#Microsoft #Cortana on #RaspberryPi
Followed by the release of Windows 10 IoT Core for Raspberry Pi 2 / 3for-raspberry-pi-2-3/ Microsoft has added support for Cortana to its Windows 10 IoT Core operating system. This enabled Raspberry Pi 3 owners will be able to interact with Microsoft’s virtual assistant after installing the Creators Update for the OS. Users will be able to use Cortana on a Raspberry Pi 3 to interact with smart devices in their home and the virtual assistant can respond to the phrase, “Hey, Cortana”.

#VisualC++ for #Linux and #RaspberryPi Development
Microsoft has released new extension available that enables C++ development in Visual Studio for Linux. With this extension you can author C++ code for Linux servers, desktops and devices. You can manage your connections to these machines from within VS. VS will automatically copy and remote build your sources and can launch your application with the debugger. Our project system supports targeting specific architectures, including ARM. Read on for how to get started with our new Linux projects. Checkout Visual C++ Team Blog for step by step guide

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 : http://ms-iot.github.io/content/en-US/Faqs.htm#galileo

#Windows10 Now supports #Qualcomm’s #DragonBoard 410c
Microsoft in its official blog announced that Windows 10 will add support for DragonBoard 410c, a development board based on a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 series processor. It features advanced processing power, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, and GPS, all packed into a board the size of a credit card. Based on the 64-bit capable Snapdragon 410 processor
#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.
