Hi,

I am wondering if Microsoft with Kinect can take part.

:-)



http://www.eesc.europa.eu/design/about.html


I did not read all, here are the most important parts:

Entry Fees: None
Deadline 30 May 2011


THE PRODUCT SHOULD
-- make a strong 'design thinking' statement in terms of (ageing)
user-centred design and ageless
design codes (design for all principles) - e.g. in the following sectors:
mobility, domestic appliances,
health & prevention, ICT, entertainment. ;
-- have a high interactive (including recreational) communication potential.


TECHNI CAL REQUIR EMENTS
The final jury will admit prototypes only. EESC therefore advises
participants to only submit projects at a
semi-final or final phase of prototyping.
-- design should be developed with respect to eco-friendly principles
(durability, lifecycle assessment and
recyclability, energy saving, non toxic materials,.);
-- the design product should include packaging;
-- the design product should be user-friendly and allow for frequent
every-day use;
-- the design product should be easily transportable, portable or wearable:
ergonomic, light and small
sized (the total size - including packaging - should not exceed 30 x 30 x 30
cm);
-- the object is to be manufactured in the EU, in accordance with
sustainable production criteria
(materials, processes, packaging);


Best regards,
Sandra
