Support for Windows on Intel Galileo Gen 1 and Gen 2 will end on November 30, 2015

As we continue to focus on providing a great experience for Makers with Windows 10 IoT Core, we’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue Windows support on the Galileo platform. We’ve seen some fantastic innovation with the platform, but unfortunately, it does not meet the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 10 IoT Core. Please click here to learn more.

With this effect, Microsoft ends Windows 10 support for Intel’s Galileo boards

Microsoft is recommending that developers move Windows 10 projects to the popular Raspberry Pi 2.

Here is how you move to RaspberryPi2 :

MobileFusion #Microsoft’s Mobile App to turn your phone into #3DScanner

#Microsoft Develops App to turn your phone into #3DScanner

Since most mobile devices are powerful enough to build a 3D-scanning system using only existing features, researchers dove in. They developed an algorithm to allow the camera to take multiple images that form a 3D picture—similar to how the human eye works

MobileFusion is still mostly under wraps; it will make its debut during October’s International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality in Japan.

What this system effectively allows us to do is to take something similar to a picture, but it’s a full 3D object

The program, which will eventually launch to the public, is expected to work with iOS, Android, and Windows-based devices.
