Intel has announced the winners …
In addition to the major prize winners, an additional award category, the Perceptual Computing Pioneer Award, was created. This category is to recognize the next batch of developers who built creative and innovative demos, which are great examples in the new field of natural user interfaces.
The Checkpoint Award recognizes developer profiles which showed Clarity of Idea, an overall grasp of Perceptual Computing and a clear understanding of Intel's SDK.
The Early Submission winners were those developers who submitted their Demos before the Early Submission deadline. These scores were drawn from the main Perceptual Computing Challenge and applied to the smaller pool of eligible Demos.
A complete list of these additional category winners can be found here: http://software.intel.com/sites/campaigns/perceptualshowcase/perceptual-computing-pioneer-awards.htm
All of these Awards are $1000 USD to each developer. The Game Agency will be contacting all the winners immediately.
Congratulations to all the winners!
