MPEG 4 / H.264

Progress with H.264

H.264 is a codec - which is important for sending larges amounts of data (like audio & video) over the network.  Telerobotics would benefit from H.264.

For maximum confusion there are a variety of acronyms which all mean the same thing.
Here are 3 which mean exactly the same thing.

MPEG 4 Part 10 = H.264 = AVC

We want the webgui capable of working like skype - with more options :)
In order to do that we first try to get our webgui to return some necessary HTTP header info regarding our file

An Agent has been detected in the matrix!

An Agent of the Matrix in the Rift

So, as it turns out the Oculus Rift latest SDK and Runtime no longer supports using "extended model" with the Oculus Rift.  Which means we need to update our support for it.  I have started working with LWJGL and some examples.  Above you can see a virtual screen rendered in front of the user in the oculus rift.

Whizz Systems understands the connectivity and SI challenges in very high speed designs, from die pads, to packaging, to interconnect on the PCB design, Assembly and manufacturing. We have the SI and design expertise, and tools in place to approach the entire interconnect as a system, and produce very high quality cutting edge designs.

How to hook up the PC to the Arduino?

bjmccoy50's picture

I have looked through everything I can find on the web, so this must be really easy to do but, I must ask anyway; does MRL use the USB port of the pc to talk to the usb port on the arduino to control to the board; or is a ftdi cable needed to talk to the tx/rx pins of the Arduino.

Is there a wiring diaagram that shows this?

It odd that I could not find a simple statement of this...but I am old!!!!
