We are proud to announce that GameBus will serve as an enabling platform on an upcoming Hackathon (19-20 March) which is sponsored by the city of Eindhoven.
The Living Data Game Challenge is a two-day event where people with technical, design, and creative backgrounds join forces to tinker new solutions through collaborative development. The goal? To create playful applications for the municipality of Eindhoven, to inspire and challenge people to become more active, aware, social and happy!
GameBus provides a platform to turn cognitive, physical and social activities into an enjoyable gaming experience. You can connect your app or wearable to the GameBus API which will take care of a gamification layer (teams, leaderboards, badges). During the hackaton, Makers will receive on-site support from the GameBus project leader.
See http://openeindhoven.nl/schedule/ for the program.

As announced on that page, Pieter Van Gorp will spend his weekend on that Hackathon to provide support to makers. Of course, it would be great to see some of you over there too. This can be to participate, or just to enjoy the vibe!
