Imagine, at the end of each day, being presented with an automatically summarized description of the days events and important points in conversation. Imagine the EyeTap reminding you briefly of small facts and conversation tidbits your biological brain has forgotte, WHILST in conversation. This is truly a development that be an expansion of the human mind, exaclty as Raymond Kurzweil, and many others, describe as the future of human symbiosis with technology.
