Somasegar also comments:

I have been involved in the competition for all of its nine years, and each year, I am astounded by the caliber of the projects.  The creators aren’t just innovators, but busy students.  And yet, they manage to develop projects that could make a difference in the lives of many.

 

He also points to some trends in this year's entries:

  • 75% of all software design projects utilize Windows Phone 7 in new ways, such as diagnosing disease and enhancing healthcare. 

  • Half of the software design projects use Windows Azure as a way to scale and share data in their solutions.

  • Ten projects utilize Kinect.
