Submitting to this hackathon could earn you:
We are looking for technically advanced solutions to technically challenging problems that make use of hardware and/or APIs. However, making an extensive solution with integrated simple technologies is equally impressive!
Originality & Creativity
We are looking for original ideas or new angles on existing ideas. For example, using an API in a unique way. We know APIs work—we want to see if you can do something new and awesome with them!
User Experience & Design
We are looking for aesthetically pleasing projects with a clear and intuitive user experience.
Practicality & Impact
We are looking for impactful projects that solve real-world problems. Additionally, we would like to emphasize the importance of the scope of your project as well as the scalability of your solution.
If you submit your project to a track or challenge, we are looking for relevance to the spirit/requirements of that track/challenge.
