Sharing the API will enable developers to harness the unique power of #hex. The unique ability to broadcast information where there is no internet could make all the difference in certain situations – the right information at the right place at the right time could literally save a life. Yet there are numerous application scenarios where #hex is able to make a valuable difference: from Theme Parks to Museums, Hospital Navigation, Retail Centres, Education, Asset Tracking, offers in coffee shops to treasure hunts; the list goes on!
We created our free #hexology app to serve our global community, yet with so many other potential applications out there we want to find developer teams we can collaborate with us on the challenges and opportunities we face. So we have structured our Kickstarter campaign to reward developer teams with developer kits which include a set of #hexes and early access to the API.
Aimed at developers and organisations interested in creating user experiences with #hex, the developer rewards give early access to our Android and iOS API. Here is a breakdown of the developer rewards.
- Early Bird Developer
Get a set of 6 #hexes and early access to our Android and iOS API, before anyone else, and become one of our preferred Beta Testers. The aim is to manufacture and send one #hex plus the API to you before the shipment deadline, so that you can play with it as soon as possible. Your feedback will help us ensure that everything is okay, given that we have already had some successful trials we are expecting a lot of happy campers!
- Developer Partner
Get a set of 12 #hexes and early access to our Android and iOS API. Our goal is to find and create collaborative relationships with teams who want to work with us to build and support a network of users.
Participation in the developer program means that you get to steer the development of the API around your needs, so we are looking for a conversation with you to ensure that you are getting the most out of #hex technology. More than a focus group, we are offering deep-level collaborative interaction and we realise that it won’t just happen straight away, at first we’ll need time to work with the technology and then over time things will get interesting.
If you are a part of a group of individuals you can club together to pay the pledge and there should be enough hexes in the to share amongst your group. Yet for those with a more corporate profile we promise confidentiality and discretion.
