Awesome hackathon prizes?

I’ve been to so many hackathons I can’t count anymore. When it comes to prizes, I thought I have seen them all¹ until I saw "Zneakers" in my Twitter feed yesterday. 😍

My question to you is, what are some awesome hackathon prizes you’ve seen (or won)?

  1. Oculus Rifts Arduinos, shirts, socks, drones, etc.

We are group of three hackathon participants, didn’t initially do will in hackathons initially, but in due course have won Microsoft surface book 2, Apple iPad Air + pencil and few smaller prizes across multiple hackathons organised by our organisation! Looking forward to participate more in external hackathons

I'm jelly. Do you use the surface? I always wanted to try one.

Unfortunately, even after 3 years of participating in hackathons, I haven't won a single one of them, so no prizes. But I do have some stickers on my laptop

The grand prize was a mid-week trip (4 days) to New York City (we live in The Netherlands).

Wow! That is pretty awesome. Now I want to know what you built... 🤔
