Project Hilo - Windows7/Vista desktop animation

  • Picked up a tweet from Channel9 Microsoft’s developer site on a new project looking at new and interesting ways to leverage touch based systems to give you a Microsoft Surface like experience on the PC/laptop. Fast forward to 5:30 minutes to see the actual demo. The rest is mostly about the architecture and coding
  • re-quote:
    “Project “Hilo” is a series of articles and sample applications that demonstrate how you can leverage the power of Windows 7, Visual Studio 2010 and Visual C++ to build high performance, responsive rich client applications. Hilo provides both source code and guidance that will help you design and develop compelling, touch-enabled Windows applications of your own. Join Yochay Kiriaty and James Johanson for an introduction of Project Hilo, a quick tour of its architect and design principles

    Additional information about the project can be found in the Introducing Project HILO post, and on MSDN – Hilo: Developing C++ Application for Windows 7”
