The competition starts in xy, and the winners are announced during a big startup event held simultaneously in Los Angeles, Singapore, and Helsinki. Competitors can participate in up to three different categories :

1. Best Idea is created by any visionary who comes up with an idea. 

2. Best Demo requires the device and coding for creating and showcasing a fully functional demo together with Pall0 developer kit and developer software.


3. People's Choice is selected by users on social media. The top 30 best ideas will be selected to participate in public pitch sessions, and the social media audience will vote for the winner. (Fall 2022)

We will accept new competitors throughout the year. The deadline for all new competitors is October 30, 2022. The Jury includes top level and influential professionals from around the world.

Create an idea or demo in these four business areas

Video Game
Creative Agency
Science Class

All teams have a chance to get their idea either sold to the device manufacturer or form a license fee-based business model with them. 


  1. Ideas are faster to generate and have the potential for early-stage consultation prizes.

  2. Demo development requires more effort, but can have potential funding earlier.

  3. Ready-made products require more preliminary work, yet business model agreements have the potential to produce a profit from the day one of the release. 


The goal is to create ideas to digitalize and/or gamify wellbeing or services in the health related sector. There are limitless possibilities to create a concept that leads to a  happier and healthier lifestyle.




You can represent a software company, be an individual engineer, or a creative artist. With our model everyone with a great idea can enter this global contest and create a successful future.

Data can be connected through API to third party interface (games, online platforms, other device interfaces)

The device can be covered with various accessories to make it into a bigger ball, it can be attached to a keychain or stuffed inside a plushie. It truly has limitless possibilities. 


The Pall0 Device Starts a New Responsible Digitalization

We have developed this device to make a better world. We have enhanced the capabilities to scan for potential cancer cells. We want to give all online players incentives in exchange for physical movement. We want to take all sports and activities online with a simple device that uses no interface. We will revolutionize digitalization and gamification. You can be part of it with your own idea.


This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to engage in a meaningful, responsible, and sustainable development. As a result there are opportunities to make good income or more...

What are the requirements for the ideas

All ideas have to use more than one of Pall0's hardware features. To understand the capabilities of the hardware you must learn all the functions of the device. This open-source hardware is the most sophisticated device to measure all types of movement and to interact with the user and/or with other devices. 

Only the sky is the limit of your imagination when using the device and its features. Visualize it as a new smartphone. The ideas and applications you create are just like smartphone applications. In this case Pall0 is the “smartphone” and your ideas are the applications.


Check out some examples of ideas that are already in the process of being executed. We want you to be inspired as much as we are. Now is a chance to create something that really has an impact on many lives for years to come!
