2023 PICO Dev Jam Award Announcement

2023 PICO Dev Jam culminated in a three-month competition, in which more than 600 participants registered from EMEA, North America and Asia regions and the competition received more than 100 submissions in the categories of MR, hand tracking, gaming and non-gaming apps. As opposed to a typical hackathon, PICO Dev Jam also toured universities in Europe and North America including UCLA, UC Berkeley, Stanford, MIT, Univ. of Oxford, Univ. of Cambridge, Goldsmiths, University of London, University of Barcelona, PolyTech Angers, etc., where college students from the end of their undergraduate studies all the way up to doctoral researchers were introduced to innovative XR techniques, SDKs, toolings and ideas.

Individual and team developers from all over the world have presented their solutions to a jury panel of judges from both PICO and other companies in the XR industry including ShapeXR, Amaze VR, Odders Lab, Andromeda Entertainment, and Felix & Paul. Top 1-5 and 4 separate prizes were selected for each region. The cash prize dispatch of 2023 PICO Dev Jam will be handled by Devpost.
