2012 Summer of Hacking at Nokia goes on!

Can’t stop coding? Constantly thinking about software frameworks? Have a crush on HTML5?  Then join Nokia for a summer of hacking!  With a new centralized web presence, the Nokia Location Platform offers all the latest tools and resources to help create the next big app.  

Whether you’re a student who has insight to hottest trends, a freelancer exposed to multiple facets, or a full-time developer with the experience and expertise in specific disciplines – this hackathon should be part of your summer plans. 

It’s simple – just visit and choose any of our offerings to create your app for a chance to have it profiled on our site.  The winners will receive the beautiful, amazingly fast Nokia Lumia 800, a free premium platform license for up to one year, a developer profile on our landing page and a hacking t-shirt to broadcast your talent!  We’re looking for the most thoughtful, innovative and meaningful apps from the brightest and most creative minds.

Bring your imagination (and your app) to life!

AR Goggles at WhereCamp Berlin

Recon Instruments decided to support our event in a very unique way – provide demo sessions for their latest innovation product – Augmented Reality for Goggles.

Recon Instruments is the Vancouver based company behind the world’s first Head Up Display (HUD) called MOD Live. Designed especially for skiing, the HUD provides real-time performance information to the user including speed, jump statistics, altitude, distance traveled, temperature, vertical distance traveled. It also connects via Bluetooth to smartphones so the user can see SMS, caller ID, and their music playlist without getting their phone out their pocket.

MOD Live has a navigation feature so the user can view runs, points of interest and even their buddies on the mountain. The easy-to-use user interface is navigated using a wireless remote

For those who would like to extend the experience on a mountain peak, MOD Live can be ordered here and costs 399.99 EUR.

NFC cards for WhereCamp Berlin participants

Great news for us – we have NFC cards for all our attendees.

If you don’t know what does ”NFC” mean just look on wikipedia: “Near field communication (NFC) is a set of standards for smartphones and similar devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bringing them into close proximity, usually no more than a few centimetres. Present and anticipated applications include contactless transactions, data exchange, and simplified setup of more complex communications such as Wi-Fi.”

Let’s try to find more by using them!

WhereGroup is with us at WhereCamp Berlin
