——

Best HomeKit App == HomeKitDemo

The super duo of Blossom Woo and Neil Schreiber hacked to configure an Accessory Data Base with a hard coded mock home that had a couple of rooms. When coupled with HomeKit simulator (HKS) we were able to “discover” the devices that were created in the HKS and assign them to our home and associate them with a specific room. Then we were able to use the app to control one of the accessories (e.g. toggle a garage door open and closed).

——

The one touch application let’s you turn on a light or vibrate a ring, bracelet or any physical action of love on or near someone close to you no matter far away life may take you.

——

Most Integrated App == The Connected LittleLibrary Project

There are currently individuals who put little libraries of their favorite literature in front of their homes.

Our vision is to modernize the lending process where there is an IoT savvy (using sensor, devices, and cloud platforms). The Little Library appliance will allow individuals to share their books and stories to create communities. We are using Gimbal (beacon), Electric Imp (wifi connectivity), and Bean — and of course it is solar powered. Imagine, walking up to one of these IoT Community Little Libraries and you scan the QR code on the front to download the app, login with Facebook and then check out a book, leave a book, share a book or donate a book.

The trio of Alan Nuchnoi, Dan Zeitman, and Param Singh built this entire hack, included the 3D models, the server code, and the IOS app 100% during iOSDevCamp.

——

Best UX/UI App == GasCap

Sponsored by Artisan

This app made entirely at iOSDevCamp 2014 by Curtiss Pope helps rental car customers calculate precise gas amounts to re-fill their rental cars to the correct level.

——

The Unicorn == Mitto

Mitto is a mobile app where users can use beacons to broadcast messages like those posts commonly found on eBay or Craigslist. A user can load a message onto the beacon and when it gets in range of another phone with the app, other users will see the message in the application and it will get saved. An example of this would be a user who has an apartment for rent. When other people who are looking for apartments (they specify a filtering tag) with the app walk by the apartment, where the beacon is located, they will get the “For Rent” message since they have the tag. This app was built entirely at iOSDevCamp 2014 by Shana Azria, Maroun Abi Ramia, Shikhar Mohan, Marlena Morshead, and Quintin Leong.

——

Best Developer Tool == Where is Jen?

Want to find out where Jen or anyone else that has been set up with a Gimbal tag is located?  Use this app.  Scott Wasserman built this entirely at iOSDevCamp 2014. He figured out a smoothing algorithm for the BT LE beacon signal to be able to tell if you are getting closer or further away from the beacon and whether you are too far away for a reliable signal.

——

Best Payment App == PayPal Cafe

Sponsored by Paypal

A POS app that marries the power of the PayPal SDK and the Gimbal SDK.  A user registered with Gimbal that has their tag on them shows up as being in the cafe in the app with picture, name, last purchase item and whether their tag is associated with a paypal account.   The user may make a purchase with Paypal or choose to associate their tag with a PayPal preauthorization.  There’s a screen with the items for sale and a one click process to authorize if the user already has an associated Paypal account.   The app locally stores the tag id and the auth code from paypal to make that happen.  Built by Scott Wasserman entirely at iOSDevCamp2014.

——

Best Game App == Scavengr

Scavengr was made enitrely at iOSDevCamp 2014 by Onno Kluyt, Giovanni Rogano, Byron Warner, Klein Lieu, Benjamin Ho, and Richard Chin. This is a variation of the scavenger hunt game. The players search a dedicated space with their iPhones trying to find the treasures which are represented by iBeacons (range ~30m). The color of their iPhone screen changes to indicate proximity to the next beacon, which has to be found in a particular order. When an iBeacon is found, the player acquires power-ups.   The first player to find all ibeacons in order wins.

The devices communicate via a mesh network, so they’re easily discoverable just by opening the app.  There’s no requirement to be on the same WIFI network with signal restrictions.  As long as a device can connect another in the mesh network, they’ll be able to send/receive data between all nodes.

——

Best Young Developer == Topple

Topple is a strategy Lego-like game where you can select blocks and build a structure. After building your structure you test it’s strength by shaking the device and you get points if the structure does not topple. Neha Jamthe built this entire app at iOSDevCamp2014.

——

Demo Sacrifice == Super Connector Watch

The legendary Demo Sacrifice was made by Eric Oesterle. The goal was for it to be a tookit that would work on the Pebble watch, Samsung watch, and potentially a future Apple watch.  Unfortunately, when the largest earthquake to hit the bay area in 25 years forced him to head home to take care of the damage before he was able to demo.

——

Best Hardware == TypeA Go Mount

Co-sponsored by: Type A Machines & Capital One

iOSDevCamp 2014: Hacking Hardware & Software

Who: 500 developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and testers
What: 3-day hackathon for iOS and related applications
When: August 22-24 2014 (Friday evening through Sunday)
Where: eBay Campus, San Jose, CA

iOSDevCamp 2013 Group Photo

Why: You can’t miss this year’s event! It is set to be the most vibrant hackathon ever thanks to three emerging forces that we refer to as the ABC’s: Atoms, Bits and Collaborators (see below).

How: Reasonable ticket prices to be offset by sponsor contributions.

This event has catalyzed the launch of award winning startups (like Getaround and Foodspotting), the formation of founder dream teams (Square), and the building of a talented and collaborative community of developers. With the help of iOS 8, the biggest Apple developer release ever, this eighth annual iOS Dev Camp is set to be take a giant leap forward into the realm where hardware overlaps with software in domains like Wearables and the larger Internet of Things.

A = Atoms
The convergence of big data, mobiles, sensors, connected devices, alternate currencies, API’s and robotics (include Apple’s new HealthKit and HomeKit initiatives) are happening right now. For a decade, the promise of an “Internet of Things” has been just over the horizon. Not anymore. We are no longer at the starting line — today, we are at the scaling line! This year, developers will be invited to build on connected devices in addition to the pure software offerings that have been focused on in the past.

B = Bits
Apple just announced new and improved capabilities and functionalities in their latest iOS release (iOS8) that will create entirely new types of applications and even industries.

C = Collaborators
The collaborative culture of contribution, sharing and openness that exists at this event has been celebrated widely and is the primary reason that we have managed to foster the formation and launch of companies worth billions of dollars over the last 8 years.

Out-of-town guests are welcome to join our inclusive event. Though projects will include both solo and team efforts, we encourage attendees to build teams of diverse expertise — business ideas, marketing, design, testing, coding, and back-end development. All attendees should be prepared to participate in the development of a project during the event. Scholarships are available to encourage diversity, and mentors are available.

“It’s one of the most pure and original hackathons. People come from all around and really just hack on something, meet new people . . . cherish the relationships that they create here . . . and go out to create huge companies. The developers we’ve met at iOSDevCamp are among the best in the world. Some of them have gone on to join our team. We’re excited to be supporting the event again this year. . . . iOSDevCamp is the best.”

Zac Bowling, Apportable engineer
has attended 106 hackathons

– Catered Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner (Saturday and Sunday)
– Open Mic for Questions
Simultaneous Events Worldwide
– Participant-led Ad Hoc Sessions
– Saturday Night Gaming
– Hackathon Contest with Prizes
– Everyone Leaves with Something

Best Social App – Or Whatever

This Open Source iPhone app allows you to match up your Facebook friends suggestions for an activity. “Or Whatever” was developed over the weekend by Daniel Richards, Jon Richards, and Gwen Richards.

Best Hardware API – CareGiver

Many of us have family members that require health care providers and care givers to assist them in engaging in a higher quality level of life. In particular, those family members with Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism and/or children utilize services where it can be challenging to manage costs and ensure a high degree of care. The initial use case came from the people receiving care need assistance remembering names and lists of things related to a specific care giver or family member. Another use case that inspired this app: A care giver billed for several hours of work after a 10 minute visit blamed the person receiving care for “not remembering a longer visit.”

This application allows the family’s primary care givers to monitor and supervise home health care and other service providers that interact with their loved one in need. It increases the accountability of the care giver by utilizing facial recognition to verify the presence of the individual during their expected hours of service. An iPhone is motor controlled to auto-track and identify all individuals that enter the view. Once identified, a list of tasks or notes relating to the person will appear on the family member’s screen. Individuals that are not recognized will have their image uploaded to Sensr.net and a notification will be sent to the family’s primary care givers.

The prototype application developed here at iOSDevCamp 2013 is focused on demonstrating two key features. A Galileo motorized base is being utilized to follow faces that are detected. Additionally, the Galileo device can be controlled remotely using another iOS device. A full suite of modules is planned for handling the needs of managing appointments, prescriptions, health & vital sign logging, patient education and emergency situations.

CareGiver was developed completely over the weekend by Dan Zeitman and Mark Hall.

Most Paranoid – CameraShy

This is an Open Source app by Daniel DeCovnick for sharing encrypted photos, an increasingly pressing need. Keep your photos private from the NSA and others who might want to snoop on your thousand words. Includes photo filters from RadiumOne, so even your silly photos can be shared privately along with your sensitive ones. No personally identifying information is sent to us unless you choose to purchase R1 filters, and the storage system is anonymous.

CameraShy uses AES256 encryption, and never saves the taken photos to your device. You choose how to get the URL to your friends. App code is open-source so you can verify we’re not doing anything shady (except its AWS keys, you can’t have those).

Most Educational – Educrest

Educrest is a creative commons-licensed interactive learning tool that inspires young kids to learn computer science. Our application offers users a customized learning experience, changing the difficulty of its lessons based on its user’s age.

Educrest is specifically designed to provide younger kids with intuitive, interactive computer science lessons. Developed completely over the weekend by Andrew Shen, Angie Wang, Gene Wang, Daniel Kim, Henry Zhang, Hugh Zhang, Maggie Wang, Wenli Bai, and Jian Zhang.

Demo Sacrifice – SelfFeed

Selfeed, (Selfie + Feed), is social selfie-sharing with a twist. This app allows users to take photos of themselves with the front-facing camera. After the photo is taken they can add effects to the photo thanks to Radium One’s Effects SDK, and share the photo to Facebook or Twitter.

SelfFeed utilizes Lambda Labs Face Recognition API to determine if and how much the user is smiling. In order to take a photo, the user must smile legitimately, meaning no frowns, or “duckfaces”.

This app failed to function as designed during the demo, but Yonatan Oren was persistent and kept his cool on stage, so the judges awarded him our special prize for brilliant failure.

Best Game – StingSong

This raucous and wacky game let’s you control a bee with vocal noises to have it visit target flowers. The crowd enjoyed this demo so much, it was given an extra full minute to demonstrate, using voices and sliding flutes.

AWARDED BEST IN SHOW

Well done Michael Hourigan and Lily Hourigan, a father-daughter team, and thanks to Apportable for sponsoring this category!

Game Runners-Up Galaxy Storm, BattleCross, GLSpiral, Hangman Challenge, MarsLander, and SplishSplash won free access to Apportable’s SDK.

Most Helpful – Shiu Ng

Every year, the organizers give out blue tickets to people who help others during the event. It can be be for any kind of assistance, especially for solving a problem. The tickets are given directly for work that is observed, or via recommendation from attendees.

This year, a volunteer from past events won Most Helpful with a total of 28 tickets. Shiu was awarded the Iron Man costume, as well as a Lightning-capable stereo speaker, and brand-new Apple Airport Extreme.

Second Most Helpful – Newton Chan

Another long-time volunteer was runner-up for Most Helpful. On site early, and working late, Newton with 25 tickets was awarded a brand-new Airport Extreme.
