    Will the video interviews shot at BUILD w/ the Hackathon winners be posted online, too? Thanks!

    It was online yesterday when the streaming was hooked in (using "jump to x:yy minute mark"), but now they are processing it as individual videos. They'll probably have it ready in a few days.

    @Mike Smith: You can see a Vine of the app in action here

    This is what you are seeing:

    A Netduino Plus 2 receives a pressure sensor measurement from a punch or fist slam. It samples that punch at 10 millisecond intervals during the punch and sends that data over Bluetooth to the Windows Phone app

    In the Windows Phone app the punch gets displayed in the UI within a Telerik RadGauge control to smoothly show the current hit. In the second panorama item, a RadDataBoundListBox shows the individual pressure values that were sampled.

    After a punch has been successfully captured, the Windows Phone app sends that data up to Azure using Azure Mobile Services. Using Live authentication we can store the punch values alongside the puncher's name, thus creating a leader board.

    Lastly, we have a Windows 8 client (WinRT) that displays the leaderboard next to a Telerik RadChart for Windows 8. The chart plots out all the 10 millisecond sampled readings which usually create a nice curve (low - high - low).

    That's what you're seeing in the Vine video  Big Smile

    Thank you Clint, Microsoft, and all the helpful people!  Can't wait to do it again.  Everyone was so down to earth and approachable.  As a participant, you knew what you knew, and if you needed help, it was cool.  There wasn't any "seriously, you don't know this" mentality.  This was a great environment to foster creativity.  I would almost say I learned more here than in the sessions.  See you next year.
