Hackathon Description

Our Founder Chimeren Peerbhai took part as an “ideas person” and product/project manager at Comcast NBCUniversal’s 24 Hour Hackathon. The team created an accessible virtual reality application for Google Cardboard that integrated multiplayer gaming and VOIP to socialize the current solitary activity of watching online.

The concept was to recreate the DVD store and cinema experience, allowing remote users to engage within a virtual environment (which they could change based upon their mood) to select and watch a film together. While the team did not win, 9 months after we presented our app to executives at the hack, Hulu launched a surprisingly similar application, which happily validated our concept idea!

WHEN: June 6-7 2015

WHERE: Comcast NBCUniversal 24 hour Hackathon at Westminster Impact Hub, London, UK
