With Windows 10 IoT Core, you can build devices to make a better world not just for people, but also our furry friends .

Here’s a project on how to build a Pet Recognition Door by connecting a webcam, infrared motion sensor, servo motors, and OpenCV facial recognition on a Minnowboard Max running Windows IoT Core.

This Pet Recognition Door will let your pet come and go, while keeping unwelcome critters from paying you an unexpected visit.  Are you feline ready to start creating?

The Windows Developer Day – Fall Creators Update event just happened and I was delighted to see a session on ink.

Long time readers of FranksWorld.com know that I have a soft spot for digital ink and the tablet form factor and that has not changed.

So, watch the video below and start adding ink support to your apps. Smile

The Windows Ink platform, together with a pen device, provides a natural way to create digital handwritten notes, drawings, and annotations. The platform supports capturing digitizer input as ink data, generating ink data, managing ink data, rendering ink data as ink strokes on the output device, and converting ink to text through handwriting recognition.

Sha and Xiao will dive into Shape, Text, and layout recognition along with talk about the Ink canvas and toolbar!
