SI Camp is how Lauren Currie met Sarah Drummond – MyPolice was a project developed at the 1st SI Camp – give it a go!
We’ve spent the last 10 weeks scouring the country to find the most promising back-of-the-envelope ideas that use web and mobile-based technology to solve a social problem.
And here they are:
1.) invisibleRamps – a site for people with cognitive and psychological disabilities – from colour-blindness to autism – to suggest ways to make buildings, public spaces and workplaces more accessible
2.) Homeshare – A site that matches older people who have a spare room with unpaid interns who need somewhere to stay for the duration of their internships
3.) Bubble – a mobile game for tracking and encouraging social contact between people
4.) Foodini – a mobile app and website providing real-time information on local food deals
5.) Lend-a-hand – a messaging tool for carers to ask family, friends and neighbours for help with quick-and-easy every-day tasks where a little bit of brief help goes a long way
Now we’re looking for people with technical and creative talent to come and help turn these early-stage ideas into real working prototypes – all in just 48 hours.
We’re looking for developers, designers and people who understand the problems we’re trying to solve.
When: From 7pm, Friday 17th June to 4pm, Sunday 19th June 2011.
