London YouTube/Google TV Hackathon

Here's a photo from our demo at the end of last week's YouTube/GTV Hackathon where our team's effort was voted "Best Google TV App". (I'm on the left...)
In two days we build a Nexus Q-like app for YT video playback. We had multiple Android devices contributing to a video queue which with playback on the Google TV.
We hacked on a few Google technologies to do this: Android, Google TV, Python on App Engine, YouTube APIs, and the new Google Cloud Messaging.
A Big Thanks to Kirill Kounik for all the organisation and Google Campus for hosting the event.
