Visa UX Hackathon (video)

On Thursday Visa Europe and Monitise Create hosted a joint UX Hackathon, which saw developers, designers, and engineers from both companies challenged with a very simple brief: "make personal payments more awesome". And they were given 7 hours in which to do it. The rules of hack days are essentially that there aren’t any rules – Teams just have to use their imaginations to create solutions free of real-world limitations and restrictions. It represents an entirely new way of working for both organisations, and produced some fantastic ideas and fascinating approaches. We live-tweeted throughout the day and had a film crew on hand to capture the event.
