A great group of designers, engineers and creative thinkers with a wide variety of skills and experience came together to hack the boundaries of physical and cyber reality at the Make Me++ Hackathon. Their challenge was to create new applications for wearable devices, sensors, and the emerging “Internet of Things.”
We were inspired by the innovative projects that the eleven hackathon teams developed and prototyped over a short span of two days. These projects explored and highlighted the contemporary potential of Bill Mitchell's ideas from Me++: The Cyborg Self and The Networked City.
The teams worked with an awesome toolbox containing micro-controllers, sensors that sense bio signals and environmental changes, and other raw materials, sponsored by our generous partners at Intel and FormLabs.
