You must register for our in-person hackathon here:

Does anyone else think it's weird that in 2015 our devices are really smart but our apps are kind of dumb? The iPhone and iWatch provide data via accelerometer, ambient light sensor, GPS, baromoter, gyroscope, etc. and yet it's still ridiculously hard to put this data to work for us.  

In theory these sensors could enable you to develop an app that...   -Detects that you've just exited the subway (plus, you're running late!) and hails an Uber without being asked -Understands that you've entered a movie theater, automatically set your devices to silent -Knows you're travelling on business and enables quicker access to expensing all your meals -Encourages your user to pop outside for some much needed Vitamin D on a lazy Netflix day   Our SDK enables all of this. You define the real-world activities that you care about and we let you know in real time when those actions occur. This way you can focus on creating a slick user experience instead of figuring out when and where to engage your users.   This is just the start.  Come hang out with us for a weekend and let's see if we can make an awesome thing or two.

Judging Criteria

  • Innovation
    We’re all about creating the extraordinary. Think outside the box and try something that’s never been done before. The Sense360 SDK allows you to create super-smart apps. Take advantage of it.
  • Technical Implementation
    Imagine that you have a million downloads. Make sure that your app will provide a smooth experience for your million+ fans. When you have a team of 10 engineers working on this app will they understand the code that you’ve written?
  • Ambient Intelligence
    Sense360 is great for creating apps with “Ambient intelligence” so take advantage of it! The more you utilize contextual relevance (where a user is, what they’re doing, or what’s going on around them) the better!
  • Presentation
    Everyone likes something pretty. Give us something that we like to look at.
