We recently posted the CE 6.0 Virtual PC Binary BSP to the MSDN Code Gallery – I wanted to build something interesting using the Virtual PC BSP, so decided to build the obvious digital picture frame application with a twist.
Virtual PC supports serial input either from a physical COMx port on your development PC or using a named pipe. I decided to write a simple named pipe server application that pushes events from a USB Phidgets motion sensor (connected to my desktop PC) to the Virtual PC CE 6.0 o/s image. This would allow me to wave my hand over the motion sensor and have the images in the Virtual PC environment change. Cool (but completely useless!).
Anyhow, here’s the video.
