01.11.2020: This project has been with me for the past months. We just finished our beta testdrive with a close testing group a few weeks ago. The shop will be completely open on the 25.11., with the first delivery going out on the 2.12. It was pleasure working on this project and I am looking forward to its lift-off.


25.11.2020: Viktualia is open for business! (Viktualia ist am Start!)


28.3.2021: Now also delivers directly to your doorstep, if your address is within the delivery area. A perfect fit for those that can not go out and still want access to fresh products. We also added a quick category menu within the shop, to access certain areas more easily.


This was a combined effort with GREENTONIC, Heike Frank.

Tracking your body in VR

A new passion!

VR is a new passion of mine, that I play with in my freetime, but also explore as a developer and tech enthusiast.

As video quality has evolved a lot in the past 2 years, the big topic now is full body immersion.

What needs to be tracked in VR?

The following things are becoming more important:

  • Hand-Tracking: hand & fingers, touch, grab & place …
  • Eye-Tracking: left & right eye, focus …
  • Lip-Tracking: speech, facial expressions
  • Body-Tracking: arms, legs, hips …
  • Free Locomotion without boundaries
  • Smell & Taste-Tracking
  • Brain & Neural Tracking

I will use this article to collect things that are already available, diy projects, experiments and things that are in their early stages.

Hand Tracking

Hand & finger tracking is already making its way into consumer products. It is still not widely integrated, but has made big jumps the past year.

Eye Tracking

Eye tracking is not only important to make avatars more life-like, but also to track your eye focus and help to reduce processor load.

Lip Tracking

Lip tracking has made a big jump, with the new Vive Lip tracker and is important for social interactions.

Body Tracking / Tracking parts of the body

Body tracking is one of the areas, that has so many projects attached to it. There are so many neat solutions out there, that almost anyone can use it by now.

  • KinectToVR – Full-Body Tracking with your Kinect for Xbox 360, Kinect for Xbox One or PlayStation Move + Eye
  • SlimeVR – Open Source Full Body Tracking. Crowd Supply / Youtube
  • DecaMove – Hip tracking. They also offer an Android App, to do the same.

Free Locomotion Tracking

Free locomotion is one of the biggest challenges in VR right now. You can increase your playarea, but that is still limiting and requires space. Their are VR treadmills, but none of them really reproduces life-like natural movement yet. And those solutions that come close, are still out of your reach. Most of the tracking above is somehow covered and will be available soon, while real locomotion is really the hardest to solve of them all.

  • Natural Locomotion – Natural Locomotion is an application that emulates the controller thumbstick input (to use in any game), to walk, run and jump more naturally moving your arms or your feet. It includes a driver for SteamVR for this purpose.

Tools & Software

  • VirtualHere – allows USB devices to be used remotely over a network just as if they were locally connected!

Avatars

Always crucial to have the right look for yourself in VR :)

Lets get started ….

Verein 3.0 is an e-Learning platform, that is meant to assist people in the creation of new clubs in Germany. Germany has a vivid club culture, but many people are afraid to start their own, due to new legal requirements or too little knowledge of what is actually required.

Verein 3.0 offers educational videos, download and online written content to subscribers.

“Klaro [klɛro] is a simple consent management platform (CMP) and privacy tool that helps you to be transparent about the third-party applications on your website. It is designed to be extremely simple, intuitive and easy to use while allowing you to be compliant with all relevant regulations (notably GDPR and ePrivacy).”

The tool is developed by KIPROTECT and can be found on Github.

Black & White

As I integrated Klaro on a couple of websites so far, I decided to make my work a bit easier and start building some basic clean themes for it.

I have a basic white and black&white theme so far. The download includes a testdrive folder, to showcase the themes. The white theme is also used on this website ;)

I really hate those standard consent management modals, that integrate badly into the website native design.

Klaro does a good job allowing to override its core theme and makes it a bit more pleasant. We do have to live with those modals from now on ;)

The themes are Sass-based and provide easy configuration options.

Enjoy!

cubicFUSION Themes for Klaro! @ Github

Klaro! Tweaks

Klaro is still missing some things, will collect some workarounds here for you to play with.

Missing events for consent modal open / closed …

Updates: Github Discussion
– 0.7.10 also adds custom callbacks to services (onAccept, onDecline, onInit) NICE!

Used a simple MutationObserver to do some magic for now, without diving into the core Klaro code for now. I am sure they already have an event listener or watcher setup.

I designed a fresh set of business cards for Willen Logistics last year, this is a small iteration with a QR-Code on the back. The business cards feature a partial varnish on the logo and QR-Code.

I updated their different logos last year, to streamline their main corporate colors.

“Seit mehr als 50 Jahren ist die Spedition Willen ein zuverlässiger Partner ihrer Kunden im In- und Ausland. Was in den 1950er Jahren als klassischer Transportbetrieb mit eigenem Fuhrpark begann, hat sich im Laufe der letzten Jahrzehnte zu einem Unternehmen mit großem Leistungsspektrum entwickelt.

Neben der Lagerung wurde die Produktion und Vermietung von Metalltrommeln ein wichtiges Standbein. Dadurch wurden dann auch kundenindividuelle Logistikkonzepte entwickelt und logistische Dienstleistungen vermehrt angeboten.” – Löningen, Niedersachsen

What’s new / What changed ?

Admin Enhancer is the first free plugin released under the cubicFUSION brand. The plugin is still work in progress, but a tool that is already used within some of my client projects. I am using this  plugin to centralise things I love & need, when sending out a finished website or project.

NEW: DASHBOARD GUTENBERG / DASHBOARD TEMPLATES
NEW: ADMIN TOOLBAR
UPDATE: SHORTCODES

Addons included …

This version includes a new addon “GUTENBERG DASHBOARD“, that allows you to build a White-Label Admin Dashboards using the Gutenberg Editor.

It integrates with the SHORTCODES addon and allows to drop in the dashboard widgets via its own Gutenberg Block.

The Block provides settings to overwrite CSS from the admin widgets, allowing you tweak them a bit — for better visual integration. The Dashboard template itself can be tweaked using CSS and Sass via SCSS now 😉

I am also releasing the first integration of the “ADMIN TOOLBAR” addon, which allows you to tweak some of the admin toolbar and footer options (Hide WP Logo, Hide Toolbar on Frontend, Hide Menu Items ..)

Already working on 0.3 … ENJOY!

vibronet® is a passion project of mine, as the company belongs to my family. My sister, Sylvia, runs the company together with my parents.

The core website had not been updated for the past 8 years. It was really time for a complete rewrite and redesign :)

Ii does not only feel like a quantum jump, it actually was one technology-wise ;)

The website offers complete access to the current product portfolio in 3 languages (English, French, German).

All has been done in-house, with a complete cleanup of all product details.

We have some nice additional updates planned for the future!

vibronet® stands for innovative high quality products for food and feed made in Germany.

With its patented vibration damping system and complementary online control systems, vibronet® has been a pioneer in the field of research and advanced technologies for dramatically reduced temper times and simplified production processes since 1992.

Based in the heart Germany, the vibronet® name stands for competence and product diversity made for millers and cereal processors all around the world.”
