They had a huge 97 ideas submitted to Social Innovation Camp June 2011 and the judges have chosen just six of the best to help build over one weekend, from 17th-19th June 2011 at the Informatics Ventures Forum, Edinburgh.
And here they are:
1.) invisibleRamps - a site for people with cognitive and psychological disabilities – from colour-blindness to autism – to suggest ways to make buildings, public spaces and workplaces more accessible
2.) Homeshare - A site that matches older people who have a spare room with unpaid interns who need somewhere to stay for the duration of their internships
3.) Bubble - a mobile game for tracking and encouraging social contact between people
4.) Foodini - a mobile app and website providing real-time information on local food deals
5.) Lend-a-hand - a messaging tool for carers to ask family, friends and neighbours for help with quick-and-easy every-day tasks where a little bit of brief help goes a long way
Now they’re looking for people with technical and creative talent to come and help turn these early-stage ideas into real working prototypes – all in just 48 hours.
They’re looking for developers, designers and people who understand the problems we’re trying to solve.
When: 7pm, Friday 17th June to 4pm, Sunday 19th June 2011.
