A step forward with the CalaBoard project

The enthusiasm caused by the first place at the TechCrunch Summer Pitch Battle (see previous post) gave us a boost in confidence and allowed us to heavily improve the CalaBoard project prototype. Here is the list of what we achieved up to now:

  • Now CalaBoard features a pointer tracking functionality (the technology that allows the program to follow the finger while it is waived in front of the camera) that proves to be reliable also in scarce light conditions;
  • The pages containing the sketches drawn with the finger can be surfed back and forth through the virtual flip-chart functionality;
  • The colors of the pointer can be changed through the color palette available through a specific icon.

In the meanwhile we have already been developing the communication channels for the video and the audio streams that provide a real video-conference experience and – most of all – show a completely new way of interaction between participants. But this is not all and soon we’ll publish a new video with a huge step forward in the precision of the lines drawn. Stay tuned!
