AR/VR Heartland Developer Challenge Hackathon

A weekend team building and development sprint to move AR/VR applications from concept to prototype, addressing key community problems.

The AR/VR Heartland Developer Challenge is a year-long program designed to build proof of concept applications using augmented or virtual reality to address key social impact areas facing our Heartland Communities. We have worked closely with community stakeholders (including University of Central Missouri, KU Medical Center, Children’s Mercy, Truman Medical Center, University of Nebraska Medical Center, and the American Jazz Museum) to identify meaningful opportunities for AR/VR apps to make a difference.

A little different than your typical hackathon — we’re recruiting dynamic teams looking to deliver real impact. You won’t be starting from scratch and you will have an opportunity to continue building after the hackathon is finished. Even if you are new to the program, you will still have a chance to participate in the creative process. We may even have new ideas that are presented during the hackathon.

If you are ready to help solve these problems and create new solutions, sign up to be a part. We are looking for AR/VR enthusiasts, developers, designers, technical people, product people. In addition to building cool solutions that solve real world problems, the top team gets $10k to keep building, 2nd place gets $5k.

Participants will have a chance to develop/refine your skills, meet new people and experience collaborative work. Scratch your innovation itch and do something fun and forward looking.


The event is finished.
