Join the Seattle VR community for a weekend of creativity, innovation, and learning with VR and other immersive technologies
Come join us for a weekend of creativity, innovation, and learning! The VR Hackathon is an opportunity to learn about Virtual Reality and other immersive technologies, to meet new people, and to get hands-on experience with VR design and development.
VR and AR are of great interest to many industries such as medicine, manufacturing, marketing, design, construction, and many more. If you have domain expertise in any field where immersive technologies might be useful, we would love to have you attend, as your insight is key in helping us to solve real problems, even if you've never worked with these technologies before.

Feature Prize - Language Learning in VR / AR
VR and AR have a unique ability to immerse you in other places and other cultures, which makes them ideally suited for learning languages. This prize will be awarded to the best immersive experience for teaching language using the Rosetta Stone Speech Recognition Engine (SRE).

Step 1 - Rating
Judges begin by rating your projects on a scale of 1-5 according to the several criteria: Completeness, Visual Design, Audio Design, Interaction Design, Technical Achievement, Use of Narrative, and Novelty.
Step 2 - Ranking
Next, ratings are used to rank projects within each of the above criteria, allowing us to quickly identify which projects stand out within each.
Step 3 - Discussion
Once the top projects are identified, our judges discuss the pros and cons of each one to explore the differences in their opinions.
Step 4 - Decisions
Finally, judges select winners by consensus. In general we try to ensure that no team wins more than one prize.
