This week, we decided to create an Android TV application which displays pictures and adjusts the room lighting depending on the displayed picture. This application isn't designed to compete with Philips' Ambilight, but simply change the hue of the room lighting depending on the dominant color of the picture, to create a "cosy" atmosphere.
We publish today a new firmware for the Yocto-3D-V2 with a few improvements but especially a fix for a bug on magnetic orientation. This is the perfect opportunity to remind you of some essential information to make the most of this module.

That is... unless your phone is not a smartphone, but an old mobile phone made by a small Finish company that has been taken over by a software editor a few years ago. Unfortunately the new owner company has decided to support only the very latest models. There isn't any official software available to retrieve your contacts on this phone anymore. So you are getting ready to copy all your contacts by hand, one by one... But wait a minute...

Usually, the manufacturers of this kind of instruments offer a proprietary software to drive them from a computer. This piece of software is usually more or less easy to use and not necessarily free. Obviously, it is tempting to get rid of the original software and to drive the devices on one's own. The question that we pondered this week was to know whether there was a universal way to drive this kind of equipment from an arbitrary software.
