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: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
