Cool Hackathon Coming Soon!

Post #: 12
The "NUI Central Kinect for Windows Hackathon 2014" sponsored by Microsoft is coming to NYC June 21/22. It sold out, but limited extra seats were just added.

Event description:
Join fellow developers, UI/UX designers, and others for a 24 hour hackathon using the new (still unreleased) Kinect v2.

If you thought the first Kinect was cool, you aint seen nothing yet! The new Kinect v2 has all new technology and a more advanced SDK, so you can build amazing projects that use gesture, body tracking, voice, and more. Games, business applications, usability software... whatever. Plus... the Redmond MS Kinect for Windows team will be on site to provide support and to check-out what you can do.

But here's what's REALLY SPECIAL: MS has agreed to debut two new technologies at this event. The first is Ripple, a special Kinect system codable in HTML5 & javascript (video). The second, are near field Kinects that essentially will go head to head with Leap Motion and beyond.

If you don't write code, don't worry. Developers, UI Designers, Interaction Architects, UX Designers, Enthusiasts, and anyone that wants to join in are all welcome.

The top prize winning team (up to 5 members) will receive new Kinect v2's (before public release) plus cash. Other winners receive cash. All participants receive an event T-shirt, tasty catered meals, tech support from the MS Kinect team, and the opportunity to make new friends and share good times.

Full details can be found here:­ Seats are limited, so don't delay. Register here NOW!
