Software Development
Samsung asked us to make a smart toy their Artik platform. We also got a request for a Korean voice-over in addition to the English voice at the very last minute. This project was fun and kept us on our feet! Spacebattles is a proof of concept for Samsung to show complex computer vision for their Artik IoT Linux SoC board.
PROCESS
Samsung wanted a marquee technology to show off their Artik embedded platform. We worked with Samsung to design an experience that would be engaging. This meant close collaboration on the content and quick pivots. We had to pivot quickly from one form factor to another due to licensing disagreements at the last minute, which meant last minute fabrication of a whole new formfactor.
RESULT
We created a space ship that performed real-time image recognition. The result was a fun little toy that a child could move around a room and have it play audio that identified either friendly or enemy ships and an accompanying SFX. This was so successful that it was
highlighted at the Korean Electronics Show.
TECHNICAL DETAIL
The technology that FS Studio implemented was a DeepNet using a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). The DeepNet was implemented as a pure CPU (no
GPU) implementation in C++ and ran in realtime at approximately 20Hz. With further optimization we believe we could have gotten an order of magnitude speed increase.

Clients and Customers First
