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.
