Internet of Things (IoT) promise to innovate our future. The 2015 Hackaton at Microsoft Philippines HQ last month were quite promising. In which various competitor show their wildest imagination when it comes to techno innovation. 

They show a  multiple problem and challenges with current technology. Like instance the parking system on how it can be enhanced. To save energy and time. Alarm system for vehicles to achieve zero percent car theft rate. Or another tech world for the blind, gas business industry and elderly care system.

The panels were asking a lot of exciting questions. In which team of inventors defend its creation like a college thesis panel defense. Both on the side of user or beneficiaries and business usage. Microsoft, Globe Labs, Red Wizard and Azure were behind these campaign of bridging the technology with the help of the internet.  
IoT is more than just a smart phone and devices.  In some offices, home even mobile devices. Smart TVs and Chrome Cast enabled people to transmit data from internet. Wifi printer, mobile PowerPoint presentation control are the examples. See the hastags for more tech updates #AmazingMicrosoft #iothacks #globelabs #jumpsparc #redwizards 

So here's the 8 Teams that participated in the last tech competition. 
1. Poltergeist - Immersive Living Room Experience
