During one of our first hackathons, eight teams competed by creating Pavlok API integrations that allowed 3rd-party applications and sensors to trigger electric shocks or other haptic feedback.
We included some of the video presentations below along with links to the GitHub repository for those groups that shared their work publicly. Check them out!
1. A script that shocks developers when they write bad code, using uses a custom-built NPM module, also making it easier for developers to connect to the API
2. An integration that uses your phone’s position sensor to vibrate/shock if you sit for too long without standing up and moving around
Aaron Washburn, Teddy Wing, Carol Novitsky, and Sunny Chin created an integration that uses your phone’s position sensor to vibrate/shock if you sit for too long without standing up and moving around.
3. Android integration that shocks you when you open certain apps, eg., Reddit
Kevin Luo, Preston Carpenter, Atamai Tuiolosega, and Zachary Marcus created an Android app that shocks you when you open certain pages, eg., Reddit.
