    Is it something new? Have you never seen an idea like this before? Does it strike you as being original? Does the project go beyond traditional rules, patterns, and/or definitions? Is the new idea meaningful?
  • Technical Difficulty
    Does the project require skill to assemble (and is mostly assembled)? Does the project demonstrate a lot of thought? Were multiple devices/APIs meaningfully used as part of the project?
  • Usability/Quality
    How close is the project to being usable/final project? Is the project usable for many (different) people? How complete is the project?
  • Design
    How aesthetically pleasing is the project? Did thought go into project design? Does the project combine quality design with quantitative complexity?
  • Impact/Viability
    Would this help improve quality of life? Is this something the participants are interested in pursuing further? Does the project consider a broader world view?
