  • I’m ralph barbagallo, co-founder of MeatSpace, a long with tech wizard MikaihllYurasovWe’re building smart bracelets to help conference organizers encourage professional networking by gamifying social interaction.
  • I go to a lot of conferences. And the problem with most of them is you spend too much time watching presentations and not enough time meeting and networking with others.Execution is important, but business is about relationships. And valuable relationships can be built if people would just talk to each other.Yet, especially for nerdy engineers, striking up conversations with random strangers can be intimidating.
  • MeatSpace is wearable Audrino device linked to a mobile app that uses Gimbal to notify the user someone who he hasn’t met is nearby. Players then tap bands to register a connection. The tap is sent to a server via ElectricImp using AMX’s API, and the user’s number of taps is shown on the bracelet.The app logs the contact info of people he has met.
  • Everyone at a conference gets a MeatSpace band and is assigned to a team: in the case of this hackathon: engineers, business, and design.When a player touches bands with someone they HAVEN’T met on another team, both teams score points.The objective of the game is for your team to have the most points.This encourages attendees to seek out people outside of their social group and expand their network.
  • Conferences are a $150b business annually.And they are expensive to run! Which is why organizers get sponsors to pay for things like lunches, etc.In this case, we sell the bands to conferences and charge a fee for the service. Organizers get sponsors to pay, an the sponsors logo appears on the band and leaderboard.
