A look behind Windows Embedded

Sign in to queue

Description

This week the Windows Embedded group released Windows Embedded 6.0 and Scott Davis invited me over to talk about gadgets, where things are going, and why you may not have as many cables in the future. Embedded systems are quickly becoming the norm, from digital picture frames and remote controls in your living room to the GPS in your car. In coming years, our gadgets will update over the Internet, communicate with each other, notify us of state by text message, and let us use them from a distance.

Scott also brought a very cool Neonode N2 (upper right in the screenshot at left.) It's a mini cellphone with a touch screen and tactile feedback. As you gesture to navigate the menus, you get a nice thump or vibration to confirm your choice.
