Imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems

Every year this is the challenge Microsoft puts out to student developers. That challenge is the Imagine Cup. Students can create software on many different platforms and tackle whatever challenges they need to help solve a problem they feel is important to help.

These projects can cover an array of issues found in the world the United Nations Millennium Development Goals is a start when looking for ideas, but is by no means the limit to what can be tackled. Last year's winners had projects that tackled helping low-vision and blind students read, all the way to preventing deforestation. I was lucky enough to test a few those last year at the US finals.

This year there are already a number of promising teams with some very cool projects. With the release of the Kinect SDK there should be some very interesting software.

Are you competing? Do you know someone that is? I'd love to give </d.i.c> more spotlight.

The US finals are coming April 20th in Redmond, WA. Stay tuned for more info

I'm in the process of forming a team now to participate in the team events. I'm especially keen on the Kinect and Metro Style categories, as well as traditional software
