Demo expo and presentations

Good morning, AWE Hackers!

At about 2pm, we'll start wrapping-up hacking and prepare to setup the room for the demo expo. The expo works like a science fair: everyone will setup their project and demo to the judges who will be walking around and evaluating your projects. You too are, of course, also free to walk around and check out the other hacks.

When you submit your hack to ChallengePost, notice that there is a place to include tags in the 'Built with' section! For instance, if you hacked on Epson and Leap Motion, include the 'epson' and 'leapmotion' hashtags in your submission. This helps the sponsors exactly who they should give our their prizes to, so it's definitely in your best interest to tag your submission.

At 3:00pm, we will begin the ChallengePost judging process, which means you won't be able to submit your hack anymore. Make SURE you submit your hack before then (you can submit at any time before the 3:00pm today).

At 4:00pm, we'll end the demo expo. The judges will collaboratively choose their top10 teams, and those teams will get to take the stage and present to everyone else, and the full panel of judges. The presenting top10 teams will get access to the projector, microphone, and everyone's attention for a maximum of five minutes, so prepare accordingly!

Good luck, everyone!

P.S. I forgot to mention yesterday that Optinvent is giving out one of their ORA devices as a prize (worth $950). Go talk to their rep at the Optinivent sponsor table!

P.S.S. Please remember to return any borrowed devices and pickup your ID.
