Is this Hackathon about Augmented Reality (AR)?
No. This Hackathon does not solely revolve around Augmented Reality. We're using the word 'Augmented' as a broad theme for this Hackathon as we focus on improving or enhancing people's experiences when they interact with technology. We want to push the boundaries of technology to shape the future of productivity. Our focus is not on AR, but rather on the enhancement or augmentation of products, experiences, and processes to shape the Future of Work. And AR may well be one of the technologies you choose to employ.
