Hackathon

From a task to a VR/AR prototype in just 24 hours – in interdisciplinary teams of designers, coders and experts from many other fields. That is the Places _ Hackathon. We at the Places _ VR Festival believe that the technologies of Extended Reality (VR, AR, MR) are particularly suitable for discussing solutions to particular challenges facing our society, for bringing visions to life and for planning the future. At the Places _ Hackathon, participants have 24 hours to develop and prototype a VR/AR/MR application that will help to master the challenges of our time a little better.

The Places _ Hackathon showcases the full innovative power of Extended Reality!

How can VR, AR & Co make the digital world safer?

How can VR, AR & Co make the digital world more secure?
Whether it’s hacker attacks, espionage or security gaps – problems around the topic of IT and data security occupy corporations and start-ups, municipalities and ministries. During the 24 hours of this year’s Places _ Hackathon, the teams will therefore deal with IT security challenges. How can IT infrastructures be better visualised? How can people be better trained in the safe use of computers and servers? What risks does VR technology itself actually pose?
