Wild & Hackathon Compos

In additon to the general rules, all entries for the following competitions must also conform to these additional requirements:

Freestyle Interactive

This compo is for any hardware / software platform that involves interaction with one or more living things that change the state and behavior of your entry.  There must be both hardware and software components, though you don’t have to build the microcontroller hardware.  The compo machine counts as the hardware in the default case, otherwise please provide your own hardware or alternatively request a piece of equipment from our gear list prior to the party.

Examples of applicable entries range from VR simulations to video games and all the way to large software controlled sculptures. Designate a representative to demonstrate the entry during the competition. Demonstration time is 5 minutes
