I’m attending the AngelHack Mobile App Hackathon this weekend in Austin, TX.
It is hosted at Capital Factory – a start-up incubator with 50,000 square feet of amazing work space.
I get about 24 hours to turn an idea into an app, some of the ones I’m looking at are…
- ghost net – an encrypted peer to peer communications layer that lets users exchange messages/pictures between smartphones without using the internet or any other means detectable by totalitarian governments (Egypt, or NSA)
- Arduino Bridge – software to link an iPhone as a sensor platform the the DIY chips and maker projects that use the Adruino
- iDead – live action zombie game based on location of your iPhone
- Crowd video processing – upload pictures of an event from all participants – stitch together into single browse-able panoramic / 3d scene
- video recognition – use open source video processing software to train your iPhone to recognize objects that walk past the camera (trigger an alert when ‘lady in red’ walks by)
- iPhone/robotic integration -use sphero or romo to link with an iPhone and do interesting things (room mapping, object manipulation, etc) and/or games
