Just to be clear, the thing's not finished.
We initially came in thinking we would either use the Raspberry Pi we bought on the way here, or a voice recognition web app modeled after Jarvis from Iron Man. When we got here, however, we realized we could take advantage of some of the sweet tech provided by MLH. We chose to utilize the Pebble, an easily hackable smartwatch. We threw around ideas for a bit; I (Trey) really wanted to create a one-touch Uber app, but we eventually settled on integrating public transit information.
What it does
Our Pebble application intuitively shows the directions to the nearest bus stop, and allows them to, when they get to the stop, see when the next bus will arrive.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
CloudPebble sucked. We spent nearly two hours trying to fix some of the problems it was causing, especially those related to its GitHub integration. There was also some confusion with the Pebble documentation.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
Victoria learned to open her mind up to the possibilities. Me? Well, I learned how to suck less at coding after two hours of sleep.
What's next for Pebble Transit
Nothing! It's finished! Done! We're never touching it again! No, I'm personally interested in learning more about the possibilities of writing smartwatch apps. I'd like to optimize its usability and performance, and possibly publish it to Pebble's app store.
