Today's paper and free binary download provides another example of using the Kinect as a controller for non-Kinect applications. For example using the Kinect with Microsoft Paint...
This paper describes both the implementation of an input provider, based on the Kinect for Windows SDK v1.0 and the algorithm of hand detection. The input provider sends the coordinates to the windows driver using a clustering hand detection algorithm, which analyzes data in depth at a distance between 800 mm and 1100 mm. The driver sends the data to a virtual Human Interface Driver that translates the "touch messages"....ConclusionsThis input providers allows us to use any application (past and future) that works on touch devices.This paper has described the system and two start touch applications that demonstrates how to use the system implemented. However, the developer can use this type of software to do also different applications like for example home automation applications.The use of the TUIO protocol guarantees not only low latency but also a certain robustness because it includes redundant information to correct any lost data packets.The possibility of transmitting data over the network allows us to use the kinect without a direct connection to the PC where the final application is installed. This way the control can be distributed over multiple machines. The Kinect has made faster processing, and it has combined the use of gestures and voice control that extends the usage scenario.

With any big change to your IT infrastructure comes risk, but of course you're hoping that the rewards will out weigh those risks. In fact, you're doing more than just hoping – you're planning, strategizing, and putting your organization in a good position to mitigate those risks.
Deploying a new operating system throughout a company can be disruptive and complex because so much is dependant on that OS – the applications running on top of the OS, the drivers that allow peripherals like printers to work, to name but a few. If all goes well, the operating system should be invisible to the end user but if all doesn't go well...well, we've all been there. It sucks.
A good plan that's well executed can result in an organization having use of technology that can help achieve higher productivity, better collaboration and more opportunities for innovative ideas. This episode of Manager Tech Talk is all about putting together a good plan for Windows deployment success.
Ruth Morton and Jonathan Rozenblit and guest Dave Kawula, Senior Consultant with 1E, talk about the benefits and challenges of deploying Windows 7. They explore what tools are available and what "gotcha's" to watch out for. Plus: Ruth, Jonathan, and Dave share tales from deployments past.
Featured Guest: Dave Kawula
Dave Kawula is an MCSE and CNE with over fifteen years of experience in the IT industry. His background includes data communications networks within multi-server LAN/WAN environments. He has experience with project management, network strategic planning, network design and integration. He has led the architecture for NT, SMS/SCCM, Exchange and Internet Gateways, including managing migration paths and issues as well as implementation. He has supported a variety of network infrastructures as well as architecting and defining technical standards.

Drawbridge is a research prototype of a new form of virtualization for application sandboxing. Drawbridge combines two core technologies: First, a picoprocess, which is a process-based isolation container with a minimal kernel API surface. Second, a library OS, which is a version of Windows enlightened to run efficiently within a picoprocess. Drawbridge combines two ideas from the literature, the picoprocess and the library OS, to provide a new form of computing, which retains the benefits of secure isolation, persistent compatibility, and execution continuity, but with drastically lower resource overheads.
The Drawbridge library OS is an experimental Windows 7 library OS - a research project and proving ground for a larger concept: application virtualization and sandboxing. Drawbridge is capable of running the latest releases of major Windows applications such as Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and Internet Explorer with very little overhead compared to the traditional virtualization techniques. The experiment is going well! Now, what's going on here, exactly?
Drawbridge research team members Galen Hunt, Reuben Olinsky and Jon Howell dig into some of the details, including project rationale and OS architecture, of research project Drawbridge.

ISV Summer Campaign : Mobility Scenarios
Take advantage of this special about mobility scenarios to dive a little deeper into one of the hot topics of the moment during the summer months. We have information geared to fit in with your busy schedule. Only have 30 minutes or half a day to spare? Choose from the basics through to the best tools and resources for getting to know these important mobile scenarios like the back of your hand.Mobility scenarios is the third topic that we're diving into this summer. You can expect one last topic by mid-August on leveraging the Web.
So keep an eye on your mailbox and dive in this summer with MSDN!Explore and dive into mobility solutionsOver the last couple of years, demand for mobile and remote work solutions has been growing. This demand is being accelerated by various factors: on one hand, the technology for allowing this is commoditizing (e.g. smartphones, tablet PCs, ubiquitous Wi-Fi access); on the other hand, people are growing more and more accustomed to mobile applications, allowing them to be 'online' any time, anywhere (e.g. social media applications such as Facebook, Twitter, FourSquare, etc.); finally, as traffic density and the associated economic and social impact are continuously growing, telecommuting is becoming the norm in many organizations.
As an independent software vendor (ISV), how easy is it for your customers to accommodate remote and mobile work scenarios using your application? Does it require significant network or hardware investments (e.g. VPN infrastructure)? Does the application need a network connection all the time or do you support offline scenarios? Can you take advantage of new device form factors and user experiences, such as smartphones, tables PCs and multi-touch?
Have a look at our website and discover a handpicked choice of articles, white papers and videos explaining how you can add support for mobile work scenarios and make them a competitive advantage for you as an ISV.
