Is the overall user experience intuitive? Does the flow make sense?
Technical Strength & Sophistication

Does it actually work? How complete is the product? Could the prototype scale as a real solution with multiple users?
Was the team able to explain their idea and what the prototype actually did? Did the presentation and demo show how their hack has fulfilled the judging criteria? Did the team communicate the essence of why they did what they did and why it was important?
