frog + Google Converge Hackathon
Google and frog are bringing together some of the most innovative minds in technology and design. The Converge Hackathon is a platform for the multi-disciplinary collaboration and the exploration of new concepts within the digital sphere; where ideas, technology and human needs converge.
WHAT IT IS ABOUT?
This time the Converge Hackathon is going to be about new ways of experimenting with media. Here are the challenges you will be asked to tackle:
Our media consumption increasingly transcends formats and devices. We expect seamless transitions from TV to mobile to gaming console; or even to use them all simultaneously. What is the next frontier for seamless multi-media interactivity?
The way we perceive, produce and share information is changing. What does the future hold for our daily terabytes of user-generated content, data and news? And how can we empower mass communication and self-expression for content and creators?
What is the future of sensing in media? Will augmented reality deliver on the promise of immersive media? Or will other technologies help realize an experience even richer in context and emotion?
