In this show Bob Duffy talks with Intel Engineer Daniel Holmlund, where they show off a new Ivy Bridge based Windows 8 Ultrabook equipped with touch and sensor technology. Bob explains while this Ultrabook in the studio might look like your typical Ultrabook, it is very different having a touch screen loaded with Windows 8.
Daniel then walks us through four different methods for developing applications to leverage touch and sensors hardware running Windows 8 such as: native development techniques, managed code C# solutions, Metro development, and IE 10 APIs. He then demonstrates two examples that leverages Windows 7 touch and sensor APIs to show that even desktop mode applications can be created to take advantage of multi-touch, gestures, and the accelerometer.
