A team of five students from U of T took the winning prize at SportsHack on November 16, 2014, a competition to develop wearable sports technology. The winning concept from Team Raisins: the Player Tracking System, an app that tracks player locations on a sports field, and displays the data as a heatmap, using cost-effective and efficient technologies.
The idea and pitch earned them a $7,500 cash prize and the chance to work with investors to turn their sports hack into reality.
Team Raisins included a computer science student and some students from U of T Mississauga, visiting as part of the Ciencia Sem Fronteiras (Science Without Borders) program.
