Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:
We are looking for technically advanced solutions to technically challenging problems that make use of hardware and API’s. However, if you can solve a technically challenging problem with a simple solution, we will be just as impressed!
We are looking for original ideas or new angles on existing ideas. For example, using an API in a unique way. We know API’s work - we want to see if you can do something new and awesome with them!
Design and Polish
We are looking for aesthetically pleasing projects with smooth and clear user experience
Practicality and Usefulness
We are looking for socially good projects that people would use. Additionally, we would like to emphasize that we will extensively check to make sure that your project doesn’t only work on the cases you demo.
