This May, some of the most creative web developers out there pushed the limits of getUserMedia in our May Dev Derby contest. After sorting through the entries, our four expert judges–James Padolsey, Janet Swisher, Maire Reavy, and Randell Jesup–decided on three winners and two runners-up.
Not a contestant? There are other reasons to be excited. Most importantly, all of these demos are completely open-source, making them wonderful lessons in the exciting things you can do with getUserMedia today.

- webRTC.io by newcomer dennismartensson
- Uncle Mike by 3D lover Po-Jui (Ray) Chen
- HeadBoxing by newcomer dogcalas
- Photobooth by sophomore tleunen
To call these entries mind-blowing would be an understatement. I would say they left me speechless, but quite the opposite was true–I found myself sharing them with everyone I could. Naming just a few winners was especially difficult this month, so please join me in congratulating all of our competitors for making the web so much more exciting than it was just a couple of months ago.
Want to get a head start on an upcoming Derby? We are accepting demos related to the File API in our ongoing July contest. Head over to the Dev Derby to get started.
