webinos rewards creative cross-screen apps

24.08.2012
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: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
