Hackaday SuperCon & Eye controlled wheelchair @Hackaday

Hackaday SuperCon Marks the Dawn of Something New @ Hackaday.

We announced the Prize winner, the Eyedrivomatic, Saturday night at the Hackaday SuperConference. Eyedrivomatic was by far my favorite – the problem it solved, the positive attitude of Patrick Joyce and the simplicity of the design was really inspiring. At least 20 different countries were represented in attendees, at least 1/3 of the people flew in.

SuperCon was a pretty awesome event with many talks and about a variety of subjects. And the badge modding was insane. The badges were boards with traces, like an empty canvas. The front was purely aesthetic, the back was a protoboard. People were encouraged to add anything they wanted. One guy built a spectrum analyzer on his badge after taking Paul Stoffregen’s Audio Microcontroller workshop. SpriteTM made a high voltage spark-gap badge hack.

Shanni Prutchi opened the SuperCon with her talk about building a photon source to experiment with Quantum technologies. Kay Igwe closed with a talk about her brain computer interface project. Sarah Pretkus, a speaker and the creator of Robot Army called SuperCon a “Shot of creative adrenaline”. – Sophi Kravitz
