Projects solving this challenge

Headmounted camera livestream

A modification to the Android Camera HAL allows the GoCoder SDK to access an external USB camera and livestream it. The Wowza Streaming Engine is the signalling server. Multiple Android devices can view the WebRTC stream from it. (If the UBS camera was a 360 like the Ricoh Theta, it can enable each WebRTC peer connection to have an independent view via Google Cardboard.)

Peaceably Assemble

Peaceably Assemble will be an app to help community organizers. The app will allow users to find protests near them, to track their locations during protests, alert others to hazards, and to document the event.


Creating an App for students which will help them communicate via chat or live streaming video. May include live task management function to allow users to create a list of tasks and when task is complete "X" task out.


ZAMHack is an integrated, fully mobile notification and monitoring system that allows neighborhood watch, security teams, or roving journalists to keep tabs on local events. Sensors on a camera or security system trigger a notification to an iPhone via Zang SMS services. The user can then click on the message to view a live stream, provided by Wowza, of the area. They can evaluate the situation and send a message via the built-in text field to alert other people or a customized bot.
