Trending: German team registers the top speed (again) in Elon Musk’s Hyperloop pod race

Microsoft last night named the winners of its annual Imagine Cup student technology competition, held this year in New York City. A team from Ireland came home with the top prize in the software design category with a project that uses embedded technologies, mobile devices and cloud computing to send a report to a driver or car owner alerting them to erratic or dangerous behavior.

The team from Ireland and other category winners each won a $25,000 prize. Microsoft also launched a three-year, $3 million competitive grant program last night in conjunction with the Imagine Cup competition.

See this Imagine Cup post for a full rundown of the winners and runners-up in all of the categories. The People’s Choice Award, determined by online voting, was won by a team from Bangladesh that created a Windows Phone app to assist the visually impaired.
