Another weekend, another hackathon. This week I went with a designer from Telstra to compete in the Mastercard Mastercoders world hackathon, in Sydney. Mastercard are producing APIs to make shopping even easier, using their Masterpass. And we intergrated that into our solution Seamless, to make shopping even easier.
We produced a hardware and software hack to detect when you take something from the shelf in a store, and it to be automatically added to your shopping cart on a mobile app. We include contextual advertising in the app based on products you have bought and specials that will interest you.
