Women Take Top Prize – Yahoo Hack Day, MP4 Playing Watch

Posted by rexdixon on October 1, 2006

The top prize at Yahoo Hack Day went to an all women’s team. What did they do? The winning project, called Blogging In Motion, combined a camera, a handbag, a pedometer and the Flickr API to create a device that takes a picture after every few steps and then automatically blogs those pictures.

The device was created by Diana Eng, Emily and Audrey. TechCrunch was still tracking down Emily and Audrey’s last names. I hope that Michael Arrington of TechCrunch will have further information on them later on.

Here is a very cool MP4 Playing Watch. Back about 5-6 years ago, I happened to have one of those wrist cam watches. I like cool watches. No prices are available currently, but if you read the article on Engadget linked above, there are a few other companies already doing this. This one is made by Shenzhen Adragon. For some reason I think that even though it seems a bit ridiculous to have that on your wrist, the company (Shenzhen Adragon) can more then send Rex Dixon one to demo and do a write up on; and that’s of course Technically Speaking.
