This will be a truly amazing hackathon, where we expect people to work on crazy ideas with the aim to have fun while developing something cool and REAL – something you can hold in your hands. No matter what skills you possess – everybody who wants to build something is welcome! We want to engage people from different levels of experience: from students to experienced electronics engineers and start-up entrepreneurs.

Did you know that the first Hardware & Arts event in February 2014 attracted the biggest ever crowd in Garage48 history? Over 130 participants built 20 amazing prototypes over the weekend, from hydroponic greenhouse to a discolights dress with 30,000 beads, from personalised insole modeller to interactive cat toy (full story on the last event can be read on Garage48 blog).
