Inspiration

Ever been part of 50,000 fans who cheer for the same artist at a stadium concert? Adrenaline that comes from such experience is difficult to forget. With Unight, you can easily recreate the experience, with your cell phone alone.

What it does

Current centralized cheering activity requires a specific artist-designated light stick, programmed for a specific event by a single administrator. Unight allows any moderator to upload a slogan photo, and automatically distributes the image to the crowd's cellphones so that each member of the crowd becomes part of the larger image.

How we built it

Javascript, Node.js, React, AWS S3, Express, JIMP
