Games, virtual reality, news aggregators, e-commerce, and even a development library built on top of LeapJS – these were just a few of the cool projects we saw at last month’s #ATXHack2014. Working with Compare Metrics, we brought together about 25 developers, hackers, and designers to build prototypes of next-generation interfaces.

The finalists are being showcased at a swanky event during the SXSW 2014, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share a few of the weekend’s highlights. Stay tuned for more!
