This post is about the first serious Virtual Reality projects I’ve had the joy to participate in. I was contacted by Atoms2Bits because they needed custom hardware made for the Virtual Supermarket (in which I’m now also participating as an entrepreneur).
When we started this project in 2015 there was no off-the-shelf eye tracking hardware available, so we had to develop this ourselves. This post is a short writeup about the collaboration, hardware we developed, the process and my part in the work.
On my blog I want to tag certain posts as “work” so that I can create a separate page that serves as a portfolio of my work. Because the date of the post isn’t always the date of the work I’ve done, some customisations were needed that were not directly available on the web or the Jekyll documentation.
I’ve added a category and custom date to the post’s front matter:
This gives us the necessary information to create a list of posts and a date to order them by. To solve the sorting issue, I used the following code:
This post is about a company I’ve been involved with from the start. I’ve seen it grow from an idea to a startup and participated in the Microsoft Ventures and Rockstart accelerator programmes.
TIQ is devoted to making time tracking less of a pain. It proactively captures your work activities
and uses them to automatically generate an overview
of the time you spent on specific clients, projects or tasks. We have created a short video to illustrate how it works:
In this post I will shortly explain what TIQ is, how it works and how I got involved in this company.
This post is about one of the main Virtual Reality projects I’m involved in.
The Virtual Supermarket is a VR environment specially designed for conducting research, developed by Atoms2Bits B.V.. I’ve been involved since June 2015 - initially for hardware development as a freelancer and after that I joined as a partner. [update: I’ve written more about the hardware development in this post]
It’s unique value is that we have opened up the possibility for eye tracking in Virtual Reality. This means we can track what people look at:
In this post I will shortly explain what the Virtual Supermarket is, how it works and how I got involved in this project.
