Hoiio Wins in NTU Ventures’ National Hackathon

December 19, 2011

Over 48 hours, 20 teams participated in 48hacks, a national hackathon organized by NTU Ventures.

Hoiio took part, and I am proud to announce we have emerged Top 5!

We created Hoiio Wave, a device to keep drivers safe on the road. Here is an awesome 3min video showing how Hoiio Wave works.

In this hackathon, there are 2 requirements – developers have to use Arduino and Mindwave.

We added 1 more requirement for ourselves, that is to use our very own Hoiio APIs :) In the hack, call back API is used to make a call to the spouse of the driver, while IVR API is used for anyone to call a number and find out the driver’s current attention level.

This hack also demonstrated that our RESTful API can be programmed in any environment. For this hack, the Arduino WIFI host shield is the actual hardware calling our RESTful API.
