We have created an application that helps users view their electricity, water and gas consumption in a single platform. They can view their consumption on a daily, weekly, monthly or a quarterly basis. Our application will also notify the user of the early bird discount options on their phones and make the necessary payments securely.

Penny Parking

One tap to park, one tap to go
Team Name: 

We are creating a parking app which will help to streamline public car parks and payments. We will achieve this by negotiating a continuous 'pay as you go' system for public and kerbside car parks which would be incorporated into in-app payments and parking inspector's data so no need to carry petty cash in your car; it also means that you're not paying for unused time. In addition, we'll have a buddy system, similar to Uber, which notifies users when other users are about to leave parks close to their destination.

Data Story


Three dimensional purple cube with text MinAdelaide
Team Name: 

Nathaniel loves Minecraft and other kids would like to explore a city in Minecraft. In this project you can explore the city of Adelaide and discover historical information as well as having a look around. You might want to change a few things by adding or taking away a few blocks. Maybe you want to remove a really ugly building or change it. Anything is possible.

We've used the Adelaide City Council 3D model of Adelaide and data from the SA History hub (Places) to put in historical information into our Minecraft world.

Our hack will be a play-off between suburbs to give people a chance to objectively compare suburbs, using more than just the ABS data currently used on Real Estate websites. We aim to make it fun, with a chance to challenge your friends' suburbs on different areas including Road Safety, Income, Crime Stats, health and hospital services, and more!

Please watch our video, it does a great job of explaining:
