Wearables hackathon coming up in NYC!

Join fellow programmers, hardware hackers, and designers for an amazing 48 hours at New York’s largest IoT and Wearable focused hackathon! You’ll learn new tools, meet industry experts, collaborate with other talented students and young professionals, and build new wearable and internet-connected technology.

Designers, engineers, developers, undergraduates, masters, PhDs, professionals, makers … Everyone is welcome!

Event hosted at NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, with support from the Computer Science and Engineering Department!

WearHacks is a non profit organization that challenge people to create the wonderful. Our mission is to lower the entry barrier to hardware development through accessible and affordable education. We bring novice makers to experienced hackers together for an intensive 48-hrs where they will learn new tools, meet industry experts, collaborate with other talented students and young professionals and build new wearable and connected technology.

Our past hackathon events have brought us over 1000 talented creators, building over 150 projects with the help of our sponsors and our many mentors. Our most recent event, WearHacks Montreal 2015, over 380 participants created 26 unique projects with 11 devices accessible for use.

WearHacks events not only nurture the educational aspect of hardware hacking, but also provide a platform for many would-be entrepreneurs who are looking to turn their creations into real business ideas.

WearHacks is proud to be hosting the next WearHacks Hackathon event in New York City, running from October 23rd to October 25th, 2015. For more information and tickets, please visit our Facebook page and our website.
