Hack Ideas


This section is for people who don't yet have a fully formed hack idea or team. We will help you to come up with hack ideas by introducing you to some great topics, hack examples, sources of data, and technologies that can help you build your hack more easily.


We will help to get the discussion going around the hack topics below, but we would like you to participate by adding your own ideas, sources of data, and passion for the topic in order to reach our goals of seeing some really great hacks in those areas.

You will be able to demo your hack from your mobile device at the event as we will have a camera or an ELMO. You can also use an emulator.

I am thrilled with the new categorizations. I would love to learn sms related stuffs. I figured out how to send sms from web apps, But couldn't get how can my web app receive sms. Any idea?

You need a GSM modem, or turn your mobile into one. Get hold of any smart phone; you can write code to accept sms as input to an application that can then initiate REST / WS call to your web app.
