Create Your World.

Come create your world the way you want it to respond. If you want your coffee to automatically start brewing when you get up in the morning, make it so. If you want your car to start when you open the garage door, you can make that too.

The challenge for this series of hackathons is to craft new ways that the processor and All In One PC can be an integral, yet critical part of the daily experience. Ideas and interactivity models range from quantified self to multi-device, multi-player gaming and beyond. While we are not asking you to create a robot of the future, there are ways of utilizing the microprocessor at home and in different settings for interesting interactivity models.

So the challenge is simple: Create an app that involves an AIO PC and mobile phones. Your solution must include both hardware components. Bonus points for eduaction related apps and sustainability apps. Create what you imagine. Create your world.
