Our Teams

Here’s to our Winners and all of our great teams!

Our Winners!

First, credit where it’s due: our great winning teams!

LinkedID
In our culture, the most natural way to make a connection is the handshake. LinkedID detects these handshakes and exchanges contact information among its users without the need for business cards.

Smart Tag
Trying on clothing for size is almost always a chore — using Smart Wear Tag, it’s no longer an issue. Scanning the smart tag with your smartphone allows for the app to suggest the correct size for your measurements and to suggest other products that might fit your usage patterns.

TapTap
Making a connection between generations is the mission of Tap Tap, a wearable which can be customised by anyone and gifted to their grandparents, giving them a way to feel connected and a two-way communication to signal when one is thinking about the other.

MyClock
In our hectic times, getting a bit more restful is important. A mixture of art project and app, My Clock manipulates our perception of time by making it speed up or slow down with our pulse.

The awesome Runners-up!

Don’t discount our Runners-up, they were great teams!

Flutter Brain
Having people around who are on the same wavelength makes anything better — and this is where Flutterbrain comes in. Using EEG technology, Flutterbrain analyses mood states and recommends people and events matching the individual mood state of the user.

Scan Me
Using a printed QR-Code, Scan Me dares anyone to scan those wearing their fashionable shirts and to discover what that person has stored online. It could be a comic, contact details or a website — the limit is your imagination.

Homee
Going home alone and late at night can be an uncomfortable thought for many women — homee tackles this by providing a simple and secure app which brings women living closeby together and allowing them to share the way home and keep each other safe.

eMio Swift
eMio Swift uses beacon technology to simplify and streamline the booking and use of shared electric scooters.
