My team's LA Hacks hackathon project. This project was made in 36 hours. 

Cloud NES is a website that allows you to play many classic NES games with your keyboard, or with our app on any iOS device. We also support multiplayer, so users with our app can sync their app with our web page and start playing together.

How it works:

When a user visits the page, they are given a unique key. They simply enter that unique key into their controller/app, which then syncs up that web page with their phone controller.

Development:

The webpage uses HTML5 web sockets to communicate with the server. My C# server is using the Alchemy Websockets library for the web socket server, and then a native socket implementation for communicating with the controller.

If you're going the mobile app route for your site, make sure to check out Ratchet, from the creators of Bootstrap.

This guy gets it..
 
Now this could be quite interesting...

For those people who are comfortable with #locationservices turned on (admittedly, I am not one of them  and really only turn it on periodically for #ingress), imagine being able to open up an app to see who in your vicinity has opened up a chatroom on a specific topic.

My tech side realizes how much of a great idea this is, my humanity side wonders how much we need to withdraw from the reality in our vicinity to focus on a screen rather than the actual event.

The power of the idea is the discoverability of the chatroom without previous organization.  If you're in a location and witness an event you may be able to logon to the service to find out if anybody else in the vicinity has more information.  Parents at a PTA meeting could be discussing the event live amongst each other.

I wonder if chatrooms will persist in a location without the originator being present.  Food for thought.

Really had fun at #LAhacks hackathon. It was nice to see Sean Rad, CEO of Tinder, actively participating.

I always make sure to use Google's PageSpeed, but this will really come in handy to see the user experience on slower connections.
