Hackathons

I am a huge believer that Hackathons are one of the best ways to contribute to the open source community and push the envelope on research and Innovations. I personally have been to over 20 Hackathons and managed to opensource all my projects because I believe in taking up a challenging problem from the community and the world and solving them.

Example of some opensourced Projects
Text to Virtual Reality (Open-sourced)
This project "VR Storytellers"  was built at the World's largest VR-AR Hackathon - Virtually Reality Hackathon at the MIT Media Lab. The interface convert text (stories) in real time to Virtual Reality Experience (mapping keywords and its descriptions to objects in unity) coupled with a Background score based on the mood of the story.
