indoo.rs and iBeacon partner Beaconinside are organizing a Hackathon dedicated to indoor location for anyone intrested in the topic. The Hackathon will take place in Berlin, on 14 -15 November, as part of WhereCamp Berlin.

interactive tour guides. real-time heatmaps. indoor navigation for visually impaired. location-aware home and IoT solutions. proximity beacon interactions. real-time location sharing. indoor gamification. contextual user experiences.

just to name a few of the ideas that come to mind when talking about indoor localization. namely this topic is becoming very popular these days but at the same time just a few of its applications are being discussed, not to mention developed and deployed.

The Hackathon is dedicated to one day spontaneous indoor and iBeacon hacks. All you need to do is just to open up your imagination and think of the immense opportunities indoor location and iBeacons could offer to our society. how we could connect physical and digital worlds in a playful, useful and innovative way to benefit consumers, venue owners, event organizers, researchers, kids, parents, old people,… etc. etc.

The main idea is having a fun day hackaching indoor location.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided as well as lots of caffeine. And of course a few rewarding pints of beer at the end of the day!
