In this batch of nonfiction-based digital prototypes from POV Hackathon 3 (April 13-14, 2013), you’ll place yourself between two foot soldiers on opposite sides of a war-ravaged border, you’ll see how at-risk refugees might connect with lawyers using ubiquitous cell phones, you’ll trace the impact of the largest dam removal in United States history through interactive video, you’ll use your smartphone to play a public game that seeks to end homelessness, and you’ll contribute your sexual milestones to a web app that presents a nuanced view of virginity.

The prototypes were made in 32 hours, and all are now online to explore.

POV Hackathon 4 will take place from July 27 to 28, 2013, in New York City. Apply by Friday, May 31, at midnight Eastern Time.
