Community Crunch

  • DTU Skylab Diplomvej, 373A Kongens Lyngby, 2800 Denmark (map)

Are you interested in technology helping people with disabilities? Do you want to learn more about how startups work? And most importantly, do you want to use your coding, design, marketing or business experience to solve real-life challenges?

Then join our Community Crunch on Friday 23rd of November at DTU Skylab and help Obital!

Obital is a startup, which develops low cost eye tracking technology with a vision of changing the way people interact with their surroundings. They offer eye tracking capable of running on all newer smart devices. No calibration or additional hardware is required.

This makes their technology one of the most affordable and accessible in the industry, giving eye-tracking features to broader audiences than ever before.

If you are interested in using your skills to help Obital, develop new ideas, learn about how technology helps people, gain hands-on experience, as well as become part of a community, which helps each other grow, then join us and give your take on the following three challenges:

1.      Mobile gaming
The next generation of mobile games takes place in AR or VR, putting new demands on how to interact with this world. How can mobile eye-tracking be used to renew gaming experiences and how can it create a more immersive experience?

2.      Advertising
How can eye-tracking technology be implemented in the advertising industry? When a business starts to measure how and when a person looks at a page or advertisement, it adds valuable data that can be used for optimization.

3.      Healthcare & Rehabilitation
Almost no form of physical disability hits the eyes. How can eye tracking help these people to live a better, freer and more independent life?

The founders of Obital will guide you through the different challenges and provide additional tools to help solve the case.

It is important to emphasize that Community Crunch is based on co-creation. The idea is to gather people with different skills in groups to develop the ideas and create the best solutions. It is not a competition; there will be no winners or prizes at the end – besides beer and pizza.

So, if you are a young professional, student, working with design, software, UX/UI, business or marketing, and you would like to get a break from your usual tasks then sign up here
