Microsoft today announced the launch of the Windows 7 Touch challenge. To compete in this challenge, Microsoft inviting you to leverage Windows Touch and build solutions to help people use their PC in a more natural, accessible, and interactive way.

Here're some thoughts and some examples of projects:

  • Touch-based search and data manipulation for environments where a mouse/keyboard isn’t practical.
  • Touch solution to assist in accessibility for people with physical and cognitive impairments.
  • Touch-based user interface/website to readily view public data and assist with decision making (such as crime data, traffic flow or the energy grid).
  • Touch solutions for social networking and innovative access to local connected communities and markets (such as a farming or education community).
  • Touch enabled games that teach the benefits of conservation
