Lenovo and Devpost just launched the Multi-Touch Multi-Hack, an online hackathon to build interactive apps with Lenovo’s multi-user, multi-touch Aura interface. There are $25,000 in cash prizes, and the winning apps get promotional placement on Lenovo's platform.
Aura lets people use 10 fingers at once to interact with a desktop or tablet touchscreen, and allows multiple people to interact simultaneously on the same device — opening up the possibilities for collaborative computing using natural hand gestures.
Coders have until June 14 to build a Windows app with 10-finger touch that creates a new educational or entertainment experience on the Lenovo YOGA Home devices. The grand prize winner gets $10K, and all winners receive a Lenovo YOGA PC or tablet.
Full rules and registration are @multitouch.devpost.com.
