What Hogwarts house do you belong in? In the world of Harry Potter, when a new student entered the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, they are “sorted” by a Sorting Hat into one of four houses. The student puts the Sorting Hat on his/her head, and the Sorting Hat yells out the house to which the magical students will belong during their time at school. Follow the instructions at http://aka.ms/SortingHat to make your own Sorting Hat using this app and a witch's hat. The Sorting Hat application for Windows Phone uses an accelerometer to pick the house and text-to-speech to call out the house name. Currently, the trigger is touching a button. I built in a 3-second pause for dramatic effect, and then the Hat announces your house. For more information, code snippets, and a video demonstration, see http://aka.ms/SortingHat.
