The Next-Gen Games In Physical Spaces Challenge at Northeastern’s IoT Open Innovation Lab was held in the late Spring and Summer of 2018.
John Redding, Solvation’s CEO, was contacted by the Lab and selected for the Evaluators Panel to judge "Challenge" submissions.
The Lab believes the Evaluators Panel may be one of the best such panels in history.
The Challenge’s mission was to identify high-quality game concepts involving a combo of IoT and (Mobile) Gaming - combined with Virtual or Augmented Reality.

What is a Solvathon?
Research has shown that a team approach to problem solving is more effective than solving problems or creating new products on one’s own. A Solvathon is a team of participants, under the structure of Solvation, who work together to solve an existing problem or create new ventures in innovative and creative ways. A Solvathon may be located anywhere in the world, thereby engaging a large and diverse community of creative thinkers in a joint venture.
How does a Solvathon™ work?
A Solvathon is different from a Hackathon in that it provides a pre-packaged structure that allows registered participants to:
Receive “About-Right℠” compensation based on value creation determined by a compensation committee elected by those whose contributions places them in the top 25% of the value creators. The other participants may possibly receive other rewards such as invitations to participate in follow-on Solvathons, mentoring, certificates of achievement, letters of recommendation and other desirable recognitions. The rewards will vary from Solvathon to Solvathon.
