Major League Hacking 2017 Hackathon Season

SMART CITIES

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

For the last decade, Holst Centre has been developing technology for large area printed electronics (OLED lighting & displays, flexible solar cells, smart surfaces) and wireless electronics enabling the IoT. Electronics becomes part of everyday objects and surfaces become interactive.

We challenge you to extrapolate these developments and project that to some situation 30 years from now and show how this can impact the transportation of both people and goods. What will this look like? How can technology help to make this more efficient, both logistically and with respect to our environmental footprint? Can technology help to make the radical changes that will be coming more acceptable/fun for the users?

Can you come up with new forms, shapes, features, hardware, etc. that will be needed to make this possible?

RESOURCES AND EXTRA INFORMATION

During the hackathon, TNO and Holst Centre will provide you with the following extra information (ask for it at their stand):

HOW CAN YOU WIN THIS TRACK?

The outcomes will be assessed based on:

  • Challenging them by describing what is still missing. Describe new features or hardware that will be needed and make it plausible that this can be made reality.
  • Surprising them with your ideas on how printed electronics will shape the future of transportation. How will it be exciting, but at the same time sustainable.
