The new 2015 SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards feature a number of new award categories that are geared towards or involve hardware and devices, such as "Internet of Things," "Wearable Tech," "Health, Med & BioTech," "Innovative 3-DIY," and "Sustainable Tech," among others. Since the Interactive Innovation Awards are open only to projects or redesigns made in 2014, startups are indeed who I'd like to connect with and who we'd like to hear from! http://sxsw.com/interactive/awards/categories
I'm the SXSW Interactive Awards Coordinator. Also an Actor, Voice Over artist, and Writer.
