Topic

Topic

Convergence of technology is creating synergetic opportunities for cross-industry collaborations.

In this digital age, industry boundaries are being redefined and individual products are being shifted to cross-industry value experiences. Conventional value chains will be rendered obsolete but huge opportunities for growth are available for those who are willing to think differently and look beyond their own industry borders to identify new problems to solve, engage customers in creative ways and form unexpected partnerships.

With Virtual Reality as a new medium, how will this industry convergence continue to progress further?

In this VR hackathon, you will hack together a prototype or demo that uses interactive VR to converge 2 or more industries.

Judging will be based on functionality, convergence capability, fun factor and overall impressiveness.
