HackJam: unscheduled presentation on 3D positioning

Tonight, we had an unscheduled visit by a French hacker who has been working the past year on reverse engineering the HTC Vive system and made a miniature version of their tracker / sensor. That system enable to follow 3d position a person or an object in a 3d space in real time.

He explained us the in and out of the project, problems faced, type of component required for the project and their specific properties.
