Week 2 of the Ultimate Coder Challenge is now behind us, and quite frankly, it’s amazing that we’re only at week 2 with the amount of progress that has been made: playable demos, workable frameworks, and actual renderings of 3D/perceptual computing technology in action have all been presented this week. Here’s what our challengers have been up to:
One of the use cases for tablets with Intel® Atom™ processors and Microsoft Windows 8* is low-power audio playback. This capability allows users to continue listening to music after the device enters a low-power state commonly referred to as Connected Standby. Connected Standby is an Always On Always Connected scenario implemented in Microsoft Windows and manifest through the new Intel Atom S0ix low-power states.
Connected Standby is a new feature introduced by Microsoft in Windows 8*. The use case on the tablet/mobile systems is similar to that on phones like Instant ON and Always Connected. Intel® dual-core Atom™ Z2760 (code name CloverTrail) is the first Intel platform to support Connected Standby. Interesting applications can be developed for Connected Standby to further showcase the platform capabilities like push email, multiplayer games, etc.
