Search and watch your favorite YouTube videos with new PixelSense code sample

Microsoft MVP Gian Paolo Santopaolo, with Software Lab, has released a code sample of VideoStream for Microsoft PixelSense. This sample application enables people to search, watch and share their favorite YouTube videos on the Samsung SUR40 with Microsoft PixelSense and other multitouch devices.

VideoStream for Microsoft PixelSense

In addition to creating this really fun app, Gian Paolo has made it available to everyone on MSDN Code Gallery -- which means that you can learn from it and use it as well. What really makes this application stand out is that it's so well designed for several people to share at the same time -- it's a truly multiuser experience.

Gian Paolo's blog, The Dark Side of Dot Net, also has a wealth of background information which goes into the application and user experience design and some detailed information for how to develop the code. This blog is really a great resource for anyone that is interested in natural user interface development.

    Very cool thanks for sharing.

    Any news about when Microsoft is going to have another update on Surface SDK? Maybe make it possible to be developed by VS 2012 on Windows 8 not necessary for Windows 8. It's just more convenience to be able to install Surface SDK on a newer Windows OS and newer Visual Studio rather than old versions.

    Thanks for the share again

    What's the current status of PixelSense? The Samsung sales people say that the SUR40 is discontinued. Is PixelSense dead?

    As almost everything that is so advanced that even the author never understand the value and the possibilities we will see done in the future, and better, from another company.

    My wife was amazed at the 2015 Apple event because now there's a pen for the iPad (pro). This frustrated me because she works in advertising and never heard of the Microsoft Surface. So I went on YouTube and showed her a video from 2008 with the Surface Table, 7 years ago! The video is awesome with the old school zune. She was amazed at the sync function and couldn't understand why there's no consumer version of the table yet.

    I showed her the Surface Pro, she said it's okay, she really wants that table. I told it's a typical microsoft move, the developer's are awesome it's the "business experts" that screw it up. Granted this is my guess on what happened.

    I'm confident this will happen to Halolens. Slow and quite.
