Hackathon

24 June, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 26 June, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

£10

This is the first hackathon to extend and augment the senses. Applicants must register by midnight on the 29th May and if you don’t want to apply, I’m sure there’ll be a kicking hashtag to follow.

The idea is to bring together makers from a variety of backgrounds and provide them with a weekend’s worth of time and space to develop new devices and applications that hack, expand and augment the senses.

The tools we’ll be using include some seriously cool technologies, like Brain-Computer Interfaces, virtual, and augmented reality headsets, sensors, actuators, microcontrollers, and even cardboard boxes! BYOD too!

The vision is that by exploring perceptual hacking we can expand the scope of human experience. We’ll definitely learn a great deal, and who knows, we might just build something amazing along the way.
