Dutch developers win contest with Spotify cover scanner mash-up

Loek Essers | April 27, 2012
A team of Dutch developers won a 30-hour hacking challenge at the Next Web conference Thursday with a service that uses a webcam to scan album covers in the database of online streaming music service Spotify.

Another less serious effort was called TrollBox, which uses the DropBox API, among others, to pull an office prank on co-workers who forget to lock their computers when they leave their desks. The developed application allows users to give any photo stored on the computer a troll-face. The developers said they love office pranks.

All hacks were listed on a wiki-page and some developed applications were listed on open source code repository GitHub.
