UIST Student Innovation Contest 2015 : Animatronics!
Please register by July 21st, 2015, to participate in the contest. For more details including the theme of the contest, please visit the following website: http://tinyurl.com/uistsic2015details


Pre-Selection Criteria: Organizers will select a maximum of 30 teams judging your descriptions and image links by the following criteria: complexity of idea, time and resources required to build, appropriateness for high school animatronics users, creativity of idea, and usefulness of idea.

Team Size: The minimum team size is 1; maximum is 4.

Team Composition: An individual student cannot be part of multiple teams.

Eligibility Requirement: You must be a student to participate in the contest. Students of all levels (High School, Bachelor's, Master's, PhD) are encouraged to participate. International students are welcome.

Registration Requirement: You must register for the contest and submit your idea and image link. If your team is accepted, at least one of your team members MUST register for the conference by August 20th. This is for three reasons: 1) You have to demo your idea, 2)  You have to claim your prizes, and 3) UIST is an awesome conference.

Demo Ideas: During the contest voting period, teams will be allowed to demo one idea. Different demos of the same idea are permitted.

Hardware Provided: Each team will receive one puppet, 2 large servos, and one small servo. We will provide files for 3D printing servo brackets; if you do not have access to a 3D printer, we can include some parts in your kit. You must bring the provided hardware for the contest demo, as no additional hardware will be provided.

Additional Equipment: Teams must bring supporting computers and hardware to run their demos. No equipment will be handed out at UIST.


Innovation comes in many forms, so we've decided to award 1st and 2nd place prizes in the three categories below:
Best Hardware Innovation
Best Software Innovation
People's Choice
The "Best Hardware Innovation" and "Best Software Innovation" category winners will be selected by the judges. The third category of "People's Choice" will be decided by UIST Conference attendees voting for their favorite projects.
We reserve the right to change the award structure based on a number of factors, such as (and not limited to) the number of participating teams.
