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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
