What should I build?
Create a prototype (hack) of something that you believe solves a big problem. You don't need a business plan or anything silly like that, but you should be able to show the "big idea" potential of your hack. AngelHack is a launchpad for you to flush out and validate projects you've always wanted to build. Previous winners include: Appetas (http://www.appetas.com/), GiveGo (http://givego.co/), TapFame (http://www.tapfame.com/), SnapStore (http://blog.rumma.ge/post/18897267184/how-to-win-a-hackathon), ShareBrowse (http://angelhack3.hackathon.io/hacks/view/262), Kloutron (http://vimeo.com/35028538), & Blue Dragon Security (http://www.bluedragonsec.com/).

What are the rules?
All code must be FRESH. Prior to the hackathon you can create your design, wireframes, logo, and user flows. You can even build hardware. But to make things completely fair, you cannot write any code whatsoever until the hackathon starts. All code must be put together at AngelHack. You're on your honour.
