Crash Diagramming Tool
Honorable Mention
The objective of our mini hack was to develop a simple tool for police officers to use to record traffic crash incidents. We present our solution as a step up from the existing interface of paper reports and other unsatisfactory publicly available products. Unique to our solution is the fact that, not only did we understand our client's requirements, but imbibed it in our design, taking their feedback and identifying additional add-ons that would they appreciate and potentially benefit from. We use Intel's xdk combined with Mashery's TomTom API to generate a HTML5 diagramming tool that also has the capability to fetch traffic camera stills from anywhere across the country to augment the report diagram.

Doodle Chat
Honorable Mention
A cross platform application build in Intel-XDK. The application shares a html file in real time with multiple users, giving privilege of editing the file as desired. This multipurpose application is created to benefit the users who need to share data in real time and can discuss while viewing/editing a common canvas. For example, a professor can solve a problem on the canvas, and students can view the solution on their devices and have better understanding of the solution. The app is also very useful if a group of people are discussing a travel plan, or suggesting routes to each other.

dRiving Assistance
Honorable Mention
Main focus is a road map updated frequently with slowdowns and other traffic problems. I'm using TomTom's API specifically because of the traffic information. I expect that this is an application for phones and tables (and similar devices similar to TomTom's first devices). I'm planning to use the 30% of the screen not used by the map to inform and possibly advertise in a specific way. Since I'm able to track where and when the device travels, I can push content that relates specifically to the areas where the device travels most. I'm imagining that my app would be used on a phone or a tablet, but it could as well be used as part of the instrumentation of a car. In that role the driver and passengers can be "reached", but they still receive a helpful service and they are not distracted by a device that talks too much or requires too much attention.

Looper
Honorable Mention
The web is a labyrinthian and endless expanse of paths. It has certainly thrown me for many a loop. This was part of the inspiration for Looper. Looper gives people power over the loop. It's purpose is to help people tame the web through by stringing together the functionality offered by its many, many web services. It is a simple tool built for visually assembling looping chain reactions of tiny scripts that have been coded collaboratively.
