The Invisible Hackathon (iOS only)

The Invisible Hackathon (iOS only)
Event on 2015-08-08 10:00:00
"Invisible Apps" are apps that live in the background, anticipating our needs based on sensor and contextual data, and do things for us before we even have to ask. But for a long time these apps were very difficult and expensive to build. Sense360 is an SDK that makes it easy to build invisible apps that can detect location, activity, and context in the background (i.e. even when the app is closed and the phone is in your pocket).  At our "Invisible Hackathon", participants will work in groups to create the coolest "invisible apps" using the Sense360 SDK.  Hackathon Details: Note: we don't own your creation.
