Hackathon

What should the city of the future look like?

This question has occupied many generations before us. Today, the challenges seem to be particularly great again, the future seems more unpredictable than it has been for a long time. What visions are we developing in 2020 for future urban coexistence? How can we succeed in making the city of the future liveable, digital and sustainable?

We at Places _ VR Festival believe that the technologies of Extended Reality (VR, AR, MR) are particularly suitable for discussing solutions, making visions come alive and planning the future. Does this sound like a challenge for you? Then join the Hackathon during the Places _ Virtual Reality Festival. Here you will have 24 hours to develop and prototype a VR/AR/MR app that focuses on the future of the city.
