Near Field Communication Hack (not an official Hacks/Hacker event, but might be of interest)

This is not an official Hacks/Hackers event, but I thought there might be some interest in our community, so am passing this along:

A "Near Field Communication Hackathon" has been scheduled for June 14-15.

It's being held at hack/reduce, 275 Third St., in Kendall Sq., Cambridge.

Here's some details:

Don’t miss AccelerateNFC’s free Hackathon. Apps must run on Android 4.1 or higher, and will need to focus on:

  • Social – Enhance, alter, and establish social interactions.
  • Gaming – Enrich games and possibly take them beyond the digital world and into the physical realm.
  • Internet of things – build bridges between the Android device and real-world objects. Leverage tools ranging from NFC tags, NFC-enabled appliances, or dedicated NFC-enabled devices built on Arduino and the Raspberry Pi minimal computing platforms, or other embedded platforms.

The AccelerateNFC Hackathon will choose a first, second and third prize winner. One winner will be selected for each one of the themes – Gaming, Social, Internet of things. Each of the three winners will then be ranked with each other to produce an overall winner, second place and a third place winner.

  • First Place: $3000
  • Second Place: $2000
  • Third Place: $1000
