Hack and Wear Hackathon, Berlin–June 12th-14th #WearableWednesday


Berlin is really grooving with wearables these days, and here’s an opportunity to get involved with Hack and Wear. Check out the call to action:

Whether you are a developer, designer or have a great app idea, join us and develop in team the best innovative app for all wearables with Salesforce1 Platform during 48 hours of hack. This is a great opportunity for you to gain knowledge on these new technologies: experts from Salesforce and Accenture will be there to assist you all along the hackathon.

They are really open to creativity and will supply some devices like Oculus Rift, plus you can bring your own hardware like Raspberry Pi, Arduino and Edison. The goal is to have fun and create a cool app. Here’s some additional details.

They can either come by themselves or with their team partners. Over the week-end they will have the possibility to take part in workshops in order to learn more about developing, designing and to get more knowledge on wearables. Wearable startups will also come on Friday the 12th to introduce their devices to the participants and to the State Secretary who will attend the hackathon on Friday night. On Sunday afternoon the participants will make a 3 min. demo of their wearable demo or application. The winners will be announced on Sunday evening.

So, get your creative juices flowing and sign up. FYI they are giving away some pretty hot prizes including a bunch of smartwatches.

Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!

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.
