How technically impressive was the hack? Was the technical problem the team tackled difficult? Did it use a particularly clever technique or did it use many different components? Did the technology involved make you go "Wow"?
Did the team put thought into the user experience? How well designed is the interface? For a hardware project, it might be more about how good the human-computer interaction is (e.g. is it easy to use or does it use a cool interface?).
Does the hack work? Did the team achieve everything they wanted?
Did the team stretch themselves? Did they try to learn something new? What kind of projects have they worked on before? For an team that typically does VR and tries mobile, their exploration should be rewarded.
