Meet the winning team of Adafruit-sponsored prize for Silicon Chef 2014 – Alpacathon: Most Creative Use of Hardware:

Our annual Silicon Chef hardware hackathon (September 27-28, 2014 in San Francisco) was a hit thanks to our brilliant participants! Over 200 people joined the two-day event at Stripe HQ. We had hackers of various ages come from all around the state, including Los Angeles, Salinas and Oakland, in order to hack! With the help of our awesome mentors — experienced hardware and software hackers — the hackathon attendees worked on 27 projects and demoed them on Sunday afternoon. The weekend included inspiring Tech Talks from experienced female engineers in the industry as well.
