It's been a very exciting couple of months at the QMIC. A highlight in June was our Bizspark Kinect Start-Up Weekend. This was a 3 day intensive start-up weekend focused on building Kinect Applications. The Winning Team was Team EyeKare who presented an application solution for the elderly, to monitor a fall and activate an emergency process. The demo blew us away! So congratulations on such an innovative solution. In the words of Carlos from Team EyeKare:


“The Bizspark Kinect Start-Up Weekend was a fulfilling experience, from idea to product development and business viability with great mentoring from experienced technical and business professionals.”

 As head into July we have a great program of activities to get involved in:
