Stunned by Sensors – Starting my Ultrabook Training

As an avid fan of all things Star Trek*, I can’t help but hear Mr. Spock’s voice when I read about all these sensors we have watching and helping us in our lives today. Unfortunately as a developer, I usually feel like the guy in the red shirt on the away party when Spock says, “Sir, sensors indicate we are clear to send Mr. Duncan into the cave”. The cave in which I am then killed by the monster that extracts all the salt from my body. The real nightmare is that I’m the guy responsible for the monster detection code.

Phase 2 of the Intel® Perceptual Computing Challenge is Now Open!

There’s nothing like a bit of friendly competition to spark developers to new heights of innovation. Beginning on May 6, coders all over the world will have the chance to forge new ground by integrating voice control, gesture control, facial recognition, and augmented reality within PC apps in Phase 2 of the Intel® Perceptual Computing Challenge.

The Ultimate Coder Has Been Named - Final Results of Ultimate Coder Challenge: Going Perceptual

For 7 weeks we've seen 7 teams hack, code, build, and rebuild apps to leverage the Intel Perceptual Computing SDK using a convertible UltrabookOur judges have taken time to review the work, have tested each and scored each of our Challenger teams.  The ink is dry, scores added, and the results are final. The Ultimate Coder awards are as follows. 

Ultimate Coder Challenge: First Thoughts from the Judges

Last week, our Challengers submitted the final version of their perceptual computing apps to the judges, and this week, it was testing time.  Our judges took on the task of putting each project through its paces, and wrote up their first thoughts on each and every one – in addition to general thoughts on the Challenge and the future of perceptual computing. Are there clear winners for our judges? Not quite yet, and the final verdict won’t be in until next week when we announce the winners on April 24. Here’s what our judges had to say after their initial testing periods:

Ultimate Coder Challenge Week 7: Now it’s The Judges’ Turn

This was the last week for our Challengers in the Ultimate Coder Contest: Going Perceptual to work on their apps and write up their last blog posting. The work for judges is only just beginning, as they receive the finished apps this week and begin the job of determining which app is the Ultimate in displaying perceptual computing technology. Here’s a recap of what our challengers and judges have been up to in Week 7:
