Ultimate Coder Challenge Week 4 – Four Minutes of Minority Report

LittlePig_01_0image006

7 teams are competing in the Ultimate Coder Challenge where showcase applications are being built for a Lenovo Yoga 13 to demonstrate the Intel Perceptual Computing hardware.

I’m involved with the judging of the Ultimate Coder event and every week you’ll find an update from me as I analyze the teams progress. This is week 4 and this week there are some great videos, interesting artwork, honesty and a ton of coding to enjoy. Some, however, are still to incorporate any use of gesture control in their apps. Do they have time?

Ultimate Coder Challenge Week 2 – Uncovering the Strengths of the Perceptual Hardware

GarySeated_0

7 teams have just finished week 2 of the Ultimate Coder Challenge, building showcase perceptual computing applications on a Lenovo Yoga 13 that will demonstrate the sort of interaction capability that could be built into a Ultrabook, and perhaps the operating system in the future.

This is week 2. The teams presented their application ideas last week and I was honestly quite surprised at the level that all the teams had set their targets. There’s on red-flag to report but apart from that – Wow!

Gesture2Launch is a touch gesture mapping application that allows you to launch applications with different gestures. It’s tidy and it seems to work very well. It’s free too!

Ultimate Coder Challenge Week 1. Perceptual Computing Stimulates Big Software Projects

Air Gestures, facial analysis, object tracking, advanced voice recognition, touch and Ultrabooks. It’s all in the Ultimate Coder Challenge where 7 teams are building showcase applications on a Lenovo Yoga 13 that will demonstrate the sort of interaction capability that could be built into a Ultrabook in the future.

I’m involved with the judging of the Ultimate Coder event and every week you’ll find an update from me as I analyse the teams progress.

This is week 1. The teams have started their journey and have all published some interesting and useful content on the subject. Will they have enough time? Have they planned for problems? Who’s going to win? I’ve dived into the projects and give my thoughts below.

Gesture Priming and the Ultimate Coder Challenge

perceptual computing image 1

On Friday we will be announcing our participation in a new Intel-sponsored competition to develop showcase applications that use gesture, tracking and voice input using the new Perceptual Computing developer hardware and SDK that Intel have developed with their partners.

In this article I want to put some thoughts forward about perceptual computing, how it can be used, some of the issues and a few ground-rules but first we need to talk about the past.
