webinos rewards creative cross-screen apps

Cool apps and cool prizes: the European research project webinos is holding a competition for cross-device applications. The best proposals will proceed to the finals in Athens.

Using a smart phone to zap through the television channels or using a tablet PC to configure the car system – the webinos technology allows for cross-screen services, i.e. web apps that can be used by devices to jointly access media, data, and functions safely.

With the new developer platform, the international webinos project offers free access to the necessary tools. Particularly creative apps will now be rewarded: the webinos consortium is holding a developer competition. The best entries will have the chance to receive great publicity, meet the webinos partners & win “cross-screen prizes”: from Android-on-a-USB-stick to state-of-the-art smart phones and tablets.

Event with international experts

A webinos jury of domain experts will select up to ten best ideas and the announcement of the finalists is scheduled for October 8th. The finalists will get the chance to present their apps in the next Mobile Monday Athens “Cross-screen apps” themed event which is scheduled for October 22nd. The winners will be voted by the audience. The precondition for participating to the competition is that the apps are using the webinos platform and APIs and integrate functionality of more than one devices – i.e. that the apps are cross-screen.

About webinos
webinos (Secure Web Operating System Application Environment) will deliver a platform for web applications across mobile, PC, home media (TV) and in-car devices. The project receives ten million Euros co-funding, under the EU FP7 ICT Programme, No 257103, and will run for three years starting in September 2010. webinos has been initiated by a research consortium with the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS at the helm. More than 30 partners are represented within the consortium.

Im Focus: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...
