You're a mad scientist 👨‍🔬 👩‍🔬 & just cannot RESIST the urge to create something new 🧪🧪. That's when you were struck by divine inspiration :


"A gadget! I need to create gadgets! Ev.. Everyone is using them! I need to create my own GENIUS invention.. I need to have a gadgeeeeeeet with my NAME on it!!!". 

As you start throwing fourniture around the room, and assemble several mismatched pieces together with your magnet-o-XX, the room becomes a mess. Books, research sketches, etc are wildly spread around... Heck! You even destroyed the walls to extract more material to experiment with!!

But there it is, on your special Assembly Desk, the work was done. In tears, you pick up the gadget you built & decide to use it for the first time..... (silence).

Did it work? Did it fail? Is it useful? Is it useless? Who knows.. For now, the story ends here.

📢 Challenge: Recreate the scene described above & Build the wearable GADGET of the scientists dreams


🛠️ Build constraints: 🛠️ 


For this contest, we wanted to try something new and very creative:
Use the story as a base inspiration to immerse yourself in the context. Everything around it can be fully customised. You can even adapt the storyline a bit if you want, as long as it keeps & follows the main narrative.  

The end result should include some animations to represent the emotions the Scientist went through at least. At best, you would be able to recreate the entire scene - animated from start to finish!

Creativity will be rewarded! 

The representation needs to fit within a 2x2 plot sized build (maximum)
- Max. polycount: 40k
- Height limit: 46m
- File Size Limit: 24mb

Time to create a place where the DAO can strategize!! 

The main idea is to create a space for hosting Decentraland in-world DAO Town Halls and other DAO events. The scene should be a place for encouraging collaboration and discussion amongst DAO members, it should have plenty of space for people to congregate and interact individually and collectively.

The builds in this contest will be transferred over to the facilitation squad who will use those as HQs for future in world DCL Townhalls!!

Some ideas / features that would be great:
-Features that allow for presentation of ideas or proposals, such as a podium, a stage, projector screen, etc.
-Would be good to have one main room and other(s) for chilling, brainstorming, or having meetings.
-Visually attractive and well signaled for users that don’t usually attend to DAO meetings.
-Board with important dates or next meetings to be held in that place

Plot size (max): 
- 3x3 plot size max

Visual guidelines:
-Optimized for performance to minimize lag and ensure a smooth experience for all users.
- Completely free 

Architectural guidelines:
- Government or coworking building (modern or historical).
-Designed to accommodate a large number of users and allow for easy navigation.
-2 floors as maximum

Presentation constraints:

The asset presentation is very flexible, but it needs to:
1. Present the asset from all sides
2. Include a section of the presentation where you can see the asset deployed in Decentraland
Note: You can create cinematic trailers, renders, etc. in any way you want as long as you respect the 2 rules above

You're a mad scientist 👨‍🔬 👩‍🔬 & just cannot RESIST the urge to create something new 🧪🧪. That's when you were struck by divine inspiration :


"A gadget! I need to create gadgets! Ev.. Everyone is using them! I need to create my own GENIUS invention.. I need to have a gadgeeeeeeet with my NAME on it!!!". 

As you start throwing fourniture around the room, and assemble several mismatched pieces together with your magnet-o-XX, the room becomes a mess. Books, research sketches, etc are wildly spread around... Heck! You even destroyed the walls to extract more material to experiment with!!

But there it is, on your special Assembly Desk, the work was done. In tears, you pick up the gadget you built & decide to use it for the first time..... (silence).

Did it work? Did it fail? Is it useful? Is it useless? Who knows.. For now, the story ends here.

📢 Challenge: Recreate the scene described above & Build the wearable GADGET of the scientists dreams


🛠️ Build constraints: 🛠️ 


For this contest, we wanted to try something new and very creative:
Use the story as a base inspiration to immerse yourself in the context. Everything around it can be fully customised. You can even adapt the storyline a bit if you want, as long as it keeps & follows the main narrative.  

The end result should include some animations to represent the emotions the Scientist went through at least. At best, you would be able to recreate the entire scene - animated from start to finish!

Creativity will be rewarded! 

The representation needs to fit within a 2x2 plot sized build (maximum)
- Max. polycount: 40k
- Height limit: 46m
- File Size Limit: 24mb

Time to create a place where the DAO can strategize!! 

The main idea is to create a space for hosting Decentraland in-world DAO Town Halls and other DAO events. The scene should be a place for encouraging collaboration and discussion amongst DAO members, it should have plenty of space for people to congregate and interact individually and collectively.

The builds in this contest will be transferred over to the facilitation squad who will use those as HQs for future in world DCL Townhalls!!

Some ideas / features that would be great:
-Features that allow for presentation of ideas or proposals, such as a podium, a stage, projector screen, etc.
-Would be good to have one main room and other(s) for chilling, brainstorming, or having meetings.
-Visually attractive and well signaled for users that don’t usually attend to DAO meetings.
-Board with important dates or next meetings to be held in that place

Plot size (max): 
- 3x3 plot size max

Visual guidelines:
-Optimized for performance to minimize lag and ensure a smooth experience for all users.
- Completely free 

Architectural guidelines:
- Government or coworking building (modern or historical).
-Designed to accommodate a large number of users and allow for easy navigation.
-2 floors as maximum

Presentation constraints:

The asset presentation is very flexible, but it needs to:
1. Present the asset from all sides
2. Include a section of the presentation where you can see the asset deployed in Decentraland
Note: You can create cinematic trailers, renders, etc. in any way you want as long as you respect the 2 rules above
