Embedded World 2015 Day 2: Storyboard Suite GUIs are everywhere

Day 2 kept us busy in the booth with a lot of people coming to check out the GUI software demos on our partner’s hardware and Storyboard Suite demos.

I managed to get out of the booth a few times to visit some partners, and while traveling around the 5 exhibition floors I felt like I was playing a game of Where’s Waldo?, Crank Edition. Storyboard Suite demos were everywhere! I don’t know if I found them all, but here are some of the companies showcasing Storyboard Suite UIs using GUI software.

Check out the Crank Storyboard medical demo in the following booths:

  • Freescale booth (4A-220)
  • Keith & Koep (4-241)
  • Microsoft (4-240)
  • Green Hills Software (4-325)

Embedded World Day 1 recap – The GUI of Things

Just a quick update from Day 1 at Embedded World 2015 – more of a photo blog today. Pictures are more fun anyway. (As the Crank writer, it pains me to write that.)

The buzz at the show is all around the Internet of Things, or the IoT. We were spreading the word of Crank Storyboard Suite being the GUI of Things, because the end nodes of the IoT ecosystem often require devices with interfaces. The GoT just might catch on. The GUIot perhaps?

Storyboard Suite UI demos at embedded world 2015

Events_Embedded_World_2015

We’ve been gearing up for embedded world, February 24-26, and the biggest challenge we have right now is getting the mountain of demos we’ve been preparing boxed and ready to ship to Nuremberg. We are bringing more hardware to embedded world 2015 than we ever have before, which gives us more opportunities to showcase applications built with Storyboard Suite.

In addition to the Storyboard demos we are bringing to embedded world, we will also be showcasing the newest features and enhancements in our next release of Storyboard Suite, which is just around the corner! You’ll want to stop by our booth to test drive the latest and greatest.

We’ve been putting in a lot of development hours to ensure Storyboard users don’t have to. We’ve focused heavily on streamlining the design experience and supporting collaborative team development. Enhancements include multiple application design file support, model comparison and merge streamlining, improved capabilities for editing properties in Storyboard Designer, support for 9-patch images, Lua Editor updates to increase productivity and make debugging easier, relaxed naming conventions for elements in Storyboard Designer, support for scrolling layers and circles and arc render extensions, and more!
