Demos


 

Demo 1

OverAir Proximity Technologies Ltd.

OverAir specializes in Near Field Communication (NFC). Our online store offers a wide variety of high-grade NFC tags to choose from, print on, and even encode actions. Our marketing and enterprise solutions include an innovative portal to dynamically update NFCs, access analytics,  and create microsites.

 

Demo 2

Green Pixel will demo a top-down 2D pixel-art adventure game where you break things to gather resources for building better items and gadgets. It will have a few dungeons similar to SNES-era Zelda and will be released for iPad, PC, Mac and Linux. This game will be the first to use our cross-platform engine which is in early development.

 

Demo 3

Democravise is a new web app based on the premise that people make better decisions when they ask better questions. We help decision makers crowdsource better questions. We are eating the dog food and asking you to help us source the critical questions we need to ask before making our decision to open source our code.

 

Demo 4

Andrew Blackbourn will be presenting Tilt The Ball a cross-platform HTML5 puzzle game that is currently being developed for the mobile market, as well as some other examples of his hobbyist game creations.

 

Demo 5

 Hamilton Hotline, a weekend project by Andrew Gerrior (@andrewCHML) and Alex Pineda (@alexpineda77). Call the hotline ( 905-581-0686 ) and record your rant, or feel free to listen in to other callers musings and cursings. Inspired by grandmapartyhotline.com and Speakers Corner. #tellHAMONTeverything ;) Hamilton Hotline is powered by Twilio and Google App Engine.

 

Demo 6

Matt Grande (@mattgrande) will demo HamOntFire.  HamOntFire pulls data from the Hamilton Fire Service's Twitter account, @HFS_Incidents.  Matt thought it was great that HFS was providing this information, but he wanted to have a better idea where things were happening.
