Participants in previous years have asked for more time to build, so we’ve added a fifth day to the schedule to expand creative time to almost 60 hours. Another request by participants was the opportunity to see the submissions built by other teams. On the last day of the hackathon, beginning right after the awards ceremony, the Insider Expo will begin, where participants can visit other teams’ tables to see their creative and original work. The hackathon will close with a public expo for the Boston/Cambridge AR/VR technology community at large.
The hackathon will kick off on January 17, 2019, with a full day of skill-building workshops on XR design, development, and XR platforms like the Vive, Hololens, and MagicLeap. Workshops will feature speakers covering hardware, development methodologies, and immersive design concepts.
Skilled in XR design, development, and with domain expertise in verticals such as healthcare and medicine, 40 mentors will help teams throughout the hackathon, coalescing individuals into teams, ideating, creating, troubleshooting, debugging, and refining for submission to the judges.
The Reality, Virtually Hackathon is a platform that cultivates unique innovations in the field of immersive technology. Our mission is the creation of a community of inclusion, where imaginative minds across all dimensions of diversity can collaborate to inspire innovation and build better together.
