Hackathon@HKUST (hackUST) was a 24-hr competition with  talents (including students and alumni) from different backgrounds (including software engineers, hardware engineers, business students, designers, and among others) mingled together, transformed creative ideas to real software/hardware prototypes, developed sound business plans, and present ideas with a concrete prototype to a judging panel consisting of faculty members, entrepreneurs, industry experts, representatives from non-government organizations, and others.
