Event Details

 

Wearable World is teaming up with American Airlines for the first wearable hack focusing on the connected traveler.  American is excited to explore new touch points with their customers and partner with developers like you to bring your technology to market.  Wearables will give travelers timely, unique data at the right time and place during their journey.  New opportunities will also be opened thanks to in-flight WiFi throughout all of American’s aircraft.  Location will be key as well and American has an aggressive beacon rollout coming to all its hub airports.

 

On June 6th and 7th, join us in San Francisco with your team and work directly with American’s development team, hardware and API partners to create the next killer wearable app/product.

 

The top teams go on to participate in the Live Round and work with American’s customers in-flight on their new Airbus A321T aircraft flying from SFO to JFK and back in July.  Upon landing, American's top customers will participate in deciding your fate.  If you come out on top you’ll get the opportunity to pitch American Airlines Technology Group and receive a incubation sponsorship with Wearable World.
