Digility Hackathon

Johannes lead the first DIGILITY hackathon on Day 1 of the event. The powerhouse team leading the event included main sponsor Audi, and supporting partners: HTC Vive, Vectorform, Unity, and Salt and Pepper. The hackathon brought together interdisciplinary teams who worked together for 32-dedicated hours to find solutions for collaborative work in VR.

The challenge was derived from automotive use cases including:

  • Engineers collaborating on virtual automotive designs
  • The use of virtual tools to test designs and configurations, and
  • The challenges of teaching and learning in shared virtual spaces or with virtual objects.
