Maybe its just me but those apps seem pretty awful.... I guess thats why the announced prizes were scaled back.
A list of them is here. You can click on "Contest" in the menu bar to go to the home page of the contest.
I agree. I wasn't overwhelmed by them either. You see cooler software around here everyday.
Do you think it was partially the environment they were programming to?
Have to agree, Simon get's second prize?
Actually that brings up a point, we don't have a Simon plugin for RR or CF yet. Hmmmm.
It wasn't widely publicized and given VWs many other attempts at in car infotainment systems theres not a lot of confidence this will ever amount to anything.
Never mind that Simon isn't so engaging that it will keep anyone interested while parked for longer than a red light.
Furthermore, the way the description is written, it sounds like they suggest using the vehicle's control buttons for the game of Simon. So in addition to playing a simple memory game, you're turning on/off the wipers, headlamps, cruise control, hazard lights, stereo, and so on.
Either that or you're going to disable those controls for the purpose of playing a memory game.
Neither option sounds particularly smart....
2,000 Euros for that?
Very, very weak.
Porsche did buy out VW, if I'm not mistaken. So I guess I could deal with a VW for the weekend.
This did catch my attention ... took a bit to find since eye sight was being distorted by the object on the left ...
hmmm, I'll take the VW for the weekendThey could enter their direction in their smartphones and can get localized by that.
Sorry for the OT type of post
