BlackBerry PlayBook WebWorks Demo (VIDEO)

Following the BlackBerry Developer Day App Circus at Mobile World Congress 2011, Director of Developer Relations, Mike Kirkup, was able to give me a brief look at a BlackBerry PlayBook application developed by The Astonishing Tribe that demonstrates the power and flexibility of BlackBerry WebWorks platform.

The “aura” application shown in the video above demonstrates rich graphics and physics engine similar to TAT’s “scrapbook” demo, but was built entirely with web technologies like HTML5 and CSS. Built in a week, “aura” demonstrates how web developers can leverage the professional grade performance of the BlackBerry PlayBook platform just like Adobe AIR and native application developers.

This is a perfect example of why developers packed the BlackBerry Developer Day WebWorks bootcamp sessions yesterday. Click the link below to download the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK and start building your own BlackBerry PlayBook Application!

    LOL I cant wait to have someone build a screen saver that while the device is in your pocket it will make art using the accelerometer. You put paint in the corners etc as the device bumps around the paints mix and make art!

    Man I love this device I just can’t wait to see other peoples ideas.

    […] TweetShare Rim ha apostado muy fuerte este año en el Mobile World Congress que se está desarrollando en Barcelona desde hace un par de días. Sin duda alguna una de las sensaciones de esta feria tecnológica está siendo el BlackBerry PlayBook. Hoy tenemos la oportunidad de ver dos muy buenos vídeos, uno con la aplicación Scrapbook, diseñada por The Astonishing Tribe que fue reciéntemente adquirida por Rim.La aplicación permite a los usuarios del BlackBerry PlayBook crear divertidos y apasionantes montajes, similares a un álbum de recortes. El vídeo muestra cómo se pueden crear y manipular fotos y texto con facilidad, utilizando en la pantalla táctil hasta cuatro dedos al mismo tiempo.Ver vídeo desde tu móvil La otra aplicación es Aura, similar a Scrapbook pero que es mencionable que sólo está creada con tecnología web, es decir, HTML5 y CSS. De esta manera los desarrolladores pueden ver hasta que punto pueden alcanzar sus aplicaciones utilizando sólo tecnología web. Creo que merece la pena ver el vídeo.Ver el vídeo desde tu móvilExcelente el material que nos está llegando desde el MWC, ya tan sólo queda el día de mañana pero estoy seguro que todavía nos queda mucho por ver. ¿Qué opináis de estos vídeos?[Vía] […]
