'Cruizing Car,' designed at the Disrupt Hackathon, is a car rental app that allows users to track drivers' habits to pre-approve or reject possible renters. The app tracks the status and location of vehicles rented, the amount of money the user has made and, most importantly, the driving statistics of potential future and past renters.

The app uses the car's OBD connector port to monitor the driving patterns of renters. Based on things like speed, miles driven and damage or lack-thereof, users of the car rental app can make informed decisions in a custom approval process.

The app can be used in tandem with services like 'RelayRides' or 'FlightCar,' providing more confidence and a sense of insurance. Created and presented by Tom Rutka, this app would encourage more hesitant car owners to rent out their vehicles as a way to make some extra cash.
