2017 nio Hackathon winners

Last week at nio - we set the nerds free! We armed them with the nio software platform, duct tape, and their own imagination.

The friendly competition yielded some incredible innovations from the nio team. Like an app that records your guitar notes in real time as you play. Or a punching bag that determines who hits the hardest in the office. Or nio simply letting you know if you left your oven on [and its current temperature (if you would like to check in-house nerd Double A Ron’s current stove top temp please visit: stove.aaronranard.com)].

However, the hottest hack (and hackathon winner) was an automated Nerf gun that scans the room and uses facial recognition to determine who and where to shoot.

Here are the winners explaining why and how they made it happen!
