Tobias, Jesper og Jonas efter speciale aflevering

Så kom tiden hvor Akosta gruppen afsluttede kandidaten og alle tre fik, efter et 10-tal for specialet, titlen:

Cand.scient. in IT Product Development

Det er vi super stolte af, og denne side vil fortsat være vores dokumentation af de spændende og hårde projekter vi har arbejdet på igennem uddannelsens forløb!

Fremadrettet fortsætter Tobias og Jesper sammen deres arbejde med opstartsvirksomheden Appdictive imens Jonas også går iværksættervejen med andre eventyr indenfor webteknologier.

Tobias, Jesper og Jonas til eFactor

Så er vi tilbage på kontoret igen efter vores tur til eFactor2014 i Industriens Hus.
Det har været en spændende tur, og der er blevet taget godt imod BetterSpeaker; konceptet vi deltog med. Mange af de besøgende kunne relatere til det at snakke for hurtigt, når man bliver nervøs,, og de så potentialet i at have en mobilapp der vil kunne fortælle en det – mens man taler.
Vi kunne dog ikke drage afsted med nogle præmier denne gang. Dommerne var positive, men vi må jo nok erkende at vores projekt ikke var som skabt til rammerne “embedded hardware”.

Alt i alt har det dog været en god oplevelse – en ryste-sammen-tur i midten af et specialeræs – der har givet os lidt mere energi til at holde modet og arbejdsindsatsen i top!

Har du lyst til at læse mere, så har vi vedhæftet en lille beskrivelse af BetterSpeaker og en plakat.

Waiting for Efactor 2014

Waiting for Efactor 2014

I to måneder har vi nu, ved siden af specialet, arbejdet frem mod Efactor2014. En case-competition hvor vi har skulle lave et wearable device. Vi har lavet Better Speaker; en app/device der lytter til din tale, analysere hvor hurtigt du snakker, og giver dig besked, vha. en lille venlig vibration, hvis du snakker for hurtigt.
Og nu sidder vi så her, på et vandrehjem i indre københavn. Vi har forberedt os, opsat plakat og billeder på vores stand i Industriens Hus og stort set luget ud i alle de bugs der har fulgt os. Nu er der kun tilbage at vi alle får en god nats søvn og bliver klar til i morgen hvor præsentationen finder sted og vinderne bliver fundet!
Vi takker af her fra med et billede af udsigten fra vores værelse…

3D Prototyping Game Controller

A new page has been added to the Akosta website! This time its a project from our newly finished course: 3D Prototyping.

On this page there is a video and pictures of the final prototype, which is a game controller (= awesome!), and from the entire process leading up to this specific prototype – including 3D print, foam models and 3D modelling.

Hope you will take a look at it and some of all the other exciting projects which can be found in menu to the left! :)
