Source code from Windows 7 and 8: WM_GESTURE , WM_TOUCH , WM_POINTER

This a good news for the developers , Microsoft share source code to make available Touch feature in Windows desktop.

This sample demonstrates how to integrate touch into an application designed for a typical keyboard/mouse paradigm. Functionality has been added for many estures, showing how to map touch interactions to typical mouse interactions along with adding new gesture-only behavior such as two-finger rotate to rotate the truck and two-finger tap to reset it. The sample uses the Windows 7 WM_GESTURE API to provide the touch support and is supported on Windows 7 and Windows 8 with and without a touch screen.

First 84 inch TV with 4k format and passive 3D viewing with SimulView

Sony has announced its first 84-inch (2.1336 meters) television featuring the new 4K resolution.

This TV will come with 4K format.That it's already in use in cinemas across the world.

It's the first time when Sony come with features like passive 3D viewing.

The set’s price and availability date are still unknown , but as a point of price comparison at this size, only a 1080p TV like Sharp’s 90-inch LC-90LE745U costs $11,000.

Why it's good news for us? The passive 3D technology in the XBR-84X900 called SimulView and available on several game titles for the PlayStation 3.

This allows two players to use the same screen to play multiplayer games without splitting the screen.

So each player has to wear the 3D glasses so they can follow their side of the gameplay.

Project Skydive - 3D Engines

Skydive is a game developed as a student project at University of Skövde in Sweden. We are 17 students that for ten weeks together have made this game in Unreal Development Kit. The gameplay mechanics are completely physics based, i.e. the character is really flying. The mountain is super huge (actually 14000 times larger than the Unreal Tournament map dm_deck). The game features several game modes, two characters and splitscreen support for up to four players. The game is a PC game but is played played with an Xbox 360 controller.

On UDK website, we can see this:

If you are using UDK internally within your business and the application created using UDK is not distributed to a third party (i.e., someone who is not your employee or subcontractor), you are required to pay Epic an annual license fee of US$2,500 per installed UDK developer seat per year.

So what is my point.

To make something like this we can use an free and better 3D engine.

Like Ogre 3D, Irrlicht.

Read this if you don't trust in my opinion.
