I meant to post this up the other day, but we put up a Press Release regarding a project for one of our clients: Intellifit, where we utilized Flash in concert with some other very cool technologies and internal tools we have developed. I put up a previous post about this project a little bit ago and wanted to post and update. We recently wrapped up a phase of development that proved very successful for them at a recent event where they demonstrated their body scanning technology by scanning thousands of women and accurately providing body measurements. Its quite something to see in person, especially the speed at which the scan is accomplished and the fact that you dont have to disrobe or wear special clothing like laser based systems. Seeing your measurements print out (over 36 different measurement points) along with custom clothing recommendations and a full 3D model of your body calculated out in about 15 seconds is really quite impressive. Its definitely been one of the most interesting and unique projects I have worked on.
In regards to development and our role in the project, what we have done for them is to provide a user friendly interface and control layer to their underlying proprietary body scanning hardware and software. From a 30,000 foot perspective we talk to their C applications via a custom COM object to allow a custom wrapper application, or what we and other kiosk software vendors call an OSS or “Operating System Supplement” that in turn provides a low level communications layer between all the individual hardware and software pieces. Inside the OSS application, sits the custom Flash application and user interface that allows an operator and administrators to control all the functions and operations of the machine, scanning, printing, file operations, etc., without having to be an engineer or programmer. With our custom wrapper and OSS we have extended the power and features of Flash beyond those of what it is normally capable of doing and by utilizing Flash we have been able to do some really rapid development.
I have worked on plenty of projects where we have utilized Flash as a front end to some very unique hardware/software projects. Prior to this it was: interactive kiosks, wireless devices and PDA’s, ATM machines, and custom high speed coin counters. Now a one of a kind high speed radar body scanner. What kind of interesting projects are you integrating Flash into?
