After an intensive preparation day at EPFL, the three teams are on their way to Hong Kong for what promises to be a very exciting journey in the Greater China innovation eco-system!
The 2nd milestone of CHIC was held on labour day! The 3 teams presented their progress in front of their colleagues and experts from the different schools involved in the project (EPFL, UNIL and ecal). You can find out what the teams have achieved in 10 weeks of intensive work by clicking on the logos below. All teams had demos (e.g., fimi).
You can also find the PCB files for each team on GitHub:
Congratulations to all teams!
Today we had the first reunion of all the teams since the kick-off week-end. Each team had 15 minutes to present the progress of their project, including the problem statement, the business model, the sketches and rendering, technical solutions, etc. All three teams did extremely well! You can look at their presentations below.

After quite some brainstorming and horse trading the participants to CHIC came up with 3 great projects: an intelligent baby bottle, a water environmental monitoring device and a device to connect with the elder generation. Stay tuned for the development of these ideas into prototypes!
