Create Your World.
The challenge for this series of hackathons is to craft new ways that the processor and All In One PC can be an integral part of the family experience. Ideas and interactivity models range from quantified self to multi-device, multi-player gaming and beyond. While we are not asking you to create a robot of the future, there are ways of utilizing the microprocessor at home for interesting interactivity models.
The simplest interactivity model is gaming as that is something the whole family can gather around. Bonus points for those teams that can roll an educational slant into their game. Better yet, one team will get their game FINISHED and distributed by Wild Tangent. You can check out the previous winner, Africa Swing, via this link.
So the challenge is simple: Create an app that involves an AIO PC and mobile phones. Bonus points for eduaction related apps and of course the Wild Tangent prize for the best game. Create what you imagine. Create your world.
