Perceptual Computing Workshop #1

Hi everyone,

This is the first workshop of a series of Perceptual Computing trainings, designed to get you started with the PerC SDK, answer your questions and help you prepare for the Hacknight we'll have in June.

Get trained and create innovative applications using close-range hand and finger tracking, speech recognition, face analysis, and augmented reality. Compete with other talented developers for a chance to win one of the Hacknight Prizes:
$3k Grand Prize
$1k Most Innovative
$1k Best User Experience

Bear in mind, that in order to keep a better track of those who will attend, we're asking you to register on eventbrite.

THE SPECS
If you have an idea for a great app, bring it to the workshop - we'll review and help you submit it to the ongoing Perceptual Computing Challenge for a chance to win $100k. Deadline for submitting to the Challenge ends June 17th, so this is your chance to get the skills and training you need to win.

We'll provide the following:
- Hardware support, i.e.Creative* Interactive Gesture Camera Kit, PC's, etc.
- Engineering support
- Food and beverages
- Support and Encouragement!

Note: you must regsiter and attend at least one of the workshops to be able to compete in the June hackathon.

    Just stumbled upon Bob Duffy's blog post on the PerC Ultimate Coder Challenge that ended in April and thought I'd share this video with you http://youtu.be/x4v-ZkKjcWE - great stuff and Lee Lamber is quite entertaining.
    The full post with the winners is here http://intel.ly/14muSiS
