Seattle Wearables Hackathon

*** IMPORTANT: Please register for this event at http://www.wearableshackathon.com/.

The Seattle Wearables Hackathon is more of a traditional hackathon in that we'll just focus on having fun, building cool stuff, and not worrying about business models (though you're completely free to work on a biz model if you want to). There won't be a first-second-third place, but we'll have time to share/present what we've built at the end and will have some fun prizes. We also have a pre-event scheduled for July 10 at 6pm.

More information is available at http://www.wearableshackathon.com/.

    I'm used to an extra evening from Startup Weekend events, but all the teams were able to produce something cool.

    A bit of fun news - we'll be streaming this weekend's World Cup soccer games from the big screen at WeWork, so we'll be able to catch the games while hacking.

    We also have some cool gadgets to hack on like Oculus VR and Epson Movero glasses, as well as SparkCores some basic Arduinos and electronics.

    Quick question: can I still sign up if I need to leave early on Saturday (around 5pm)? I really want to attend, but want to leave a spot open for people who can be there for the entire thing...thanks!

    We have a great lineup for tonight's pre-event (http://www.meetup.com/Hack-Things/events/192609592/). One of the speakers is going to talk about a gesture-sending air guitar he and his team built at a wearables hackathon last year. And we have two additional speakers covering wearables they worked on.

    I'm a senior ux researcher with CS degree (never used it) looking for two devs (c/c++, front-end) to join forces with. Equipment I will bring: full Arduino Uno R3 kit; may bring dev unlocked Galaxy S4. I have an ideas for use cases, formal spec. Together we should do some great things. PM me for more info... Thanks!

    Quick ask. Anyone have a GoPro 3 they could bring/share? I'm looking to hack something together using a few of them, and I'll return it to you at the end, promise :)

    Will wearables be provided at the hackathon?

    June 15

    • Hakon V.

      As of right now, there will be very limited supply of stuff to play with, so it's *highly* recommended that you bring your own supplies so you aren't limited to what's available. If you have an idea you want to work on, make sure to order your parts in advance so you have everything you'll need.

      1 · June 23

    • Rex St. J.

      I will be bringing a few SparkCores and running a short workshop on them to show people how to build stuff with them; Supplies are limited!

    Do many teenagers attend? What ages?

    June 23

    • Hakon V.

      It's hard to say how many teenagers will attend, but teenagers are welcome and it would be great to see some younger hackers come participate. We're trying to create a fun, welcoming environment for all ages.
