Indigenous Labs Wins 2021 Abuja Tech Friday Hackathon

Indigenous Labs have emerged first place winner of the 2021 Abuja Tech Friday Hackathon organised by Art Tech District (ATD) in collaboration with the Civic Innovation Lab (Civicilab).

This hackathon is an opportunity for Developers, Tech Startups, Tech enthusiasts and Undergraduates (in Universities across Nigeria) to propose and build software solutions to determine the best way to walk through museum exhibitions using AR (Augmented Reality) or VR (Virtual Reality) or a Web Application, with the aim of synchronizing Nigerian Art and History with digital solutions.

The maiden edition of the Abuja Tech Friday is a series of hackathons to create a platform for “Using Technology To Tell Nigerian History” and will be called the MUSEUMHACK.

Indigenous Labs – proud lovers of culture whose solution enabled uploads, updates, and registration processes; a full system in one. Their solution leverages on providing traction and no-contact experiences which enables navigation in, around and out of the museum-freely, truly built for times like this. They also demonstrated how museums can become the go-to for teaching kids history and empowering institutions. The fact that these things can be achieved using web links and not an application was another factor that distinguished this team of two.

Indigenous Labs receive the grand prize of ₦500,000 seed fund for further development of the solution.
