Design Terminal, Hungary's national centre for creative industries, is sending five locally-based start-ups to the SXSW Interactive Festival 2015, an incubator for new technologies and digital creativity, in Austin Texas. 

Brewie will show its home brewing machine, Vidzor its interactive and platform-independent online device for making and sharing videos, Notch its three-dimensional movement detector module, Sbrick a smart RC receiver that can operate toys with a smartphone, and Synetiq its brainwave detector, Design Terminal said.

Design Terminal picked the five start-ups from 50 applicants. The jury comprised Veronika Pistyur, managing director of Budapest Bridge; Adam Somlai-Fischer, co-founder of Prezi; and Gyula Feher, co-founder and technology director of Ustream. Some 30,000 participants are expected from 80 countries at this year's SXSW Interactive Festival, slated for March 13-17.
