Israeli Startup Wins TechCrunch Disrupt
After three days of competition at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco, Shaker defeated 30 other startups to win the coveted Disrupt Cup and $50,000. The Israeli company dazzled the judges with its social game that turns Facebook into a virtual bar. The game allows users to interact in real time in a shared environment by turning their Facebook profiles into walking avatars and placing pictures on a virtual wall. Users can even choose what music is playing and buy other people virtual drinks. Shaker has gained overwhelming popularity, forcing the company to block over 500 invitations.
