Microsoft KIN Spot control with Silverlight 4


As all of you are aware Microsoft recently launched two phones: KIN ONE and KIN TWO.

Microsoft Kin

Microsoft KIN

You can see them in action here

I really liked the idea that a single spot can do all that magic stuff. So I thought: “Hey, I should make one for myself”.

For creating it I used this YouTube video as inspiration.

The tools used were JRuler for pixel dimensions of the control and Pixie for the colours.

The control is a tweaked ToggleButton which when pressed opens the content popup (work in progress).

It’s fairly basic but proves the concept well. Stay tuned for updates πŸ˜‰

You can see the V0 result here:

And the V1 result here:

Edit: changed Kin to KIN based on Dan Fernandez post . Thanks Dan πŸ˜‰

Update: added drop shadow effect and drag and drop images onto spot basic functionality πŸ˜‰

Source code V1: here
