First mobile depth sensor for iPad

Nicolas Burrus-2
Dear PCL community,

Sorry if this sounds like a commercial spam, but as an early PCL user
and developer of RGBDemo, I know I would have been excited about this
news, so I could not resist from sharing it and starting the
discussion here :-)

So yesterday at Occipital, we announced the Structure Sensor on
Kickstarter (http://kck.st/16BkwuO). It’s the first mobile depth
sensor to be available commercially, with a special focus on iPad. It
is based on Primesense structured light technology, but has its own
battery and fits nicely on a tablet.

In addition to a high level SDK on iPad, we want it to be hacker
friendly so there will be opensource drivers for Android and desktop
(using OpenNI2). Feel free to reach out if you want to discuss some
projects of yours, we’re doing a Kickstarter campaign right now to
connect very early with potential users.

Cheers,
Nicolas

Nicolas,

Awesome! Congrats on the development. We hope to see millions of them out in the field!

If this is related to PCL, you could draft it as a news announcement and send it to us for publication. Then it will reach more folks.

Best,
Radu.

I have not been able to get the structure sensor to work with the openni2 grabber framework within PCL 1.7.2.  Has anyone else had luck with this?



Details:
The OpenNI2 package by Occiptal works ok on its own, I'm able to use the NIViewer and other applications.
PCL is working ok on its own too.  I can view ONI files, and visualize PCD files.

But I can't get the pcl_openni2_viewer to work with this sensor.
I am doing this both on VBox Ubuntu 14.04, as well as Odroid Ubuntu 16.

I keep getting errors regarding a "Warning:  USB events thread - failed to set priority.  This might cause loss of data..."
I see this both on the VM as well as the Odroid.

I also get errors regarding exynos dri missing on the Odroid and a similar libgl error on VM

libGL error: core dri or dri2 extension not found
libGL error: failed to load driver: vboxvideo

I have also tried passing the URI per this post:  http://www.pcl-users.org/Multiple-rgbd-cameras-using-OpenNI2Grabber-td4037528.html#a4037594

And I get:
$ sudo ./pcl_openni2_viewer "#my_uri" -depthmode 6 -xyz
pci id for fd 14: 80ee:beef, driver (null)
libGL error: core dri or dri2 extension not found
libGL error: failed to load driver: vboxvideo

Thanks for any clues
