Sara Streeter wrote in to let us know about the hackathon that Axeda (where Sara is an Innovationeer) put on for AT&T’s 2013 Developer summit. The projects were Arduino-based and sensor-enabled, and featured NFC, geotracking, emergency response, and all kinds of monitoring:

At the AT&T Developer Summit in Las Vegas just before CES 2013, nine Teams competed in an M2M Hackathon. All of the teams started out with the same software, and the same Arduino device. Teams were allowed to select from a variety of sensors provided by Axeda, and some teams even brought their own sensors from home. From 2PM Saturday to 2PM Sunday the teams worked non-stop to build the best M2M solutions possible. The top prize for the M2M Hackathon was $10,000 and the opportunity to compete with 70+ other teams for the overall prize of $30,000.

Check out Sara’s wrapup of the event on Axeda’s Developer Connection.

I'm a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I'm not tinkering, I'm probably editing a book for Maker Media.
