Intel’s Make It Wearable Challenge opens for submissions

The Intel’s Make It Wearable Challenge is calling for innovative and feasible product ideas for devices, clothing and accessories that are attached or worn on the body. 

The ideas will compete in the new Development Track of the ‘Make it Wearable’ programme which seeks concepts that push the limits of what’s possible, balancing creativity with execution. Ideas should incorporate and be enhanced by computer or advanced electronics that are based on Intel technology.

Candidates must submit a proposal and pitch a two-minute video on the product, the business case and core technology requirements. Finalist teams will enter the incubation process where they will create a refined design and business plan. Winners will receive a grand prize of $500,000, mentorship and incubation involving Lean Startup education from UC Berkeley, and a personal story featured online. The second and third place finalists will win $200,00 and $100,000, respectively, while ten finalists will be allotted $50,000.
