Over the weekend of Space App Challenge 2014, some 671 space projects were born to answer 54 challenges over 95 locations - that is without counting the 75 virtual project's physical location! Wow. The 54 challenges were in 5 themes: Technology in Space, Human Space Flight, Asteroids, Earth Watch and Robotics.
It sure was hard to pick a challenge to do out of the many, but when the clock strike 9 in the UK, Exoskn - an open source space suit project was born in the virtual location to answer to Kennedy Space Center's space wearable challenge, alongside 28 more projects across the world. It was one of the 75 virtual projects that got nominated for global judging but that wasn't the end. It's now making an open call for participants, looking to expand and keep moving forward with wearable electronic tinkerers, fashion designers, material scientist... name your role and skills!
Here is where it got to after 36 hours (excuse the speaker, she hasn't really got any clear mind to speak by then...) :
