2021 Worthy Projects
« on: January 02, 2021, 09:34 PM »
pdInput

Alternative input methods for keyboard and mouse input via camera.

The goal being to use computer vision as a virtual keyboard and mouse to help both limited-mobility fellows AND people wanting to avoid repetitive stress/strain.

Commodity hardware is capable these days! Just regular webcams/equipment used.

Aim is having it be the main input method for daily/normal usage. This opens the doors to potential users who may have required special hardware.

Any limb that can move (even a small range) can control the cursor and type.

We being with a very limited range imposed: a person having only two working fingers or both toes. Either having cameras pointing at their feet or to the single working finger per hand.

We build from there.

OpenCV



pdUniweb

An Unikernel-based web engine.

The goal being getting web hosting costs as close to zero as possible.

The unikernel technology is the natural next step from containers.

I envision unikernels as the ultimate shared hosting model.

Each user can have full independence and full security (since they have no login/shell and reduced attack surface). Mixing them with Hypervisors frees users from any underlying operating system requirements/lock-ins.

Unikernels are truly set-and-forget until next hard-coded update: maintenance bliss!

This removes the need for managed hosting. Yearly savings can go to families’ budgets (think inclusion).

Re: 2021 Worthy Projects => pdInput + pdMultisite, December release!
« Reply #2 on: December 06, 2021, 04:33 PM »
First public versions for both projects are being released this month of December 2021!

pdInput comes with basic binary detection as first module.

pdUniweb is now pdMultisite, the home-grown web engine powering our very own network of sites (PublicDomain.is, Armonia.is, Unum.is)

Rather simple design for first version, yet the current goal is simply to have one login across the sites + enough functionality to run what we need :)
