Two members from our team, Alan Shimoide (Director of Engineering) and Grant Stevens (Sales and Strategic Development) were fortunate enough to attend the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Toronto, Canada last month. This conference is held every year and brings together all of Microsoft’s partners around the globe to showcase innovative ways to use Microsoft technologies. Since we’re all about innovation here at Snibbe Interactive, we took this opportunity to demonstrate our award-winning SocialMirror Coke Kiosk and adjacent SocialShare component using the Kinect.
WPC is the only event of its kind, allowing companies from all over the world in various industries to cross paths and engage on an enterprise level. Alan and Grant rubbed elbows with top companies in advertising, education, and government as well as those in our own field. Snibbe was one of the first companies to adapt the Kinect to commercial gestural exhibits and displays last year, and is a partner and distributor for the new, more powerful, Kinect for Windows SDK. We are a member of the Kinect for Windows Advisory Council, the Technology Adoption Program (TAP) initiative, and we are developing products using Microsoft’s PixelSense technology on the Samsung SUR40.
