Why desktop ? Desktop applications can: Use Win32/COM API.NET API Use almost any languages (C, C++, C#, etc.) Native libraries and Windows Store Applications Most of the Windows 7/XP libraries are no more available
Agenda Enable some of the Windows 8 features Sensors in desktop applications (WinRT) Improve your applications with Intel Perceptual Computing IPP/MKL Media SDK PhoneGap / Cordova
Desktop and Sensors Win32 is a complex API You need to configure the objects you manipulate Big number of lines of code Use WinRT instead of COM or Win32 In desktop applications, devices such as sensors, GPS, etc. are available through WinRT and easy to use.
