Meet the cool teams of Garage48 Georgia 2015 hackathon!

Whatever challenges we have faced this weekend, the halls at Expo Georgia are buzzing with ideas and 11 teams have formed to hack them into prototypes. It has been really cool to mix the local and international to see the differences and similarities of everyone here. This weekend is a mix of everything - cultures, people, ideas, aspects of design, development, business - and that is what makes this extra special. For that we owe a big thanks to our friends from the Georgia’s Innovation and Technology Agency, who welcomed us and helped us put this event together. And there’s more to come! 

But as the teams are giving their protoypes the final touch and perfecting their presentation pitches, we want to introduce them in a little more detail:
