What is WebXR?

The WebXR Device API provides access to input and output capabilities commonly associated with Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) hardware like Google’s Daydream, the Oculus Rift, the Samsung Gear VR, the HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

More simply put, it lets you create Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality web sites that you can view with the appropriate hardware like a VR headset or AR-enabled phone.

What happens if my submission is rejected?

You can always reapply once you’ve improved your concept in the ways we have described in the rejection email.

Isn’t 30-days excessively outside the scope of what is commonly understood as a hackathon?

Yes and no. There are no limits to the definition of what a hackathon is or isn’t. It’s all about the impact we’re looking to have here. At this scale, we can have an enormous impact, and so can all of you.

Can I submit more than one concept?

Yes, the more the merrier, but make sure you don't sacrifice quality for quantity.

Who owns the IP of what is created?

You do, and by design since you store everything on GitHub or whichever repository of your choice.
