Judging Criteria

  • Technicality
    What type of technical challenges did the group deal with?
  • Originality
    How unique and innovative is the demo? Can it be found in previous submissions?
  • Practicality
    How useful is this demo based on the problem they are trying to solve?
  • Design
    Is the project visually appealing? Does the project have a pleasant user experience?
  • Wow Factor
    Are you blown away by what you see?
  • Note:
    The potential for your hack to become a company/startup will receive no special consideration. You are not allowed to use a powerpoint/slides during judging; you must do a live demo of what you made.
