We’re bringing a bunch of hardware to hack on. You may bring your own but assembly and coding all needs to be done on-site.
The hacking actually starts at 1:30pm on Saturday. Enjoy dinner at 7, food and snacks at midnight, and breakfast at 7am the next morning all included as part of the free ticket.
You NEED to Win this Thing
It’s often said that Hardware is Hard, but it’s also really cool. We think that could give you an edge over the software-only hacks. What a great story it would be for the Hackaday crowd to come in and take the top prize!
TWENTY HOURS OF HARDWARE
Show up at 12:30pm on Saturday, May 2nd. By 9:30am the next morning you must have a working piece of hardware having been totally built on-site. Starting at 11am on Sunday you have 60-seconds to show off your build.
We’re not kidding around when we say the judging criteria for this hackathon is “Awesomeness”. TC is putting up $5,000 to the winning team. Obviously someone who hangs out around Hackaday should be the winner here so go sign up!
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.
