Any plans for Roborealm to support Windows 8 RT? Cheap ~$250 7" Windows 8 RT tablets will be hitting the market soon and would make a nice robot platform if running Roborealm. I also believe Windows RT support native C++ so maybe a Roborealm port isn't too painful.

Actually the architecture is quite different and would require a porting of the app ... not as bad as convering to a completely different platform but still a lot of work. It also seems that Windows RT is not a very popular platform and still undergoing some growing pains. We'll see how things develop in the coming year and decide on if a port would make sense.

Please feel free to post your experiences so we can use that when we evaluate RT.

Windows RT isn't popular yet but hopefully that will change when lower cost devices hit the market. I heard that future operating systems from MS will merge the Desktop OS with the Mobile OS. I also read that the OpenCV folks are working on a Windows RT port.

Looks like some of these small 8" tablets will have full blown Windows 8 instead of Windows 8 RT!
