API for the world is a physical device that can turn anything with a power cord into a networked object. It’s part of an effort to fill the gap between “smart” and low-tech devices. You can use an online dashboard to create unique profiles for different objects in your house and connect them to a variety of web services. It was created by a team of ITP students at NYU’s TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon. Other team members included Karla Calderon, Cameron Cundiff, Chika Iijima, Rune Madsen, Sofy Yuditskaya, and Shahar Zaks.
“API for the world was my top favorite. I think that’s a sellable product and it is damn awesome.” – Judge Cyan Banister
