Need some inspiration for your project? Here are some ideas:
•IUT! IoT (Internet of Useful Things) - The Internet of Useful Things showcases a way to build a better tomorrow with the data you track and analyze. Prevent sick cattle and livestock with an IoT Farm, create a way for denizens to find clean well water in rural villages, or reduce energy waste in a smart home.
• Wheels, Wings, and Walkers - Movement and support for things that help move humanity forward are the objectives of your project. Wheelchairs, environmental drones, kickass bicycles for all shapes and sizes- these are the things to think about.
•Assistive technologies - Build a project that helps others move better, see better, or live better. Imagine custom-fit eco-friendly respiratory masks, reliable utensils for the disabled, or refreshable braille displays for image text. Turn 'disability' into 'this ability'.
• Or any other idea you have to hack for social change! Leverage your talent and find solutions to address technology issues facing humanity today.
