Windows Vista Sidebar - Introducing Gadgets
As I am watching the PDC 2005 Live Video Feed of the Keynote Address, they just got done introducing the new Build of Windows Vista - Build 5219 which we all already knew.
I want to talk about the Sidebar specifically. Microsoft has chosen to persue the Sidebar again after dropping it for a few builds in Vista.
The Sidebar is back and in full force.

Chris Capossela shows off the new Sidebar with Gadgets at PDC this morning. The image is from BetaNews' Live PDC Coverage.

The Sidebar allows developers to write what they call "mini-apps" that take advantage of the Sidebar technology built into Vista. You can write DHTML, XML and scripts to do this and have mini-apps running on the Sidebar.
These mini-apps can run in the Sidebar are you can write them as what Microsoft calls "Gadgets". It looks like these Gadgets run like Apple's Dashboard Widgets run on OS X. You can have the Gadgets run within the Sidebar or drag them out onto your desktop.
I'm so freak'in excited about this I'm going crazy and I'm not even at PDC right now!

Windows Sidebar

Microsoft's Chris Capossela took the stage during Bill Gates' Tuesday morning keynote to demo a new interim build of Windows Vista, which revives the Windows Sidebar. The Sidebar will be populated with "gadgets" and will feature an open platform for developers to create their own mini-applications. Sidebar gadgets can be dragged onto the desktop, and interact with standard Windows applications. Capossela showed off a Windows Media player gadget with advanced animation, along with standard search and RSS reader gadgets.

Windows Vista Sidebar gadgets will be made available for download at:

MS Gadget Records Everyday Movements

Microsoft Research hosts an annual Techfest at which they showcase new gadgets that may or may not go into production. Some reflect the interests of today, and some anticipate what technology developers may want in the future.

At the latest Techfest, researchers displayed a prototype of the SenseCam, a device that records images by responding to sudden movements and changes in lighting. Microsoft Corp. calls it a ‘visual diary’, worn around the neck of a user who doesn’t have to control it. It can take up to 2,000 images over 12 hours.

Researchers say that in the future SenseCam could be used to monitor medical problems by responding to other stimuli such as heart rate and skin temperature. It can also be used to document any event, like a vacation.

마이크로소프트 리서치는 매년 개최하는 기술발표회를 통해 생산에 들어갈 것인지는 아직 결정되지 않은 새로운 제품들을 선보인다. 이들 중 일부에서는 현재 관심이 되고 있는 사항들을 볼 수 있으며, 또 기술 개발자들이 미래에 어떤 것을 원할 것인지를 예견하여 보여주는 제품들도 있다.

최근 열린 기술발표회에서, MS의 연구진들이 빛 속에서의 갑작스러운 움직임과 변화에 반응함으로써 이미지를 기록하는 장치, 센스캠(SenseCam)의 견본을 선보였다. MS사에서 ‘비주얼 다이어리’라 부르는 이 장치는 목에 두르는 것으로 착용자가 별도로 작동할 필요가 전혀 없다. 이 장치는 12시간 이상 동안 최대 2천 개의 이미지를 기록할 수 있다.

연구자들은 미래에는 심장 박동수, 체온 등과 같은 다른 자극들에 반응하는 방법으로 센스캠이 의학적인 문제들을 점검하는 데 사용될 수도 있을 것이라고 말한다. 또한 휴가와 같은 행사들을 기록하여 남기는 데도 이 장치가 사용될 수 있을 것이다.
