The web interface.
We wanted to support both sponsors and fans of athletes and provide them a more immersive sports experience.
What it does
You can challenge the athletes to fulfill a task (in exchange for money) which might not necessarily be to their advantage. Like this you are able to influence the competition based on your personal gusto.
How we built it
The athlete carries a smartphone that notifies him of new challenges, and allows him or her to accept or decline them. The fans and sponsors use a web interface to pose the challenges.
Challenges we ran into
We could have used more sample data.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We built a distributed real-time system.
What we learned
That we need to invest more time in design.
What's next for Challenge the Skiers
Voice-based interactions of the athletes and enabling the web interface for mobile devices.
