Create a fun, simple IoT accelerometer game

You can create a fun little game to play with your friends and colleagues. With anyone that has a smartphone you can play a game I call “Harlem Shake.” (Watch us shake it up at a recent DeepLearning meetup.)
Playing is easy: give someone a URL that they access on their smartphone, and then have them shake their smartphone as hard as they can. The person who uses the most energy wins!
What happens behind the scenes is pretty basic: accelerometer data from the smartphone is streamed to the cloud, captured in a database, and then a script calculates the winner. It sounds simple and fun. But, you have to build it first. And you’ll get to learn a lot about MQTT, NodeRED, ApacheCouchDB, and ApacheSpark along the way.”
