Last weekend, 37 hackers, including Prezi employees and students from around the world, spent two days in the Prezi office to create fun, and (sometimes) useful projects using Prezi.
What the heck is a hackathon?
Our hackathon is a two-day-long event where you can work on whatever you want, if, and only if, you can convince three other people to work with you. Usually this simple rule is enough to create interesting projects.
Because we are all hackers: we are motivated to do something just because we can and because others think it can be done.
After two days, teams presented their incredible projects:
- Prezi Kinect Hack: Control your prezi using body gestures
- Prezi Wars: Use Prezi Meeting to play a third-person shooter with your friends
- WebGL Prezi: The results are in, our developers tackled creating a rough version of Prezi in WebGL!
- Prezi Usage Map: A zoomable map of prezi creations, visits, and tweets about Prezi
- Whiteboard to Prezi application: Automatically create a prezi from a photo you've taken
- Hipchat bot: Type in a command in hipchat, our HP bot will let the office know what's up; break something in Prezi, sirens and lights!
- Democratic Voting in Prezi: Make life's toughest decisions using Prezi voting
- Prezi Logo from Post-its: See the Prezi logo, made "pixel by pixel" from Post-it notes
