HackedTheHouse – and won 2nd Price!

2015 March 3

Last weekend I attended HackTheHouse, a 24hrs Hackathon in Berlin, organized by Relayr and BSH – all in the Name of IoT. I teamed up with Chris(ccb23), Clemens and Roby from Italy. We had a blast!

We were given a couple of BSH Home appliances, Relayr WunderBars, Arduino, RaspberryPi, Seeedstudio Grove, Nest etc. – so all the Toys a hardware hacker only could think of.

Our idea was to bring FUN the to dull, boring household tasks.  We solve this problem by gamify cleaning duties – regular household tasks are turned into a big game, you score every-time you fulfill a task, as sooner and thoroughly, as more points you get.

After 24hrs we presented a first prototype – including a dishwasher, a smart trashcan and a smart broom. The jury was amazed and we scored the 2nd price!
