This year’s AngelHack London was thrown in the escalator and aquarium equipped Bloomberg office in the center of downtown London. Over 250 attendees created a total of 41 products by the end of the weekend.
Amidst the excitement, creativity, and inspiration of the evening, rules for a brilliant and addicting drinking game emerged. Now named AngelHack Ring of Fire, the game rules have been made available for the enjoyment of hackers everywhere.
About the winning team: Projekta, or PiProjector, the winning team joining us later this year in San Francisco for the AngelHack Accelerator program, built a system to run projected presentations through a phone via a Raspberry Pi. This solution would replace the need for dongles and hooking up projectors to laptops!
Bonus winner: In a surprising and yet unseen turn of events, the judges selected a 2nd winner, Camel Mania, for their multi-screen gaming technology. Entering into an industry that takes in about $29 billion in the US alone, this product shows real promise.
Thanks so much to our amazing London sponsors: Bloomberg, PayPal, Google, Mailjet, Tropo, Pearson, Nokia, Microsoft, Yammer, Context.io, .Me, Paymill, and our media partner TechMeetUp.
Much love for the sweet judges who chose to spend their Sunday with us: Bindi Karia, Bill Earner, John Spindler, Simon Menashy, Mark Rock, Jo Rabin, Julia Shalet, Manfred Bortenschlager, Kristel Viidik, Tim Green, Thibault Rouffineau, Ryan Kennedy.
And of course none of this could have been possible without the effort and dedication of our AngelHack London ambassadors, Dougie Surplice and Calypso Harland. You guys rock!
