August runs always fast and the 2nd and final evaluation is approaching. 

On September 1st, 2022, reserve your calendar for our live streaming for the second evaluation where all the contributors will present their projects, and mentors and other contributors will comment.


In the meantime, we want to notice the good work of student Alejandro, next to his mentors and other contributors, who's been re-coding our never published applications on the Play Store. Those are appearing now and it's a pleasure to see them published. Look forward at the end of this GSoC for many more apps published.





21.7.2022

Midterm evaluation is almost here, and students are sending their proof of work for the global community, and soon all their code and more.

On Friday 22 at 16:00 CEST we'll have the online midterm presentation. You can watch the video here when opening.




11. 7.2002

All contributors and mentors are hard-working to reach their goals for the first evaluation that is approaching fast.

In the meantime a conference will show off one of our 2022 projects:
La Palma Volcano Eruption tracking tool
being developed by contributor Yash with mentor Iván and Andreu, will be shown at the Tenerife.gg event. Take a look at the video demo that Yash has recorded for the event.

    Mentors and wannabe contributors are having MEETs reviewing proposals, goals, and timelines:











     



    29.4.2022

    Mentors and orgs are reviewing the proposals and starting to communicate with wannabe contributors. 

    Still some late videos are arriving:

    19.4.2022

    Today is the last day for proposals at the GSoC platform.



    We want to thank the almost 40 students and contributors that have approached the Liquid Galaxy project to express interest for, and congratulate to the percentage that have finally debated with a mentor and filled up a proposal on the system. 

    We wish you all good luck!!!


    Agenda for the upcoming months:

    - Mentors will be reviewing your proposals, and possibly requesting more Meets to get some specifications and maybe changes.

    - On May 20 Accepted GSoC contributor projects will be announced, we'll not know anything till Google announces it, so please, do not contact us on this and wait for Google's announcement.

    - From May 20 till June 13, you'll get to know mentors, read documentation, get up to speed to begin working on your project projects.

    - On June 13 coding starts, unless you have agreed with your mentor and admins about a different agenda, as Google is permitting this year slight changes on this.






    14.4.2022

    Videos still coming.



    13.4.2022

    Lots more of great videos are coming, contributors are working hard to achieve his goals !


    2.4.2022

    Clarifications about methods and technologies we want to see in your proposals, according to our way of working based on the 12 years of experience on GSoC and 14 on the Liquid Galaxy project:

    - All the code and data have to be contained and executed on an Android-based 10" tablet.
    We do not want code or data being stored or executed on external servers. The reason is simple: it's so difficult and usually impossible for us to maintain this. Having a self-contained app published on the Play Store will mean that the app will run ok (till some API are deprecated, the thing that's not so usually happening)

    - If you do not own an Android tablet using the Bluestacks emulator. It's free and runs ok in a development system. Take a look at our documentation and past GSoC videos and more on how the contributors use this technology.

    - Always reuse our code !!! We're Open Source !!! Take a look at our many applications available in the stores and inspect the code from our Github. This will simplify your start with us, as techniques like how to connect the tablet to the Liquid Galaxy cluster, how to create and send KMLs and other movements instructions, how to store and handle local data on the Android tablet, etc


    28.3.2022

    New projects proposals added:

    - New Space related visualization project in collaboration with Hydra-Space, a world's first:
    "LG Space Chess"

    - New core LG project:
    "Android Application refurbishment"


    More contributors sending his videos to demonstrate proof of knowledge on the LG

    23.03.2022 

    More nice videos are coming



    19.3.2022

    As a sample and guidance for other contributors and mentor consideration, you can see here some of the videos for proof of LG knowledge are sending the wannabe contributors this year.

    To test your abilities we need some proof of knowledge and dedication, so before you have the first Meet with us you'll have to install, run and make a video of every one of these actions:

    1 - We're the Liquid Galaxy project, so you'll have to install your own LG rig, physical or virtual.
    Look at the menus of this website, identify the documentation you want to follow (last and updated from 2021) and install your rig on 3 laptops or on a computer with enough power to run 3 or 4 virtual machines (3 for the rig, one for and Android tablet for control, usually with Bluestacks)

    2 - Run at least two of our Android applications against your own rig. Browse the menus, look at the applications on the App Store and run the apps against your setup. You'll need a real 10" Android tablet (usually running Android 6 or 10), or a virtual setup. Instructions on this on the LG manuals.

    Selected videos will be shown here for collaborator interest engagement.

    3 - And last, start to write your own proposal, with one of our project Ideas (down on this page) or one that you propose to us. For this we'll provide a master project for you to fill up, but, you can start now in thinking on your project generally.

    Proposal master document (make a copy on your own drive, name it this way: "student name GSoC 2022 - project name" , and share with us the link in drive with comments permissions, we'll not review PDFs or other files)

    Devfest Menorca 17.12.21



    16.12.21 Estimated timeline for GSoC 2022: 

    Organizations will be able to apply early in the year and be published the chosen ones in early March
    Contributors (not any longer restricted to University students) will be able to apply early April


    11.11.21 BIG GSoC announcement by Google that changes everything, main 3 points are:


    Welcome Contributors

    175 or 350 hours projects

    Increased flexibility of timing for projects








    ------------ NEWS FEED END -------------------





    Here you can read our preliminary project ideas for Liquid Galaxy 2022 GSoC. 

    As last year those are divided into sections, like core libraries, pieces of code that can be reusable in other projects, and project ideas this year based on Google technologies, like Tensorflow, Android, Flutter, etc

    All have to be able to demo the Google Earth and Liquid Galaxy power as visualization tool.

    Important: those are ideas, we really want Contributors to come with his own ideas and present them to us.

    Please act according to the GSoC timeline before contacting us.



    IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION about project duration:
    Remember that for 2022 GSoC is back the 350 hours, full 3 months period, projects. Next to this are the 175 hours (3 months 4 hours dedication daily), and also the possibility to extend a bit the work window in September or June. 175 or 350 hours projects will be rewarded accordingly with the GSoC normative.

    In front of the name of each project, we note our duration estimation. Final one will be agreed between the mentor and the student.



    We are again very interested in projects that are fully developed on Android, both JAVA or Flutter (any other interest there?). Our experience and the one from our users is simply: projects developed for Android have a longer lifespan, less maintenance, and easier installation (almost zero).
    So we'll be selecting projects based on this prime idea among others.
    Think also that doing this way Contributors have more time to devote to the creativity on their projects as they can reuse (we're open source!!! and we reuse code all day long), as they don't have to develop, just copy understand, and tune, the code for basics operations such as connecting to the LG with a SSH tunnel, creating a KML, doing an orbit, etc etc

    The idea is to have the application published on our Play Store account and in the Huawei App Gallery too, before the end of the GSoC, this will be a must for all the projects !


    175h Google Earth Studio link to Liquid Galaxy
    We like a lot the Google Earth Studio tool for STEAM purposes. His ability to create very nice fly-bys videos with Google Earth is so useful and amazing.
    This project is based on past Simple CMS E.S. app, GSoC 2020 developed, but brand new and focused on the idea of capturing the situation of the camera on a LG rig and add animations in between, adapting the time and frames to obtain two different files; 
    - a E.S. compatible file to be rendered there.
    - a standard Google Earth tour to be run on a LG rig.

    Skills required/preferred: Android or Flutter, Google Earth Studio, Bash
    Possible Mentors: Ivan Josa
    Difficulty rating: MEDIUM
    Expected outcomes: an App deployed on Google's Play Store, Liquid Galaxy account, that creates E.S. files compatible with Google Earth Studio, while connecting to the Liquid Galaxy rig.






    350h SatNOGS Visualization tool for the Liquid Galaxy 
    The goal of this project is to create an app that makes it possible for people to look for a satellite and show up their orbit and projection on Earth and all the data possible from the SatNOGS database.
    Using the NORAD id from the satellite, the app will show all the data captured from a SatNOGS ground station. With this, not only the client will be given the position of the satellite, but also the contents of the signal that the ground station is able to capture. All this information is included in the SatNOGS database.
    SatNOGS is a Satellite Networked Open Ground Station. The ground stations are antennas that capture transmissions from satellites. Using this network, SatNOGS created a database with all the information captured since its creation and is open and free. This database contains information about the satellites, the data received in the communication, the protocols of transmission accepted.

    350h Real Estate Presentation for Liquid Galaxy The project is a controller in which users has access from their own cell phone or device connected to the same network as the Liquid Galaxy, and he could move the elements that are presented on the screens in front of him. The user could, for example, access a floor plan of a building under construction and click on a certain room, opening a 360 video on the LG’s screens and he could then move around and get to know the environment better. You could view a 360 image. Take guided tours of a museum with the appears and interacting using your cell phone, mouse or devices such as Space Mouse. Approaching or moving away from works of art for example.

    175h "Android Application refurbishment"

    We need some contributor to help us in finishing touches to applications that never reached the Play Store, usually due to simple stuff that the students can not modify due to last minute. Also we want all of those applications uploaded to be Huawei's App Gallery, another app store based on an Android fork that is starting to have plenty of users in Asia and the rest of the world.

    If you think you can help us contact us at liquidgalaxylab gmail com and we'll have a meet to comment.

    We really want this project to be accomplished this year, so it you have a good Android and Flutter knowledge, have used the app stores before, and want to be on our final list, apply to this project now.








    350 h "LG Space Chess"

    A Newspace related visualization project in collaboration with Hydra-Space.

    The basic idea is to use the Liquid Galaxy cluster as a handler and visualizer of a world chess game
    that will happen with people around the world and through satellite communications, a world's first !!!
    The project involves the adaptation of the chess logic, using an open application already developed like GNU Chess (https://www.gnu.org/software/chess/) and the handling of the game communications,  creating different visualizations on the LG, like the lg, like the flow of the chess commands from earth to the space and back, the board and the actual chess pieces status and so on.






    350h Satellite Space Collision prevision
    This project aims to calculate possible collisions of the objects already orbiting the Earth, based on TLE and information coming from the standard orbit databases provided by Celestrack and others.
    The idea is to calculate possible collisions and show off them on the Liquid Galaxy, with data about the involved engines (satellites or others). Data from past collisions is needed to make a predictable model.

    Skills required/preferred: Android or Flutter, Tensorflow
    Possible Mentors: Moisés Martínez
    Difficulty rating: High
    Expected outcomes: an App deployed on Google's Play Store, Liquid Galaxy account.








    350h Asteroids Retro Game for the Liquid Galaxy
    AsteroidsJS consists of a singleplayer/multiplayer and multi-screen game that looks like the old Asteroids with the Diep.io mechanics. Players will control their spaceships in a limited battlefield (the space) with their keyboard or virtual joystick (cellphone), fighting each other in a thirsty competition in order to achieve the highest score, being what most players like.

    Skills required/preferredFlutter, NodeJS, HTML, Javascript and CSS

    Possible Mentors: Victor Sanchez, Google Developer Expert in HTML5
    Difficulty rating: High
    Expected outcomes: an App deployed on Google's Play Store, Liquid Galaxy account, for the controls, and the code to play in a 5 screens lg running chromium under linux.








    350h 3D Models Visualizer
    The idea of this project is to create a viewer to display 3D models on Liquid Galaxy using the web framework THREEJS that can be controlled using an Android app developed in Flutter. Users will be able to upload, move, rotate and scale the models on Liquid Galaxy using a tablet or cellphone in a very simple and fast way.

    350h Google Earth Engine
    The project comprises a tool for visualization and creation of data related to Google Earth on a web platform developed in Vue.js, so the user chooses which device to use. It uses as a basis the Dataset and public APIs of Google Earth Engine and makes it available simply on the platform that, when selected, will show immersive in the LG system. The user can also create presentations, such as consuming an API that shows the precipitation in recent years with some text and images of his own authorship.

    Technologies to be used: KML, Python, VueJs, NodeJS














    350h Liquid Galaxy Unity This project aims to study and build the architecture to send any Unity 3D Engine WebGL scene to Liquid Galaxy Cluster. The platform will have a web service to manage the scene and a mobile app to serve as a controller to the scene.
    The web service will contain a page where we can upload a scene to be sent to the Galaxy. After the upload, the scene can be previewed in another page that will contain the preview of the scene. In the preview page, a button will be available to open the scene in full-screen mode and send it to be displayed on Galaxy screens. After sending the scene to screens we need a way to control it, so, thinking that a mobile controller app will be developed. The controller will have some basic controls like start, stop, move forward, backward, left, right, and camera rotation. The system has also to be able to send BIM information attached to a Unity design, showing up on the LG screens the many metadata available in a BIM model.
    Technologies to be used: VueJS, Flutter, and SocketIO







    175h LG Glove Controller
    The glove consists of a wearable device, which analyzes the contraction of the fingers, touch of the fingertips, and the rotation of the hand through analog sensors, transmitting the information collected through a Bluetooth, wi-fi or radio frequency module. At first, it will be used to control the visualization in Google Earth, such as zoom, rotation, inclination, altitude, and movement on the X-axis, and it can be applied to different devices and tools in the future. For example, if all fingers are contracted, the camera will be zoomed in, and when the user rotates their hand to the left, Earth will perform a similar movement.

    Technologies to be used: C++, KML








    175h LG RFID Controller
    The project consists of a board filled with RFID receivers, which will interact with markers attached to an RFID transmitter. The board will represent a specific place, such as a city, and when one of its receivers is activated, the Arduino will analyze this information and send data for that location, such as latitude, longitude, and display mode to Liquid Galaxy. Thus, in Google Earth a "fly to" will be performed to the selected location and a view can be used, such as Orbit.

    Technologies to be used: C++, KML








    350h Earth Streaming project for the Liquid Galaxy
    This project aims to share the great views of a Liquid Galaxy with people that do not have access to a system. The idea is to allow people to give instructions remotely to an actual Liquid Galaxy installation and see it live and remotely through a webcam or recorded on video.








    Agro IoT Visualization for the Liquid Galaxy
    This project wants to excel in the visualization of data in the LG captured from IoT sensors, managed and stored on Google Cloud or similar modern infrastructure, using Docker, CrateDB or MongoDB, and more.
