MidpSSH – SSH at your fingertips

While browsing the web for new J2ME programs for the software collection in my LG KU250 mobile I just happened to come across this little piece of software called MidpSSH, an SSH and Telnet client for MIDP 1.0 / 2.0 (J2ME) devices such as Java(tm)-capable cellphones and other mobile devices. Wow That’s pretty amazing!
Well with this little piece of software enables to control any public server with SSH enabled to be used and controlled from any corner of the world with a GPRS access. It’s true that with my mobile it’s bit difficult to use since the screen real state is very constrained. But with a caliber phone it would be really useful.
Following is a short video demonstration of the software.

Kinect for Windows SDK beta Released

According to the Microsoft Research, “The Kinect for Windows SDK beta is a programming toolkit for application developers. It enables the academic and enthusiast communities easy access to the capabilities offered by the Microsoft Kinect device connected to computers running the Windows 7 operating system.”

“The Kinect for Windows SDK beta includes drivers, rich APIs for raw sensor streams and human motion tracking, installation documents, and resource materials. It provides Kinect capabilities to developers who build applications with C++, C#, or Visual Basic by using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.”

The most interesting thing is the skeletal tracking API. The demonstrated Shape Game using this API is pretty awesome. Now I just need to get hold of a Kinect sensor. Smile
