Red Bull Creation is a 72 hour creative competition that annually invites the countries best and brightest makers, hackers, and inventors to innovate around a “secret topic”. In 2014, the Red Bull Creation final event will be making the move to an exciting new host location- Detroit, MI.

2014 Qualifier Theme

Identify a specific need in your community, or something you think could be improved, and propose a solution.  It could be an idea that makes the world a better place, or if nothing else, a more fun and interesting place.


  • This qualifier is about conceptualization and ideation.  You don’t have to actually physically build the project this year.
  • That being said, this project has to be achievable.  Please address how you would actually create something like this in the real world, and prove that you could.
  • Create a video (no more than 3 minutes) addressing who you are, what the issue is, and how you would propose tackling something like this. You can use models, 3d renderings, animations, or other digital tools within the video to help state your case.
