It’s the final week of the C-Prize competition!! On Friday we got thrown in the shark tank and had to present our idea, progress and vision to a group of judges. I say shark tank, but the judges were all lovely and super friendly!

The week prior to the presentation we practiced and tweaked slides and practiced some more and we believe it paid off! We dressed up in suits so we felt like a hundred bucks, and I do believe it was the best run out of all our practice runs!

FallCast is a wearable technology that we are developing as part of the C-Prize competition. We aim to use this wearable to improve predictions of when a person is likely to fall, providing an opportunity to intervene before an injury occurs.

This coming Friday (1 December) we’ll be heading back to AUT Millennium for the Grand Prize evening. It’s a cocktail event and we’re told there will be media, panels, interviews — the works!

We’re pretty excited! While we’d love to win of course, we’re up against some tough competition and all of the teams deserve to win. Good luck to all and we’ll see you there!
