Meegathon

Meegathon is a competetion in which participants (in teams of max 3 persons) are encouraged to start building open source libraries to be used in AR- applications, but the teams can also choose a topic outside the given scenario (eg nothing to do with AR-applications). The participants of the competetion can begin development now, register the team to competetion and finish the work at the event. Best solutions will be demonstrated to the summit audience and rewarded. We provide a scenario for the competetion which uses/includes Parrot AR.drones, but other ideas/applications/hardware innovations are more than welcome.
