#ELDESHACK

A QUEST TO SOLVING SAFETY CHALLENGE THROUGH THE POWER OF TECHNOLOGY, PERSONAL NEEDS AND FUNCTIONALITY FOR COMFORT.

Welcome to #eldeshack – a 48-hour event, where the best developers, designers, product, project and marketing managers meet to create their safety and comfort solution of the future.

You will get a great mentorship and create your dream safety product in one weekend.

HACKATHON CHALLENGES

The scope of this Hackathon is Home/Business/Personal safety and comfort solution products of the future. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

 

  1. Smarter and safer solutions for home or office (SMB).

We face new home & office security threats almost every day – we leave our homes barely secured when we’re at work, we place our apartments for rent when we’re on long holidays or we make a living out of this. However, most of the households still use the same (or very similar) technology which was created 15 years ago. It‘s neither very secure nor user-friendly. With this challenge we expect you to create some sort of device or a system which would make today‘s homes and offices #smart and #secure.

 

2. Solutions to make your life easier: transform your standard devices into smart #IoT.

We are used to be always connected and have everything in one place –a phone . But there are many devices and professional equipment that was made before wide spread of Internet. Will it be reliable professional equipment or tracker for Your dog? It’s up to You to define.

 

3. #Private safety solutions for yourself or your loved ones.

With this one we challenge you to create something that would make you sleep at night a lot better, knowing that you and your family are safer and you’d (or some sort of services) be notified quickly if they’re not. Child safety or elderly care, maybe electrified fence of flame thrower on Your bellowed car – let your imagination run wild!

You are not limited by these challenges. Have something great in mind? Surprise us!
