The Xmas Demo 2022 has been released! Check the link for more info.
We're trying to get the Xmas Demo ready for launch Friday next week, as usual. It's supposed to run in 60 fps on the NVidia Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit with 2048 GPU cores. A preview:
The camera at the lecture was unfortunately placed far away from the stage, so not a lot of detail. A couple of tweaked images from it, and some random slides:
How did the lecture go? In a word: Triumphant. Trying to get hold of a recording, hopefully I'll post some pictures later.
Sjur and I will be holding a guest lecture (in Norwegian) at the University of Oslo Thursday 17 November 10:15, Sophus Lies auditorium. The topic is real programming (duh), ie. assembler, intrinsics and efficient programming.
Work on the Xmas Demo 2022 is progressing! This year's demo is gonna contain at least 20% new material compared to last year. Target hardware is the NVidia Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit with 2048 GPU cores. Sneak preview:
Due to a series of unfortunate events, the Xmas Demo 2022 Summer Preview has been scrapped. We haven't run out of summer yet, but there's just too many loose ends in it. Hopefully there'll be an Xmas Demo 2022 in December (or March 2023 as usual).
In other news, the book Ekte Programmering (the Norwegian version) is available from The National Library of Norway (permalink).
Sjur's new NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin! Not that much bigger than the Xavier and lots of extra compute power.
We're not just slacking here at Igno Labs! I spent quite a bit of time reorganizing everything in the new lab. The Xavier, Linux PC, Windows PC, laptop etc. is now up and running. Time to look into what to show off in the summer preview. Sjur has tried (and failed) talking me into doing some physics simulation again. All that code was lost in the great purge of 2018, so no luck there yet. Might be worth a fresh look this year!
The source code for Sjur's V73D engine is now available in the Xmas Demo 2021 article. It should be possible to build and run the entrire thing now.
It's March: Time to wrap up the Xmas Demo 2021. All the source code should be there real soon, including Sjur's V73D library.
Remastered video with improved music:
The first set of source code for the Xmas Demo 2021 has been released! Check out the link.
I've moved and set up the Xavier in my new lab. I'm going wireless this time, so here it is connected to a USB hub with Wifi and keyboard/mouse interface:
The Wifi actually worked without issues. I didn't have to recompile the kernel or anything like that. Amazing. But does it work with Netflix? A bit fat no. Damn.
We're working on releasing the Xmas Demo 2021 source code. Sjur's doing a remix of the music, too. Will probably make a new live recording from the Xavier HDMI output, so it looks less fake (cough).
