NYE in NYC? Check In To Apartm.net on Foursquare The Door Unlocks

Posted in ideas, inspiration, Media, web by aldorf on December 18, 2010

Apartm.net is the location of New Years.They made it so if you check in to Apartm.net on Foursquare the door unlocks. Well, not you. they. So you can’t steal their stuff. Made possible with Foursquare’s Alpha 2.0 API, a local push notification service, an industrial web-enabled relay device, some speaker wire, and knowing about electricity.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
