Norwegian MVP Develops Multi-Touch App For Microsoft Surface


Silverlight MVP Einar Ingebrigsten (Bouvet) was approached by Microsoft Norway to work on a project for NRK - the Norwegian broadcasting company. The project was to design and build a multi-touch application that would be used to launch a new game show called, 'De Ukjente' translated as The Unknown.

Within six weeks, Einar had created three applications. The first would be used for two Surface tables in the studio, used by the contestants. The second application was used by the game show and third would be used to administer the gameplay interaction between the contestants.

'De Ukjente' airs each Saturday, and the first episode is available to view here. Einar’s app running on Surface can be seen here.
