Shortly before releasing Win2D version 1, the team downed tools and spent a week writing our own apps to validate Win2D end-to-end. For better or worse, the results are available on github…
Harrydactyl: Cooper’s silly game with dinosaurs

Shawn’s Terrific Universal App for photogRaph Tweaking
This is a simple, powerful, and contrivedly acronymed Windows 10 photo editing app.
- Use a rich set of image effects to tweak your photos
- Apply effects to the whole image or just selected parts of it
- Feather selected regions for smooth transitions
Age and Gender Guesser
Use this to find out somebody’s age and gender! Simply take a photograph using your Windows 10 device’s camera, and for each person in the photograph the app will guess their age and gender and draw it above their face. It is very similar to www.how-old.net.
This is a Windows 10 application written for the Universal Windows Platform. It uses the Project Oxford API for face recognition and age/gender guessing. It uses Win2D for its graphics rendering. It makes use of the new camera video effects added to Windows 10, and the interop available between the camera and Win2D.
Rubik’s Cube Solver (work-in-progress)
Let this app solve a Rubik’s Cube for you! Hold it up to your device’s camera, and this app will analyze the colors and solve a virtual model of it on your screen.
The app is work-in-progress. Win2D and the new camera effects in Windows 10 were used to find the Rubik’s Cube in the camera feed (in realtime) and detect the colors.
SvgWin2D is a prototype of an SVG renderer for Win2D. It’s very much a work in progress, but it includes an app for comparing reference images from the SVG Test Suite with images produced by SvgWin2D as well as a simple SVG viewer. It might work for SVG images you want to draw. It probably doesn’t. But, if you’re willing to file issues with sample SVG files that don’t load correctly then that would be awesome!
