It was a busy week for MedTech Boston with our Editor in Chief speaking at SXSW Interactive, but we did manage (albeit belatedly–sorry!) to tabulate the judges scores for the second qualifying round of the Google Glass Challenge! Those results have been uploaded to the Official Results Page and we’re happy to announce the three semi-finalists.
Submissions were judged by a panel of renowned clinicians and technical experts, including the White House Innovation Fellows and MIT H@cking Medicine. Ideas were judged primarily on their clinical impact and practicality.
Without further ado, here are the three semi-finalists of round two, who will join the four from round 1 and the winners of round 3 in our “Pitch-Off” to be held in April. Semi-finalists are listed in order of their combined total score:
Thanks to everyone who submitted ideas and congratulations to all the winners! Don’t forget, there’s still two days to submit your ideas for round 3, which ends on March 22. Just click here http://medtechboston.medstro.com/submit-ggchallenge/ to submit your idea today!
