How to enter
Make sure to register soon at DandyHacks.net!
Once you submit an application, you will later be notified of a decision. Be quick to apply before we run out of spots!
How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many different components? Did the technology involved make you go "Wow"?
Did the team put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a website, this might be about how beautiful the CSS or graphics are. For a hardware project, it might be more about how good the human-computer interaction is.
Is the project fun? Did you have a good reaction? Is it something interesting that you haven't seen before?
