It is definitely possible to launch a startup in 54 hours. Companies like Foodspotting, Rumgr, Planely, Triplingo, and others have come out of Startup Weekends and gone on to get additional funding or eventually sold into larger companies.
At the very least, it is a good place to gather ideas, try out new APIs and hardware, and find team members who may also be interested in trying out something new.
