11-year old Victoria Walker created a concept for an anti-texting while driving app with designer David Grau. The idea was born during a hackathon held in August, promoting AT&T’s “It Can Wait” campaign.
The app, called Rode Dog, works like this: Users are separated into packs. Every member of a pack can see if the others from the pack are having some kind of texting while driving action. If that is the case, they can send them a barking sound, which means knock it off.
They intend to produce the app for iOS, Android and even Windows Phone. It should be ready sometime by the end of the year. The $20,000 from AT&T will go toward the development of the app and some additional features for it.
