The Hackathon was hold in Torino at the i3P Incubator of Polictecnico, it was a great success with 115 participants from all over Italy, 30 submitted ideas, and 14 projects who were selected for the Hackathon.
Hiris showed how a wearable device can be used to control the smart home devices by using simple hand gestures, the project was developed by 3 italian startups - Apio, Circle Garage, and SpotSoftware – that during the event decided to work together to this project.
The best runner up project was instead Smart Tips that presented a gamification approach to the energy saving.
Third prize was won by NED, a Non Intrusive Load Monitoring system from Midori.
