Let's disrupt the future of mobility within a weekend

Do you love your bike, your car, your hoverboard or your wheel shoes? Are you constantly thinking about how to get faster and more convenient from A to B? Do you love coding, little sleep and caffeine? Especially together?

Join us and 100 developers, designers and mobility enthusiasts to find new ways to combine mobility and tech in urban and rural areas worldwide. Presented by Hackerstolz, we aim to let your ideas take shape and help to transform them into first digital prototypes that will inspire the mobility industry - all at one weekend of fun, food and code lines at Spielfeld Digital Hub in Berlin, December 2-4.

Mobility{hacks} is open to all individual developers, designers and mobility enthusiasts as well as teams up to five members. All participants need to bring their own laptops and software tools and we will provide you with  food, snacks, beverage, table-top space, power and wifi. You will be given the chance to present your prototypes in front of an expert jury and win cash and other prizes.

Judging Criteria

  • Overall (20%)
    Your overall opinion of the project, in every aspect important to you.
  • Innovation (20%)
    Ask yourself: Is this the future of mobility? And would you use this project? Has it a new value for its customers and can it stand the open market?
  • Theme (10%)
    This category represents how well the project conforms with the theme, if it has great and new value for mobility.
  • Design (10%)
    Form follows function, but the User Experience is important nevertheless.
  • Execution (20%)
    The reality check. Is this something working, something demonstrated live. How well did the team translate their idea into reality over the course of the hackathon? We will perform code audits to validate this.
  • Coolness (10%)
    How fun is this project? Is it just a new plugin for Excel or is it so charming you can’t stop using it?
  • Demonstration (10%)
    The pitch is the time to shine. Did the hackers convience you with their energy and did you get a clear picture of their vision? How good was their pitch, was it chaotic and did they mumble, or was it a great presentation?
