LONDON EVENT (JUNE 18-19, 2016) HERE! INNOVATION WAREHOUSE

ABOUT THE TECH FLIR Lepton® is a revolutionary longwave infrared (LWIR) imager that is ten times less expensive than traditional thermal cameras, making it the perfect core for your prototype. For more information visit lepton.flir.com. At this event we’ll provide Leptons, breakout boards, developer kits, and many other things you can use to create something cool with Lepton.

With FLIR ONE® you can explore the world around you in ways you never thought possible. Simply attach FLIR ONE to your smartphone or tablet and experience a new vision of the world. FLIR ONE offers non-contact spot temperature measurement, patented MSX Technology, and automatic shuttering. For more information visit flir.com/flirone. At this event we’ll provide both iOS and Android FLIR ONEs along with demo phones if you need them. The Cat S60 is the world’s first integrated thermal imaging smartphone, including an embedded Lepton thermal camera from FLIR, allowing Cat phone users to be the first in the world to use their smartphone without an attachment for a multitude of use cases, including: detecting heat loss around windows and doors; spotting moisture and missing insulation; identifying over-heating electrical appliances and circuitry; and seeing in complete darkness. For more information click here. At this event we’ll provide demo s60 phones for development, but supplies are limited so you will need to apply for and be accepted to the Cat s60 demo program at the event and also sign the Cat s60 participation agreement.

What are the rules around fresh code / makes?

  1. For Fresh code / makes: All code developed as part of the FLIR Hackathon must be fresh. Before the start of the FLIR Hackathon, developers can create wireframes, designs and user flows. But to keep things fair, all code must be written onsite at the FLIR Hackathon starting at 8:45pm on Friday. App must have fresh code or demonstrate that there was no thermal component in solution previously. Other than that, almost anything goes and you can use any coding languages or open-source libraries. For makers, you’re welcome to bring your tools, supplies and plans to the event, but you must begin your actual build onsite at the hackathon, starting at 8:45pm on Friday.

FLIR ONE requirements:

Each team is required to submit their completed project to Hackathon.io for judging consideration no later than 12pm on Sunday. San Francisco Attendees must enter project here and London Attendees must enter project here. Accepted submissions will be given 3 min to pitch their functioning software or hardware solution Sunday afternoon in front of a panel of judges, with 1 minute provided for Q&A. The format is free, but it is recommended to share a very brief presentation, e.g. PowerPoint or a video combined with a demo (e.g. video) of the solution developed. We will provide projection equipment and an Apple TV to display your app on your phone screen to the judges.

Who Owns the IP?

Participants will own the rights to their work. However, for teams to be eligible for the winning prize, they must commit to further work on and develop their prototypes within a reasonable period of time, all of which mentorship and support will be provided by FLIR. If the teams decide not to further develop the ideas, FLIR retains the right to produce a similar product with different methods. Full information available in the event participation agreement.
