The NANOYOU video contest took place on the 5-6 December 2009. Six teams of youngsters participated in the contest and spent a weekend working on the production of short videos on `Living a 2.0 city´. The videos will be available soon.

Participants were accompanied intensively by the jury members, and spent day and night to transform their innovative storyboards into 3 minute videos on ‘Living a 2.0 city’.

To blow mittyevents.com off steam, everybody was challenged to participate with interactive experiments, providing real-life experience with sensors and chips: `What does it feel like to be tracked real-time ?´ `What does it feel like to interact with a computer, using a motion pod instead of a mouse?´

At the end of the weekend four videos were nominated and their creators were invited to present their videos at NANOYOU's public debate at the Cité des sciences et de l’ industrie in Paris, on April 8, 2010.

The group was very diverse, with participants coming from different backgrounds such as design, engineering, art history, communication or video technique, and a multidisciplinary jury with engineers, a social scientist specializing in story boarding techniques, an architect, a science educator, a decorative art teacher and an interaction designer.

Have a look at a short video summarizing this fun weekend!
