Hacking Results

CropHubs

Imagine you can grow your own lettuce in a fun way, experiment with it and collaborate with others to get the best out of your lettuce. CrobHubs can give you exactly this. It is a platform for domestic farmers to make growing fruits and vegetables fun and social. A small greenhouse at home gives you the opportunity to create an environment to experiment with. Using sensors and a camera can be shared with the whole community to help you. Pair ‘plant­selfies’ with sensorial data and compare them with other people’s plants so together we can generate the tastiest food!

Smell of Data

The sense of smell has helped early humans to survive. But since our hunting and gathering has moved to the digital environment our noses can’t warn us anymore for the lurking dangers of the online wilderness. The Smell of Data will become a new smell that instinctively warns internet users in case of data leaks by releasing a warning signal when personal data are at stake.
The Smell of Data is a project in which science, technology and design meet. During the Science Hack Day we built our very first working prototype. It consists of a piece of software and modified scent vaporisers. It starts puffing and blowing smell when the user visits a website via an unencrypted connection, or when the user is connected to an insecure WiFi Hotspot.

 Xboxing 

We used old tires to create an interactive game for children called Xboxing. This was developed with Arduino and S4A (educational software) that allowed developing a game that challenges the ability to give blows to the tires in a specific time. This game allows children learn to conserve the environment, they can learn programming, exercise and develop their creative skills. In the future, we will develop an economic product of boxing for children and we will give workshops for the development of programming in games for children.

Farm-It

Farm-it, the app that supports busy people growing veggies.

Growing quality food by yourself, planting and seeding your favourites without using pesticides is not easy for busy people, we want to assist and suggest them with this app.

The app is working on health quality, city pollution, manages the excess food by trading/exchange harvest and connects citizens. Farm-it is monitoring the condition in the garden, provides guidelines for sowing and planting, shows the amount of veggies and helps exchanging veggies or give away in abundance.

Living L.I.F.E

Living L.I.F.E. is a collaboration between The Living City and L.I.F.E..

The Living City is concerned about urban decay, and aims to pull the people back to the city center. L.I.F.E. is an illuminating frame that allows for making new experiences and memories. It stands for Luminous Interactive Frame Experience, but the Interactive part wasn’t there yet.

By using L.I.F.E. as an attraction, people will come to the city center again, fulfilling the goal of Living City.

During the hackathon, these teams worked on making the frame interactive. They used LEAP motion to light up different parts of the frame, and so created a game. A side of the frame lights up, and you have to quickly touch it. Then, another side of the frame will light up, which you also have to touch. You can play it alone or with several people; whoever is the quickest wins.

 

DNI

DNI, The DNA of your Identity stored in a blockchain and belongs to you: your ID, your milestones, your trades. Fully encrypted. You own it so you control it. It is us authorising companies and governments to use it. Systems will change, we will change, the economy will change; it will become our world, a new world.

We imagine a DNI blockchain in the form of an interconnected tattoo-chip-embedded system or any physical shape you want. We are the owners the blockchain infrastructure and the core data. It also enables and provides open source platforms to create personal profiles and individual dashboards. Feedforwarding of items that are important to you for decision making and sharing.

DNI will give you control of your digital Identity and the full awareness of your digital presence in the data landscape.
