We are passioned about creation, and even more if it comes to technology. When we heard of the challenge of synchronizing a huge number of devices and making with them something big and impressive, we couldn't help accepting it. The opportunity of reaching thousands of people is something more than an academic goal, it's kind of a personal motivation.
What it does
Using a device which fits everyones's pocket, also known as smartphone, and QR codes we've created a platform powerful enough to generate an animated pattern mosaic that can be displayed by more than 100000 devices at the same time.
How we built it
Starting with a simple process such as scanning a QR code, the user downloads an easy-to-use mobile application which locates the user in the crowd. Thanks to image processing and a database in the server side, the smartphone will know what to display during the performance with a single HTTP request to avoid overloading the network. The final result is capable of attracting everyone's eyes.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
In less than 36 hours, we've designed and implemented a completely functional application, that also is user-friendly and can mean a new approach of how people enjoy their favourite sport events.
What we learned
We've learnt above all to work on deadlines, under pressure, trying our best, improving our tech skills and overpassing all the issues and troubles that we've found on the way.
What's next for Crowdify
We hope that this is only the very beggining of something big, something that not only can be very funny to use, but also make happy lots of people, just like us.
