This weekend in San Francisco, MasterCard will be a title sponsor and partner for the Wearable World In-Flight Wearable Technology Hackathon.

The event, focusing on the connected traveler, will combine developers and hardware manufacturers in the wearable space taking place to create new technologies for trial on American Airlines.

Beginning Saturday, June 6th, more than 200 developers will have a chance to work with American's development team, hardware and API partners like MasterCard throughout the weekend to create the next killer wearable app/product. Featured MasterCard API Services that will enable developers to build mobile and wearable apps include MasterCard Location Services, Simplify Commerce, MasterPass Partner Wallet, and MoneySend.

Teams will then have 30 days to develop a prototype of their technology, with finalists then selected to test out their systems on a transcontinental American Airlines flight from New York City to San Francisco aboard the new Airbus A321T. The winning team receives an incubation sponsorship with Wearable World - as well as the opportunity to pitch American Airlines Technology Group.

Additional partners and sponsors for the hackathon include Avegant, Citibank, Deloitte, Gogo, IBM, Nod Labs, Pebble and Plantronics.
