Everyone deserves to be happy, we are born to experience life, to fulfil our desires and contribute to the world in which we live in a way that satisfies our soul. Harmony in the mind, body and soul is the key to ultimate happiness, and we want hackers to innovate new technologies to help everyone attain this balance.

Teams will be judged on following four criteria.
It is left to the team to decide what is the best way to present their idea and satisfy judging criteria.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a team. We will help you form a team, do make sure to join our happy hour pre event on 21 June.
There is no maximum or minimum team size, but we encourage team size of 2-5.
We will have domain experts on various topics including Mental Health, Happiness, Yoga/Meditation, Product Design, AR/VR, Data and Technology; who will help and support your team. We will also be running number of speaking sessions throughout the day.

Yes, and drinks!
No, business folk, designers and anyone with bright ideas and energy and interest in Happiness Tech is most welcome!
Your laptop and any other devices you need to demonstrate your hack such as AR/VR equipment, specific mobile phone, IoT devices, robots etc.
You are encouraged to present what you have done even if your hack is broken or you weren’t able to finish. It's okay if you didn't finish your hack—that happens all the time! Completion is only one part of the judging criteria, so you might still do well. Also, demoing is not just about the competition. It's a chance to share with others what you learned and what you tried to build—that's what hacking's all about!
