We wanted to play around with Estimote proximity beacons, namely, doing a physical world quest where a person would use a smartphone to connect to beacons at a specific location and then proceed to the next riddle/level.
What it does
The app gives you a hint to the next location, where you are supposed to find a solution to the current level. When you enter the correct zone where the solution is located, you receive a notification to guide you to that solution. When you find the level's solution you are being transferred to the next level.
How we built it
We used Ionic framework to build both — android and web apps.
Challenges we ran into
After about 8 hours into the hackathon, we found out that Estimote beacons would not work and we had to come up with another option. That option was android app built with Ionic.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Learned a lot about iBeacons and beacons in general. Quite fun thing!
What's next for Pinscape
Catch some sleep and polish our skills in Angular and Ionic.
