The jury has been hard at work evaluating the apps we’ve received for the Vasaloppet Challenge. The evaluation criteria were based upon the following criteria:
The first place prize goes to:
Malin Tviksta who suggested an application that measures
the heart rate, calories burned, etc. which could be totaled for participants in the Vasaloppet.
This total could then be converted in a monetary value that sponsors could then donate
to a specified charity.
The second prize winner is Jan Almkvist with his idea for an application that helps a skier before, during and after a race with everything from training, competition and the practical details of the Vasaloppet area, between the cities of Sälen and Mora including hotels, restaurants, ski tracks, etc.
Third prize goes to Jonas Braam who suggested taking an existing Vasaloppet app and making it hands-free. By incorporating voice recognition and text-to-speech skiers could use the app without having to pick up their phones.
