Panasonic Avionics had awesome APIs that can be used to hack awesome apps for inflight entertainment, news, weather, and more.
What it does
Helps you notify a party when and where your arrival time is, while still in flight. It also forecasts weather and news and allows the Airline's passengers to tweet anonymously about their in flight experience.
How we built it
Android Studio and Java, we used Panasonic's APIs
Challenges we ran into
Environment issues. We spent the first 15 hours trying to build a hello world app (Never bring a work laptop to a hackathon that has VPN and other work security stuff on it). We almost gave up. But we did not.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We finished it within a few short hours. Our UI/UX took a hit given our challenge however we managed to create a great product with less than ideal conditions.
What we learned
Never bring a work laptop to a hackathon that has VPN and other security stuff on it.
What's next for On The Fly
Make the UI/UX much better.
