WHAT: Embedded Hardware Workshop Munich & The Hackaday Prize Party
WHERE: Technikum at TonHalle, Munich, Germany
WHEN: Thursday, November 13, 2014 from 13:30 to 23:30 (CET)
ABOUT: The Embedded Hardware Workshop is an afternoon of hands-on activities meant to explore new embedded architectures or prove mastery for those already familiar with the devices.
Anyone who has experience with computer coding — from beginner to veteran — will find a challenge suited to their skill set.
THE HACKADAY PRIZE PARTY: Hackaday Munich marks the conclusion of the 2014 Hackaday Prize. The 6-month-long contest challenged hardware developers to use Open Design to build the future of connected devices.
The Hackaday Prize party will celebrate the five finalists shown below. We will reveal the order in which these entries placed, and award the Grand Prize winner a trip into Space!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
