Playframework 2.4.x keeps throwing “Package does not exist”

This drove me crazy and took me hours to resolve.

I kept on getting Package [name] does not exist even though I’ve set up the sbt subproject correctly with aggregate and dependsOn. IntelliJ was happy but play keep on bumming out.

It turns out that when you modify the subproject hierarchy, you would need to terminate the activator run session, and probably best to do a clean, reload and compile before kicking it back on again.

Tested on:
Play Framework 2.4.x
Java

OK Google Glass

Me in Google Glass

The office just received our shipment of Google Glass today. And it’s hard to not be excited about this piece of hardware. The direct to retina projection system, bone-conduction speakers, not forgetting all the innovation (and data!) that Google have accumulated throughout the year building their meta-services. If this piece of gear isn’t the present, I sure hope it is the future.

I’ll be posting more of my thoughts around Google Glass in the coming days as I get more experience with it.

Robo-mannequin: Innovation in high street retail/online

robo-maneguin

To me, this robotic mannequin makes alot more sense than the typical Kinect demo augmented reality mirror approach (looking at a digitized version of a piece of clothing on top your digital self).

I dont know how it scans and copy a person body shape though. Hopefully it has the potential to replicate the user’s body through a Kinect-based 3d body scanner.

RockMelt and Chrome: the Chromium browsers are actually more different than it seems

WARNING: A word of warning, this is one silly post.

So, here I am using RockMelt for the 2nd hour or something and trying out if it’s really live up to the hype. I still got Google Chrome running on the background just out of a habit. I suddenly thought, would I be able to snap in a tab from Chrome into RockMelt? They’re both sharing the same engine right? Gosh, they even look the same… they must be sharing (much) more than just the Webkit rendering engine. And the answer is …no …you can’t!
