Build Android Apps That Run Inside Your THETA

HDR2EXR by Kasper Oerlemans

OpenCV is used widely by well-established companies like Google, Microsoft, Intel. BSD-license makes it easy for businesses to utilize and modify the code. In this project, use your THETA to grab lighting information and create an HDR file.

Accelerometer and Magnetic Field (eCompass)

Use sensor data in a creative way to take pictures. Examples: animal photo trap, dog door security, commercial vehicle dash cam, party “fun” cam to take pictures of you and your friends when you jump in the air.

M5Stack (ESP32 Arduino) Sample Serial Code

Connect your THETA V to the M5Stack ESP32 Arduino with the USB port. Example code allows you to take pictures, shows QR code that links to pictures in a web browser.

Building a WebGUI

Since the RICOH THETA V does not have a screen, you can not use layouts and screen transitions like ordinary Android applications. However, you can provide a Web GUI for your plug-in by setting up a web server.

Connecting to a Messaging Service

Use the messaging API from LINE to send a message from the RICOH THETA to a mobile phone. Good for event notification. Can be adapted to any REST API messaging system.

Using TensorFlow in-Camera

Modified TensorFlow example for THETA V (Android). Object recognition, artistic style application, voice recognition, object detection.
