Mojio has created an always-on, cellular and GPS device that plugs in to newer vehicles and connects them to smartphones via a Mojio app. The app helps drivers monitor their vehicle's action and location, can delay phone calls and texts until the vehicle is in park, can communicate with others to let them know the vehicle's estimated time of arrival, diagnoses vehicle issues, and tracks trips and mileage. Mojio makes its SDK available so that other developers can develop apps using Mojio data.
Following an all night hack, a spirited game of 2 am laser tag, a voting finale in speed-geek format (think speed dating for hackers), and with the support and advice of over 15 developer evangelists from some of the leading API providers, the winners of ProgrammableWeb’s first APIcon hackathon were announced yesterday at APIcon. Winners included two security camera apps, an automated travel expenditure app for the connected car, and a machine language chat support client. Teams were given one main criteria (to use as many of the sponsored APIs as possible) and encouraged to unleash their creativity.
