Hufflepuff? Slytherin? Only the Sorting Hat knows on your first day at Hogwarts... and now you can build your own! Tune in as  Jennifer Marsman showcases how she built her own Sorting Hat using an app she developed for Windows Phone along with an old, slightly tarnished (but filled with tons of character!) hat.  Using text-to-speech and the accelerometer, the sorting hat is never wrong. Ten points to Gryffindor! LetsdevthisTile_139x139
