I’m back from Droidcon 2014 in Berlin which has been combined with Linuxtag and re:publica. So I was able to listen to talks of those as well. Last time I’ve been to Droidcon was in 2011 and in my opinion it has not changed for the better. Almost all lectures were dominated by product placement strategies and the hacker spirit from 3 years ago was mostly gone. Even during key notes I have seen people on the stage reading their speech from a paper – in bad English. My impression was that the Linuxtag lectures were mostly much better and a positive example was the lively session held by Bernd Erk from Netways about logstash (see photo). So will I be back next year? Hm… I don’t know, well at least the coffee was good…

Help your little one grow and learn through visual and tactile stimulation in this fun new interactive app. Incredible Baby Rattle is suitable for small kids aged from the wonderful ones to the fantastic fours! Let them pop, rattle, move, bounce and shake their way to a happy and curious place full of cuddly characters and friendly colours.
From the very second your baby was born, it has been taking in and learning from the sights and sounds of their brand new world. Most of this learning comes though play.
With Incredible Baby Rattle you can soothe and amuse your baby just by using your phone. Toy rattles have been used to calm babies for centuries. They promote learning by improving hand-eye-coordination through stimulation of their senses. These sensory treats also encourage your loved ones to explore and question the world around them.

You’ll discover new ones after a couple of days of fun or upgrade immediately from inside the app. It’s super-simple to use. Just shake the phone to bounce off rattle items from walls. You can pop or move rattle items with your finger.

I’ve moved on to Beta status since all levels are playable by now. Please have look at this video that shows what this game is about.
A new game is in the making and after several months we can lift the curtain. The game is called Six Degrees To Freedom and is setup in the year 2113. It features a hero who introduces himself to us in the following way:
“Maybe this would be easier than I had imagined. I knew that I was lying to myself as soon as this thought hit my conscious mind.
If only I had studied harder.
You see I had graduated from the cybernetics and neural networking division of the university with barely a pass. My compatriots were all off to Starship headquarters, or the prestigious planets, Veluma and Trattoria, whilst I had been commissioned to join the prison company, Illicitus, on the planet Nabokos. Not the worst assignment for a third-rate robotic neural scientist I thought at the time.
But the last few days on this hell-hole had changed my opinion somewhat. I had to escape – failure meant death.”
The game will feature 16 different enemy classes and many more model variations of them, 8 primary and 4 secondary weapons each with different capabilities, lots of enemy AI, power-ups, puzzles and an ever changing cave system. Also read an intense short story by the author Stuart McKenzie-Walker while progressing through the game.
Version 1.1 of our cross platform Baby Monitor AV features the possibility to talk to your baby at anytime during the monitoring. Just press and hold the Talk-to-Baby button like you would do with a Walkie Talkie.
Other newly implemented functionalities are:
- Proper warning if network connection is missing
- Alert sound if connection has been interrupted
- Timestamp of last image transmitted
- Battery level of recording device in percentage
