Noon - 10PM
Room: New CS 120 + 115
Stony Brook University
Internships at Cemtrex (if eligible)
Your Project Could be in the Smartdesk
Leap Motion Controllers
And Tons of Other Swag
Cemtrex is a rapidly expanding Long Island based technology company. We're focused on delivering a wide range of innovative technologies, including AR/VR, IoT and wearable solutions for both consumer and industrial applications.
Our CEO, Saagar Govil, is a Stony Brook alumni, making this event a very personal for our company. We're looking forward to partnering with Stony Brook and seeing the innovation the students provide.
This coding challenge is inspired by our upcoming Smartdesk. The Smartdesk integrates Leap Motion's hand tracking technology, providing users a groundbreaking way to engage and control content. What better way to celebrate and explore this technology than hosting a gaming coding challenge?
You can download the schedule here.
Only Stony Brook students are eligible to enroll. We’ll accept both graduate and undergraduate students.
There's no deadline, but we’ll cut off registration once our space limitations are met (approximately 36 students).
Each team will program a videogame that leverages Leap Motion's hand tracking technology. You can reimagine a retro game or create one of your own.
If you're looking for some inspiration, we would suggest reimaginging games like:
You can, but use caution. First of all, ten hours doesn’t leave you a lot of time to flesh out more complex concepts and games. Secondly, since there’s a chance to feature your game in our Smartdesk, we would want to avoid copyright issues that come with using another game’s characters and ideas.
If you have a team, just let us know when you register. If you don’t have a team, don’t worry—we’ll help you build teams at the beginning of the event.
There will be 3 students per team.
You do. After winners are selected some may have the opportunity to feature their project in the Cemtrex Smartdesk, in which case they will need to transfer ownership to Cemtrex. These students will be credited in full for the project featured in our Smartdesk.
We will provide enough PCs and Leap Controllers so each team has one. We strongly recommend each team member brings their own computer so you can streamline your team coding. Download a list of recommended installed software here.
The primary software will be the Leap Motion software and Unity. We have also included a list of recommended programs to install here.
