ClueCon 2014: Dangerous Demo
August 6, 2014 @ 2:00 am - 3:00 pm
Our very own founder, Ben Klang, participated again in the Dangerous Demo competition and won The Most Entertaining Demo – for his incentivized interactive language instruction service built upon an Interactive Voice Response system.
Dangerous Demo was started by Truphone’s Head of Research, James Body, to identify new and emerging technology that can eventually be deployed by Truphone or other carriers and mobile operators.
The idea behind the Dangerous Demo series of competitions really evolved from Truphone’s own history. Truphone debuted their technology in risky, challenging and unproven ways, such as making the first live, public mobile VoIP call on Nokia phones in 2005 at the VON Conference in Stockholm and then on the iPhone in 2007 at DEMO in San Diego. Today, much of the technology that debuted first as a live demonstration was at the time considered impossible, but now is possible.
James Body vetted the cream of the crop in the developer world awarding the riskiest, most entertaining and audience favorite competitors.
