  • 12. Microsoft Kinect In Education
  • 13. Some Kinect facts Before launch, online retailers (Amazon, Play, Game, etc.) had all announced that they had currently sold out of their first batch of pre order stock More than 10 millions units sold in 6 months. Fastest-selling consumer electronics device ever Microsoft Research contributed to make Kinect a reality
  • 14. What is Kinect?What does it looks like: What it really looks like:
  • 15. Beyond Hardware• Software makes magic possible
  • 16. Natural User Interfaces (NUI)Rethinking ways in which people will interact withcomputers/technologies of the futureRe-evaluating everything from their (non-) physicaldesign to the human needs and interaction modelsRevolutionize the way we think about technology andwhat it can do on our behalf
  • 17. Kinect for Window SDKhttp://www.kinectforwindows.org http://research.microsoft.com/kinectsdk/
  • 18. A new way to make inspire and stimulate learning
  • 19. .NET Gadgeteer is a new toolkit for quickly constructing, programmingand shaping new small computing devices (gadgets)
  • 20. Some HistoryMicrosoft originally built Gadgeteer as a tool for ourselves (in MicrosoftResearch) to make it faster and easier to prototype new kinds of devicesSince then, it has proven to be of interest to other researchers – but alsohobbyists and educatorsWith the help of colleagues from all across Microsoft, we are working ongetting Gadgeteer out of the lab and into the hands of others
  • 21. GoalsLow threshold Simple gadgets should be very quick to buildHigh ceiling It should also be possible to build sophisticated and complex devices
  • 22. 3 Key Components Modular Hardware
  • 23. 3 Key Components Modular Object-Oriented Hardware Programming
  • 24. 3 Key Components Modular Object-Oriented Digital Design Hardware Programming and Fabrication
  • 25. Building gadgets
  • 26. The .NET Gadgeteer HardwareAt the heart of every Gadgeteer project is a mainboard.A mainboard is made up of a programmable processor, and a number of socketsthat Gadgeteer modules can plug into.
  • 27. The .NET Gadgeteer HardwareThese are the Gadgeteer modules found in the GHI Spider StarterKit. Touchscreen Display Camera Multicolor LED Button USB Power Supply + Programming Interface Potentiometer USB Host Ethernet SD Card
  • 28. A Closer Look at the Mainboard Socket Numbers Power LED Debug LED Socket Types Reset Button
  • 29. Match socket type letters when connecting modules to the mainboard
  • 30. tConnect modules to mainboard, and connect to PC via USB.
  • 31. NET Gadgeteer let’s you engage your students with compelling projects immediately using world class tools from Microsoft that they can leverage throughout their careers.
  • 32. We want to make it easier to give shape to Gadgeteer devices by usingdigital fabrication technologiesFirst step: integration with 3D CAD modelling software (e.g. Solidworks)
  • 33. Auto-generate mounting fixtures
  • 34. Falling cost and increasing availability of 3D printers
  • 35. Digital design and rapid manufacture
