The Dancetrometer team have taken the $5000 grand prize for their use of the Sinch SDK, at this weekends Techcrunch Hackathon.
The Sinch developer evangelists were impressed with the Dancetrometer idea and how Sinch was used to add an additional layer to their truly social app. You can read more about their idea here and view their presentation video. We loved their mix of creativity and social interaction, with an idea that was unique among the rest.
Dancetrometer is a wearable party gadget, which can be handed out to everyone when they enter a nightclub. It has a necklace full of LED lights and connects to an app on your phone. After the event, Sinch spoke to Tim Stucka and Mario Linge who said they wanted to build something fun and creative.
We had an amazing 14 entries to the hackathon and close runners up were MapSwipe, an app to help users find people to join in their daily activities. We loved their interaction with geo-location and social messaging.
Thanks to everyone who competed and we are looking forward to seeing how your ideas developer over the coming months.
