Melbourne VR health hackathon 2017
On 23-25 June 2017 at the Dream Factory in Footscray, six teams participated in the Melbourne chapter of the Global VR hackathon for a chance to compete in Shanghai later this year. The University of Melbourne was represented on a team investigating music therapy while other groups worked on Alzheimer’s disease, food safety, mental health, physical rehabilitation and pregnancy education.
Judging criteria was based on the following criteria:
- Relevance to topic (is this related to health?)
- Use of VR (could this be done easily without VR?)
- Effectiveness of experience (how well does the experience do what it’s supposed to?)
If you are interested in future events or meetups be sure to join the Melbourne VR Meetup group.
