The WIPJam@MWC next Thursday will feature something new for us: a Guinness World Record attempt! We are excited to welcome the Blinkendroid crew from Germany along to the jam, and during lunch, we are going to try and break the record they set for “Largest animated mobile phone mosaic” at the Google Developer Day in Munich in November. If you aren’t familiar with Blinkendroid, it’s some cool Android software that makes devices aware of their neighbors — and then able to act as one giant screen for animations. Here’s some video of their world record:
Definitely very cool stuff! To break the record, we need at least 73 Android devices — but let’s shoot for 100. All you need to take part is an Android device running v1.6 or better; we’ll have Wi-Fi in the room to handle the data. You can go ahead and download the app from the Android Market now, or grab it on site. Either way, if you have an Android phone, join in the fun and become part of a Guinness World Record!
