Oppo in partnership with hackathon expert HackHub has launched the OPPOHack 2022, an international hackathon that brings together a community of tech enthusiasts and innovators to tackle real-world problems through emerging technologies: Enhanced Visualization, Efficient Computation, and Unhindered Cross-device Connection.
OPPO is driven by the vision to build a world that emphasizes user-centric ubiquitous service experience and one of the ways it is going about doing this is to create a seamless interconnection between people and technology. Participants coming from different backgrounds and expertise will set sail in finding innovative solutions in unhindered cross-device connection as well as user-centric intelligent services in this hackathon catered to global technical talents.
OPPOHack2022 is aligned with OPPO’s brand proposition of ‘Inspiration Ahead’, which encourages technology innovators to utilize technology to solve some of the most pressing issues facing humanity even amid times of uncertainty. Besides giving technology enthusiasts a chance to test their talent with OPPOHack 2022, OPPO has also launched the OPPO Research Institute Innovation Accelerator to discover and support proposals and startups to make a real-world positive impact.
At OPPOHack 2022, participants will get a closer look at the latest updates on ColorOS 12, OPPO’s signature operating system with the latest upgrades on design, connectivity, privacy, and more. One highlight is the PC Connect, creating a seamless interaction between your phone and computer. You can think of it as one brain across multiple screens, a step closer to ubiquity.
OPPOHack believes in the power of technology and teamwork. Joining 12 universities, 20 incubators, and more than 500 individuals around the globe, OPPOHack is the hackathon to collaborate as well as compete to solve the interconnectivity problems of tomorrow.
OPPO said, “As a participant, no matter where you are, our hybrid mode hackathon made joining the event easy. From June to August, there are a series of tech garages that offer the best-in-class concepts and skills you need to get started. For teams entering the final round, they will be getting first-hand developer resources and tools enabling them to create your dream project.
“Most of all, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to network with like-minded individuals, tech experts, and leaders in leading companies. In addition to a total cash prize of $40,000, for winning projects, the chance to have your project invested and applied in the real world is not just a dream.”
