The “See Smarter: Moverio Glasses Hackathon” drew a strong turnout of both veteran and up-and-coming developers looking to put both their knowledge and creativity to the test.
All things considered, the hackathon was a success. We loved the applications that our participants came up with–such as racing against your own, virtual 3D avatar in a real-world foot race, or creating a haunted house with virtual ghosts and ghouls springing from around various corners.
The benefits also exceeded our expectations. In addition to interesting augmented realty apps, we connected with the local technology community, made promising new business contacts, and even drew the attention of local media. And we had a lot of fun.
I’d also like to send a huge thanks to Michael Leyva, our UCLA MBA summer intern, for running the show!
