It’s so easy for mobile development to fall into a rut: how many apps out there all seem like they’re just variations on the same thing, few offering much unique that helps them stand out from the crowd? Maybe you update your app every once in a while to deliver support for whatever new features the platform picks up with its latest release, but so does everybody else. In an effort to help push devs to to reach beyond “good enough” and create software that really innovates, inspires, and highlights the best of what Android can do, Google’s announcing its new Android Experiments I/O Challenge, rewarding the most creative developers it can find.

There are lots of ways a project can hope to succeed at the Android Experiments I/O Challenge, from making great use of Android’s latest capabilities, to offering a stunning UI that’s all its own, to being a beacon of open source inspiration within the dev community.

From now through April 13, Google will be accepting applications, and will ultimately hook the top three devs up with free trips to this year’s Google I/O conference. Beyond that, the next-best five devs will score themselves free Nexus 6P handsets.

Past Android Experiments projects have included that awesome Android-powered smart mirror we checked out early last month.
