Bananium Labs was formed in November 2017 when we decided to create an organization in which we could organize our various
software projects, Git repositories, and hackathon submissions into one place. Never again would
we have to have the hour-long debate surrounding whose account to associate our code to. What started
as a small group of three developers grew quickly, as we began to look for more members to attend
hackathons and contribute to our projects. So far, we have attended
7 hackathons (our projects are showcased below). We're also interested in game development-
our game projects are organized within
Two Terabyte Studios.
Bananium Labs is in the process of aquiring 501c3 status. Email us to let us know if you're interested in membership or collaboration.
Launch Hacks Iclose
Launch Hacks is a 24 hour, 200-participant hackathon hosted by Monta Vista High School students. Our goal is to bring high school students in the Bay Area together to convert ideas into reality. In addition to helping students improve their design and development skills, we also provide support to help students improve business and presentation skills- not just to pitch a successful project, but also to inspire the next generation of inventors, entrepreneurs, and leaders. Food, workshops, prizes, and swag will be provided to all participants for free!
LaunchHacks I is proudly hosted by BananiumLabs.
Winner - Best Internet Of Things
Today's world is full of complications and information that is easily lost in other information found in other information. With the hassles of letters, taxes, bills, and paychecks all coming in the same place, we decided to make it a bit more organized. This is why we made Fly Mail, an physical electronic mail box that sorts and stores your mail into piles and the cloud respectively, allowing organization and an effortless life style at the forefront of your day.
Hardware with Arduino, relay from digikey (since we dont have a H bridge), Dragonboard for running vision, and a low res usb camera. Most important of all, a Nike 'project' box.

Instead of walking with a cane or some other aid, visually impaired people walk around with their phone with Aspicio running. The lightweight app built with angular takes constant pictures and connects to a python based server to analyze the photos. With the use of powerful GPU's in the cloud, the image is processed almost instantly and sent back to the phone which gives vibration and sound feedback if an obstacle is there.
