30 hours, 10 teams, 1 winner!

During Laval Virtual, 10 teams competed in a unique event: a 30-hour technology marathon called “Hackathon”! The start was given one day before the show. Each team had to develop a 3D application in real time on an imposed subject. Participants were given advice from VR/AR experts and all the necessary equipment.

Congratulations to the IUT of Tarbes who won this Hackathon!
