Mashups using the same API (6)
Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, once said, "Now, you're either on the bus or off the bus." You may no longer be on the bus... but wouldn't it be nice to know that your child was? Seventh grader S. Arjun from Velammal Vidyashram, Surapet in Chennai, India, is definitely on it, having won the MIT App Inventor contest in the K-8 division, for his Ez School Bus Locator.
There is something to be said for simplicity, especially when it comes to applications that leverage web APIs for mobile devices. Enter Sparrow, an application for the iPhone, that serves as a good example of how a few web APIs can be elegantly implemented for use on a mobile device.
BikeSpike created a handy piece of hardware that easily affixes to any bicycle frame. The device contains a GPS device that can certainly track your mileage or help plan a route; but let's face it, your smartphone can do that much while sitting in your pocket (or underneath your biking tights). BikeSpike's mission goes beyond a simple GPS. BikeSpike offers automatic crash and tamper protection. BikeSpike aims to help users when they are unable to actually ride the bike. To spark further innovation around its hardware, BikeSpike provides an open API targeted at the developer community.
