What’s a Kinect hackathon?
The Kinect Hackathon is a free event where you’ll get the chance to go explore new ideas and the possibilities of Xbox Kinect. Whether you’re a student just starting out or an experienced developer, we’ll share tips and tricks and all-around Kinect development know-how.
The event is aimed for different types of people and is available for students, companies and individuals
- Developers will get support and the opportunity to learn Kinect development. Our Kinect mentors will help you around programming and the tools.
- Designers get a chance to explore the new possibilities of natural user interfaces.
- Innovators & business minds can see their ideas come to life on a fresh new platform. Learn about the different ways of support you can get for your new ideas, apps and startups.
The questions is: What kind of possibilities does this platform bring to you?
The hackathon challenge is different from other workshops because it’s 24-hours long and is aimed for developers, innovators, designers and business-minds.
