A wearable device to monitor construction workers' health was ranked first at NYU Abu Dhabi's fourth annual International Hackathon for Social Good in the Arab World on Sunday.

The winning idea, called Hackee.me, can produce reports of worker health conditions for governments, and warn workers if they're getting dehydrated.

Hackee.me was developed by a team of local and international students, including Farah Shamout, NYU Abu Dhabi, Jordan, Martin Slosarik, NYU Abu Dhabi, Slovakia, Tony Lin, NYU Abu Dhabi, Taiwan, Nora Benson, University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, USA, Agoune Juba, Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Informatique, Algeria, Badreddine Zebbich, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Algeria, Hajrah Jahan, Manipal University, UAE, Mohamed-Zakariae El Khdime, Ibn Tofail University, Morocco, Hassan Bello, University of Wollongong in Dubai, UAE, Dora Palfi, NYU Abu Dhabi, Hungary, and Saif Rehman, University of Sharjah, UAE.

Hosted by the NYUAD Institute, the annual International Hackathon brought together students from around the world to work closely with mentors and develop mobile and web applications for social good in the Arab world.

Translate Tube, a crowd sourced voiceover translation service for existing video content, was ranked second, while Eco-Eco, an open world Farmville-like game where resources can only be earned through doing real-life environmental activities came third.

Sana Odeh, Affiliated Professor of Computer Science at NYUAD, said, "We are immensely proud of these students who conceptualised and developed ground-breaking mobile and web applications in just three days. The creativity and innovation demonstrated by our students and mentors highlights our ongoing commitment towards furthering technological innovation in the region."
