A coffee mug that wakes you up? A door that detects unwanted intruders? A text activated pet? Join Shapeways+ littleBits for a one day make-a-thon at the littleBits HQs and turn everyday home objects into smarter devices!
Up for it? Excellent, here is what to do next:
Assemble your team!
You can also come solo and we will do the match-making the day of the make-a-thon.
Bring with you an object.
It can be something from your home, a random thing from the toy store - a piece of clothing, up to you. The more boring it is the better ;) we ll hack it together the day of the event.
The challenge for the day of the makethon will be to turn a mundane object to something unique and beautiful.
If you have ideas already and want to start working on cad files, go for it :)
We anticipate the event selling out really fast. So RSVP now, but only if you are sure you want to come; space is limited so don’t take a spot from someone else if you are not 100% you can attend.
