    We want to develop a tool for tracking products back through their supply chain to the raw materials. At the same time the tool will measure ecological and social impact of products. We want do differentiate concrete pieces of clothing, ie t-shirts and jeans, by their ecological and social footprints enabling buyers to make choices based on detailed information. The tool will function as a real-world game, where players could track the product by finding and adding relevant information, for example countries, factories, cotton-growing regions, energy use, waste flows etc.    

    Hooray Us!

    Hurray Us! is a game platform for kids and parents to play, to video the performances and to rate each others' videos online. Complete a challenge, upload the video and a new level will open up! Kids will have fun, learn new skills and spend more time with friends and families.

    Filp me

    We are setting up technological platform for voice recognition, not for a weekend, forthnight, or few month, but for our longer goal, which is making information easily available in the most natural medium, and that is voice. Our sample study is commuting in the cityscape and navigating to the nearest service points that you might need. Wait for out demo!

    Currency rate XML/JSON exporter

    Idea is to make currency rate XML/JSON exporter for ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) softwares. This service includes almost all the world currency rates updated every day from central banks official databases. Service will be ten times cheaper than compeditor prices (200 USD versus 20 USD per month). 

    Special guests

    For the first time Garage48 invited companies and working teams to the event and take their idea further. Garage48 Tartu 2010 winner Defolio is using the chance to finish an important feature of their already working service and be a part of the energy created at the event. They do not take part of the competition and consider themselves winners anyway.

    Defolio Competitions

    Design competitions around the world need a simple, hosted, social platform for running all their annual regional events. Defolio makes it possible, collecting a small percentage of the submission fee of each work.
