IoT Hackathon

Make your oven SMS you when the food is ready. Make your refrigerator WhatsApp you when it's time to throw out expired food. Or ask the washing machine to call you up when it is done washing your clothes.

You might be wondering. These are cool things to do. But why would anyone give these devices the ability to talk at all though? Because we can!

These things are possible with today's technology. The "Internet of Things" is a revolution that's waiting to happen, and you can be at the forefront of that revolution!

All you have to do is come to SSN on Sept 9th, and build us a prototype IoT application. We will even give you some of the components but you're free to bring any additional components that you may require! Do register with a proposal though, because participation is limited to a fixed number of teams (10-15).

Prize money: ₹6000, ₹3000, ₹1500 for first, second and third place respectively.
