Yes, it's true SHDH is an awesomely fun party, but it's also a day to hack together fun and interesting projects with friends or fellow hackers you meet at the party.  (above hack courtsey of seeifixedit)


Some interesting past projects from Silicon Valley have included:

  • verylongurl.com (now offline) - the opposite of tinyurl, a fun little hack that turned into something postive for SEO reasons.  Built in Cupertino at shdh20.
  • slut-o-meter.com (now offline) - put two people's names into this service and it'll return who's slutter based on the ratio of censored google results.  Built in Hillsborough at shdh7.


List your Project Ideas:

Please list your ideas for a fun project that could be built (or just started) within a few hours.  You don't have to commit yourself to the idea, but it's nice to have a few listed before the event to help get ideas flowing.


  • HungryGoThere - The name says it all...
  • One Sign Up To Rule Them All -  Solving the problem with using multiple RSVP systems 
  • Mr and Miss Startup Singapore -  Vote who's the HOTTEST in SG startup scene

  • SuperHappy Chicken! - A simple webpage/app that allows attendees to check-in at SHDH and a post a brief message for all to see.
  • WikiToGo - Offline versions of wikipedia, wikitravel, etc. for your iphone or droid (this exists on iphone, but it can be improved and there is no android version)
  • Smarter Magic 8 Ball - Ask it a question, it does a few google searches and then gives you a Magic 8 Ball answer
  • PowerPoint Ramen - Just like instant noodles, but for powerpoint.  Plug in a few keywords and phrases and it automagically generates a full fledged presentation for you.
  • URL Shortener on Diet - Creates the slimmest shortened URLs!
  • Something around GIS - there's lots of data available from SLA from http://www.sla.gov.sg/htm/ser/ser05.htm
  • App against App - Every Web App enters the ring... only one shall exit (per month).  
  • BrutalHonestTweets!  - Anyone can make a page and invite their followers to give them Brutally Honest Anonymous Feedback.

  • Something Beautiful Today - Cross platform mobile app to click and share photos of what makes you happy and motivates you and see what makes others happy.
  • This versus That - Where HotOrNot meets Hunch. Compare things quickly and efficiently. 
  • InstaMap - Create pdf maps with your notes and whisk them away for week long backpacking trips in the jungle with no internet!

  • Airline Spy — a better flight search/alert
  • TAD —  a parody website to counter perceived TED-smugneess, called "TAD: Perfection Worth Spreading".  Only a few pages need to be created, and it will be launched at the time of the Global TED conference mid-July.
  • Dance Roulette — Imagine an online club. You enter the site, turn on your webcam, and choose a type of dance music.
  • Java General Playlist Parser — There are many playlist parser formats e.g. pls, m3u, xspf, asx etc. etc.. The idea is to write (and maintain) a general playlist parser that will read (possibly even write) all types of playlists presented to it.
