What type of technical challenges did the group deal with?
Is the project a unique, breakthrough, or innovative idea that pushes beyond the problem to be solved?
Does the output possess remarkable, clean overall design that engages users? Is the user interface efficient and easy to use?
How useful is this demo based on the problem they are trying to solve?
Are you blown away by what you see?
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.
