Judging Criteria

  • Productivity

  • Technical Difficulty
    Is the hack technically interesting or difficult? Is it just a basic use of an API, or were there real technical challenges to surmount?
  • Innovation
    Is the hack more than just another generic social/mobile/local app? Does it do something entirely novel, or at least take a fresh approach to an old problem?
  • Immersive
    Does the hack engages the user and immerse into a whole new world? Focus on User interaction and user experience is a plus
