Imagine apps for the computer of the future

Creative immersion by Sprout

With its latest innovation, HP is giving you the chance to work on its next-gen computer – the Sprout. All you need to do is think up future apps for the Sprout, and you could be in with a chance of winning trips to California or HP computers!

Are you a student or young graduate?  Then come and take part in HP's major revolution! With its new take on the PC, HP's aim is to transform how you work, create, design, and more!

The Sprout is a new immersive take on computing that will astound you with its range of features, including a graphics tablet, projector and 3D scanner – the perfect inspiration for creating a whole host of new Sprout apps! 

Your mission

Imagine your Sprout app

Build a team of 2 or 3 people with complementary skills and dream up your future Sprout app! Use the Sprout's features (including a graphic tablet, 3D scanner, projector and touch screen) to imagine new apps for this immersive computer and rethink the way you work and learn. 

Present your idea in 3-5 slides and submit it via your team space. The best ideas will be developed into real apps. If you don't know how to develop apps, then no worries – our coaches will be there to help you with your project. 

Let your imagination run wild – the possibilities are endless, including apps for education, for professionals, cultural apps, artistic apps, and more. The best ideas will be developed into real apps – and who knows, maybe they'll be some of the best on the Sprout Marketplace!
