There is a rather interesting new addition to the ranks of the Imagine Cup competitions this year. The Kinect Fun Labs Challenge is out to get you exploring new ways to use the Kinect sensor. The nice thing about it is that at the moment all you need is the idea. The implementation can come later. They are actually giving out 100 Kinect for Windows sensors (these are the special ones that have higher resolution close up and other interesting tweaks) to the ideas they like the best, so that you can realise them and enter the next phase of the competition. Next week there is a Live Meeting all about how it works. If I was still a student, I’d be there.
