CEBIT 2014 Hackathon: Many winners and Flappy Bird 3D for smart glasses

We run the shortest hackathon I ever organised and attended – special thanks to my co-organisers Friedger Müffke, Heinrich Seeger and Boris Jebsen who made this a very cool event for all participants. Although we limited boarding and development time to 6 hours only – all developer teams accepted this time-boxed challenge. They jump started their development stack and everbody built a functional app for each hardware. We used Epson BT-200 smart glasses, Udoo boards, Asandoo BLE beacons and Lemonboards.  KUDOS TO YOU ALL !  

hackthon winners

It was very hard to judge but the biggest hackathon hack for me is the working Flappy Bird clone. You can now play 3D Flappy Bird as augmented reality smart glass app. The Android App runs on the EPSON moverio BT-200 and uses metaio and the orginal Flappy Bird game look and feel but is enhanced and does not only but 2d but 3D ! But take a short look yourself at the video. It runs fluid on the moverio. The recorded game play video was beamed during the jury session from a connected laptop to the moverio. The game play background is the players own vision through the moverio glasses.
