This Is Your Last Chance To Design The Greatest Human Computer Interface

This is your last chance to get your project together for the Human Computer Interface Challenge in this year’s Hackaday Prize. We’re looking for innovative interfaces for humans to talk to machines or machines to talk to humans. These are projects that make technology more intuitive, more fun, and a more natural activity. This is your time to shine, and we’re accepting entries in the Human Computer Interface Challenge in this year’s Hackaday Prize until August 27th. This is your last weekend to work on your project, folks.

This is one of the best years of the Hackaday Prize yet, with almost one thousand projects vying for the top prize of $50,000 USD. That doesn’t mean everyone else is going home empty handed; we’ve already awarded $1000 prizes to twenty projects in each of the first three challenges, and this coming Monday, we’ll be figuring out the winners to the Human Computer Interface challenge. Twenty of those finalists will be awarded $1000 USD, and move onto the final round where they’re up for the Grand Prize.

Don’t miss your last chance to get in on the Human Computer Interface Challenge in this year’s Hackaday Prize. We’re looking for an interface that could be visual, auditory, haptic, olfactory, or something never before imagined. We’re sure we’re going to see an Alexa duct taped to a drone, and that’s awesome. We’re taking all comers. Don’t wait — start your entry now.

This challenge ends at 7:00am PDT on August 27th. After this challenge is over, it’s on to the Musical Instrument Challenge, where hackers will build the latest synth, guitar, theremin, electric violin, sampler, or anything musical. We’re really looking forward to this one, and it’s going on until October 8th. After that, it’s on to the finals of the Hackaday Prize where the finalists will compete for the Grand Prize of $50,000 (and four other top prizes) to be announced at the Hackaday Superconference in early November.

  1. The good news if you develop it and show case it, it will be ripped off by Google or some other company, then patented and in a year you’ll see it on some new device.

    Look, you know the major players have scouts out there trying to find some cool tech to steal.

  2. ‘k I’ve got an idea, for visual display it modulates the color/intensity of the 5000 brightest stars, through a visor and 10 camera headset, so the whole night sky is your monitor and you gesture control it by body and limb position at the apex of trampoline jumps.
