With more than a decade of experience, we have a proven track record of crowdsourcing innovation solutions from the world’s smartest people, who compete to provide ideas and solutions to important business, social, policy, scientific, and technical challenges.

Our client desires a technology that can detect seen and unseen anomalies, such as hail damage, on asphalt shingle roofs. The technology must have the capacity to be made portable to the extent that a person could easily carry it up a ladder to a house roof. A written proposal and experimental proof-of-concept data is required and, if requested by the client, delivery of a working prototype.
$75,000 is available for this reduction-to-practice challenge.
