Go down a virtual reality rabbit hole into increasingly strange worlds, re-visit memories through obsolete technologies we’ve used to store and document our past, explore an app helping filmmakers find scientists to ensure “good science” in sci-fi, solve the mystery of a peeping tom with 360 interactive video…

Since 2012, POV has brought together visionary filmmakers and inventive technologists to “re-imagine the documentary for web” in a single weekend. The tenth edition of our non-fiction lab (and second edition in Los Angeles!) POV Hackathon has concluded… Now, spend some time exploring what four teams of hackers — most of whom had never met before participating — created in just one weekend at the CreatorUp!
