Hackathon Winner 2015 (Awarded $10,000)

  • Medical Technology
  • AR / VR Developer
  • C# , Unity3D

Winners of the first USC Center for Body Computing VR Hackathon were Brian Cohn, Dilan Shah and Serhan Ulkumen who created "20/20 Hindsight," a virtual reality experience aiming to show users the effects of retinal myopic degeneration. The target patient group for their product is individuals who have been diagnosed with diabetes, as they are at an increased risk of developing eye diseases that can cause vision impairment and blindness (e.g., retinopathy, cataracts and glaucoma) if they don't have regular eye exams, maintain a steady blood-sugar level, take prescribed medications, follow a healthy diet, exercise regularly and avoid smoking.
