Project Detroit, BoxingBots and Kinect at TechEd


The Coding4Fun team is packing up and heading to TechEd North America and Europe this year, and we're bringing some of our toys along for the ride.  We will also be giving a session on how to build Kinect applications with some great demos at both conferences.

imageAt TechEd North America (June 11-14), you can stop by and check out the Project Detroit Mustang, or battle against another attendee with our BoxingBots!

Project Detroit will be on the show floor Sunday through Wednesday.  Stop by and get a picture of yourself in the driver's seat and try out all the features this car has to offer.

We will be running boxing matches with the BoxingBots on Monday night during the Welcome Reception, and Tuesday through Thursday around lunchtime.  Battle against a fellow attendee after fueling up!

imageIf you're heading to TechEd Europe (June 26-29), we will only have the BoxingBots with us.  Apparently getting the car to Amsterdam is a bit tricky.  Step up to battle another attendee on Tuesday night during the Welcome Reception, or Wednesday through Friday around lunchtime.

In addition, at both conferences, we will be giving a session on how to create fantastic Kinect applications for Windows, and we'll have some very fun demos to show. Here are the details:
