Why food?

How much space for innovation lies in food?

How can you create awesome concepts at this hackathon?

Here you will find different ideas for inspiration about how broad the field of the food industry is. There is an unlimted amount of potential to be unlocked during the hackathon!

Food Delivery

Delivery

Getting fresh food to consumers in the fastest way possible allows us to have the greatest experience in the richness and freshness of what our planet has to offer. Of course, this is a huge challenge for farmers, delivery services and other stakeholders in the food supply chain. Get ready for 7 billion people wanting to have a good diary.

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Food Intelligence

No idea what to cook today? But you know how to build deep neural networks? Why don't you build your own recipe generator with deep learning? Go crack the code!

Digital Camera

Digitalization

Wouldn‘t it be great if we knew more about every detail we eat? Starting from the soil our vegetables have grown, to the farming conditions all over to what molecules are actually inside. Wouldn't it be great for us to know what we still have to eat today and what ingredients we should not eat anymore?

Social Network

Social Foodia

Never has humanity been so thankful to get instagram from all friends about their special dinner, which is most of the time some ordinary hamburger or salad. Are you capable of come up with something better than a collective mass-sharing of food pics?

UX/UI Palette

Design

When it comes to designing food, chefs from all over the world come up with the most creative ideas. What if technology helps us create new designs with existing food ressources? Fun fact: there was a project with 3D-printed cookies made from flour worms. A high protein insect delicacy.

Map integration

Restaurant Finding

Could you invent a new way of discovering better places to get better food for less money? Or maybe you could find more personalized ways for our unique taste?

Localization

Hyperlocalization

Why do we eat apples from the other side of the globe when they grow on trees outside our city? Please do something, this is ridiculous!

Augmented Reality

Preparation

Ever touched a screen with in dough dripping fingers, because you needed to see your recipe app? Many people have those and similar problems everyday and our technology is not prepared for this – yet. What if we go much further than just thinking about how to communicate processing steps for preparation, but invent systems and principles for everyday problems which are so simple, every user can understand?

Smart Phone

Your unique idea

I bet you can come up with something so much more innovative than we do! Go ahead and sign up!
