I attended my first hackathon in Berlin a few weeks back. This was a great experience in collaboration from multiple disciplines. By bringing together a designer, a maker, a strategist and a software developer we were able to build an idea into a concept and working prototype for potential projects being worked on today. The topic of this hackathon was the internet of things, which is the combination of our physical and digital worlds, so that we may access the full potential of technologies. In less than two days, we worked and fought and created producing:

   Everyday, people commute back and forth from home to work. What stands out to me is that I can only remember the times when it did not go smoothly. Living and traveling in a bigger city can produce challenges, upsets, and detours. While sometimes it could be for the best, a simple guidance could prove to cure/avoid such unpleasant feelings about the construction site blocking your bike path, or a cancelled train due to a strike, or possibly a less than peaceful environment.  Introducing the newest form of travel. ReRoute, the happiest way to get around. A sensory guidance system that has your personality.  Aided by your fellow ReRouters, a real time data-scape is produced in our cloud  that gives our customers the 'least resistive' path to your destination. By simply creating your happiest route personality profile you can avoid obstacles that may be slow you down or add stress to your life. Maybe you'd rather go through a park today??   Already, transit lines continue to collect data, however, on your special device, you can track your routes, create presets for later use, store favorite routes and even share routes with friends. A simple clip or key-chain holds the ticket to complete happiness (not included in starter kit). This device is the key to ReRoute. The network created by the user group gathers physical data from their routes, measuring speed, temperature, pollution, noise level, time, humidity in the first models. It is then through our smart engine, developed results will form your happiest experience always adapting to the conditions of the world we live in.  When a disturbance occurs within your journey, ReRoute will immediately inform you as well as give you relief options. Other than that, ReRoute will take care of everything else on its own! As a plugin for Google maps, you will manage your routes and rate your experiences, getting updates throughout your day. The free app and starter kit will allow you start the route to happiness.  v1  Stay tuned World.
