The Garage48 Virtual and Augmented Reality hackathon in Odessa showcased the technologies of the future!

On the night of  June 16 around 70 people joined us at Terminal 42, Odessa to pitch or listen to what VR/AR ideas our contestants have for us. We had 19 brave idea owners pitching and after that 10 teams were submitted into development. In 48 hardcore hours, we had all those 10 teams prepared and ready for the final pitches. 

Before congratulating our winners, we have to thank our amazing mentors who worked day and night to make sure the teams can bring their projects to new levels! THANK YOU!
