With the release of the Windows SideShow Managed API SDK and the Windows SideShow for Windows Mobile Developer Preview, the Windows SideShow Team is encouraging developers to write some great gadgets by partnering up with NVIDIA to sponsor a gadget-writing contest. All finalists will get a trip to San Jose, CA in August for NVISION 2008 and one grand prize winner will receive a Dell XPS 420 SideShow-enabled desktop PC.
If you haven’t already heard, Windows SideShow is a new technology that lets Microsoft Windows send data to devices that could include, but aren’t limited to, mobile phones, digital picture frames, displays embedded in keyboards, front-panel computer displays, and displays attached to a laptop. Think you have a great idea for a gadget? Study up and get to work - the contest ends July 18, 2008.
