We bring you REBOOT 2.0, a hackathon conducted by IEEE RAS, VIT during the month of March. This hackathon has an optimized duration of 36 hours which is chosen in order to maximise creativity, competitiveness and efficiency.
The main purpose of REBOOT is to introduce freshers to the world of hacks and foster creativity and a sense of innovation amongst students to bring out the best in them. It also serves as an important platform for every student to make them realise their true potential and the technical field that will appeal to them the most. With the added advantage of crowd-driven ideation, students can now move fast and get ahead of the competition. These projects are the practical application of what students learn every day and some can also lead to startups for which we provide a strong platform for.
To summarise it all, REBOOT provides the necessary platform for future innovators and entrepreneurs. We encourage freshers to come and participate along with their seniors and experts from VIT and competitors from other colleges as well.
Reboot is a hackathon conducted by IEEE RAS, VIT during the month of March. Reboot is a major event in VIT. This hackathon occurs each year in Vellore Institute of technology, Vellore. This hackathon has major aggregations and recognitions. This hackathon has a duration of 36 hours. This optimized duration of 36 hours is chosen in order to maximise creativity, competitiveness and efficiency.
No. You do not have to pay anything to anyone to register yourself for any Hackathon on Skillenza.
If you love to code, you are more than welcome to participate in the Hackathon.
You have to develop the application on your local system and submit it on Skilllenza in tar/zip file format along with instructions to run the application and source code.
The entire idea need not be fully implemented however, the submission should be functional so that it can be reviewed by the judges.
You have to develop the entire software application on your local system and submit it on Skillenza in tar/zip file format along with instructions to run the application and source code.
No, one does not need to be logged in on Skillenza or be online for the entire duration. You can develop the application on your local system based on the given themes and then submit it on Skillenza, on the specific challenge page.
There is no restriction to use any language, technology stack, or libraries. You can use any of them to create a web/mobile application.
If you want you can submit a small presentation or video that demos your submission, however, it’s not mandatory, and only good to have. In case you are one of the winners, you might be invited to demo your application at a physical event, details of which will be shared with sufficient advance notice.
Yes, it’s absolutely fine to submit just the prototype. If you use any database like MySQL or PostgresSQL you can also submit a database dump along with your submission. However, you are allowed to submit just the prototype.
Yes, all team members can log in from their account and do application submission on Skillenza.
The developer/developers of the web/mobile application will have all rights and own the IP of the product. However, all code needs to be in public domain (open source) so that it can be evaluated by the judges.
1)Click on the Register button.
2)Fill up the required details and submit.
3)Now you will have 3 stages:
a)More About You: Fill in your hostel details and registration number.These details are mandatory.
b)Team Formation:Form up your team.
c)Idea Submission:Submit your idea in PDF format for evaluation.
1) Career counseling Chatbot for high school students
We want to develop a chatbot for science students who intend on pursuing engineering in the future. The chatbot will help them clear their doubts related to engineering degree/branches, competitive exams like JEE/BITSAT/VITEEE and colleges like IITs/NITs/BITs. Additional features like rank prediction, best colleges for me and etc can be added accordingly to the user’s needs.
2) VR simulation for patient education about glaucoma and ARMD
We need to design a VR based simulation for explaining the patients (by letting them experience) about how their eyesight is affected in glaucoma and ARMD and how it gets deteriorated with the progression of the disease along with an AI-based network which also shows them about the disease process when they select the option to know about the disease and the treatment
3) Eye surgery practice module. All eye surgeons should practice surgery before they start the surgery. The commercially available practice models are very costly 200 dollars for each.
We want you to design an eyeball model (whose dimensions will be given) using a rubber-like material. The anterior surface should be transparent/ translucent to see the inside. This will help all surgeons in practicing surgery.
4) During retina surgery while operating in the periphery the surgeon needs to dip the periphery to visualize the peripheral retina and do laser, as the surgeon’s hands are occupied with doing laser we depend on the sister, who indent not where or how we want them to indent.
We would like you to design an instrument that can be fixed to biom or the microscope that helps us in indenting the retina during surgery which can be controlled by the surgeon.
5) Rhexis instrument for complicated cases of cataract.
A handle with a button on pressing opens as a loop with a blade underside to make CCC in one go.
6) Difficulty in measuring IOL decentration post-operatively - degree and direction
Have an objective way of measuring decentration using slit lamp image which can be analyzed by a software.
7) Device for cortex aspiration of the small pupil. In a small pupil, it is very difficult to visualize the cortex present behind the pupil for aspiration and all present method depends on blind aspiration or using pupil expansion devices
Can we have a device which can aspirate the cortex depending on the bag structure instead of expanding the pupil.
8) Light pipe optical fiber plays a key role in retina surgery as an endo illuminator, also used extensively as an accessory tool in cornea surgery, light source is xenon / led from the machine the external light source is available however still expensive
Looking at smartphone led light-based optical fiber light sources that will be extremely low cost and portable.
9) For intraocular foreign body removal, we have endo magnets separately and forceps separately
It will be good if we have a magnet that can also function as forceps using a switch
