WebRTCfest_Parrot_WinnerDevelopers had only a few weeks to submit a hack where they remotely control a Parrot Jumping Sumo Mini-Drone over WebRTC, showing the FPV live stream, and win a Parrot BeBop + SkyController.

Two teams on the final run, Neil & Tom, from UK, Nikolay & Fabrice from France. Both team are seasoned experts, check their work: Westhawk, Streamroot

When the judges tested their hack a few days before, both were equal, but finally, the first team who succeed in making everything work during the event was Neil & Tom, winning the Parrot Challenge.

If you want to know the details behind the scenes, Tom wrote a post on this blog about the architecture of their hack.

The competition was incredibly fierce from the beginning of the WebRTCfest. 150 registrations to participate to competition, 15 amazing hacks presented as video pitches. The startups were competing for $6,000 and Parrot Drones. After minutes of deliberations, WebRTCfest organizers pored over the judges’ notes and narrowed the list down to five finalists: “Cult answer machine”, “I see you!”, “Smart Assistance”, Togetheroo, And “Video Party”. These projects made their way to the finale to demo in front of our final panel of judges, which were Chad Hart (WebRTCHacks), Dan Burnett (StandardsPlay / W3C Author), Amir Zmora (The New Dialtone), Chris Koehncke (ChrisKranky.com) and Alan Quayle (AlanQuayle.com).

And now, meet the WebRTCfest 2014 winner.
