  1. 1. RAMA PRASANNA CHELLA MUTHU Who am I ?
  2. 2. On BuddyHome BuddyHome is my favorite out of all. With few of my friends, I made a set of Robots to take care of my home and me. There were Robots for Cooking, Cleaning, waking me up. One of the walls at home is my computer screen and I used to interact with my computer through gestures. To know more on BuddyHome check out this video http://youtu.be/ncwTJ7A59dw
  3. 3. When Google announced ‘Gmail Motion’ – a April fool prank, I was working on Kinect at Microsoft. Given my background, I felt it was very much possible to bring it to reality. With 60 lines of code, with 2 hrs of coding I made that April fool prank a reality. I also made it work on Windows Live mail. It was fun… http://youtu.be/cors0076A7A Gmail (loose)Motion (a jab at Google’s April fool idea when I was at Microsoft)
  4. 4. It was in a movie called ‘Jeans’, Aishwarya Rai dances with a Skeleton. I was a school boy at that time. I made it a reality after 10 years at my own home with my own laptop & Kinect. It was loads of fun. http://youtu.be/Gdp7-mmNX-Q My Kinect Hack –
  5. 5. TINA TINA stands for The Intelligent Next- generation Agent. My wife still doubts if that was a real acronym or a girl’s name. I did this project at WIPRO. It was the vision of Sree at WIPRO, to have robots in Hospitality & Retail space. TINA can speak 7 different languages, See, hear people. It can change TV channels, set heater temparature, control lights, fans, drapes, etc. When instructed it can connect people to 911 on emergency & give you medicines. It was loads of fun building it.
  6. 6. TINA Making of TINA…
  7. 7. It’s a simple hack, where I took out the OEM system and replaced it with Windows Media center, connected to Internet, Night vision camera, Video & Audio processing with the night vision, etc… http://youtu.be/ktdXwtZYDyc On Winfotain = Windows + Information + Entertainment System
  8. 8. Mr. Astrobot This was a fun project that I did along with a bunch of college kids. It was deployed at Microsoft Signature building, 4th floor for a brief amount of time. When you are thirsty, you can open a webpage and ‘click’ on ‘Get me Water’ & this robot will bring water to your desk. It was loads of fun !!  http://youtu.be/3LY8wWyuEng
  9. 9. ‘Microsoft Sam’ It was fun. I was fascinated by the movie ‘Surrogate’ and decided to do build one myself. This Robot that you see on right was my surrogate. I can talk through it, I can see through it & can connect to it. I left this at office one day, went home, connected to it & was roaming in Microsoft cafeteria talking to people. The best was when I asked a girl, ‘howz Roti’ when she was eating ‘Roti’ and she went crazy. <actually scared>. I also went around knocking at few Director’s rooms & it was loads of fun.
  10. 10. On ‘News Nuts’ A free service that I created when I was a student to send News alerts as SMS to subscribers. This was when SMS was paid and cellphones was an expensive affair. I used a simple hack to send mass SMS for FREE via carriers. Yuppie, via the same carriers who charge for SMSes.
  11. 11. On DAS When Tsunami attacked TamilNadu, India, the very same beach were I used to play beach football with my cousin was turned upside down. I was a student that time, with a small pocket money. Instead of donating money, I jumped into to create a software system to predict Natural Disasters and alert people. Most of the data were from USGS. I won’t say it’s a perfect system, but it worked. Engineers should think on how to make the world a better place using their talent. That’s what engineers do !!
