The last weekend of July saw ‘The Imagination Hackathon’, UNIHACK, providing students with the platform to showcase their ingenuity.
This year’s competition saw creations such as an autonomous robot that plays with your pet dog, a robotic hand for your smartphone, and a Rubix cube puzzle solver – nothing short of amazing was seen at UNIHACK 2016!
With 98 competitors (just shy of the 100 participant goal set by the organising committee), there were a significant amount of hardware-based hacks, with some teams incorporating Bosch sensors or Estimote beacons.
ACS Victoria would like to wish all winners and participants listed below a bright future in our rapidly changing industry and continually developing economy and we are sure we will see more of these extremely talented individuals in the years to come.
