What we do: We make you look cool in front of all your friends after you lost that one bet, because now you can gesture your way to the amount you need to venmo. Lose with style and grace.
What it does
Takes peer-to-peer, MyoKit, and Venmo requests and puts them all together to detect a nearby phone on the same network thats using the PayItForward app, use gestures to change the dollar amount, and double tap to submit payment.
How I built it
Used iphone peer-to-peer connectivity to find nearby venmo users. Then integrated the MyoKit, so we could recognize different hand gestures to increment and decrement amount payed. User confirmed payment by double tapping their fingers and we used the venmo api to ensure it went thought. Also blood, sweat, and tears.
Challenges I ran into
Not enough napkins to clean up the blood, sweat, and tears.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Sweated at a hackathon in this weather.
What I learned
A lot about something that isn't all that useful.
What's next for Pay It Forward
Eating a bunch more free food, and going home.
