Winners of PayPal BattleHack Tel Aviv


The PayPal BattleHack from Tel Aviv in late February was a smashing success with a full house of hackers duking it out to create something meaningful for the local community and it did not disappoint! Socializr came away as the winner to represent Tel Aviv in the BattleHack finals in San Jose this November. Socializr is a really unique application that helps people socialize in the REAL world instead of the virtual one.

Other winners included Focus App, which attempts to solve drinking and driving, and Line App, which successfully solved the age old problem of people cutting in line! Check out more info about the winners here, and their highlight video below the fold.

You can join the battle by signing up for your local BattleHack. The BattleHack in Instabul is already sold out, but you can leave your name and email in case any more spots open up!
