Digital Atlanta's Physical to Digital Hackathon

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The age of smart objects, sometimes called the "Internet of Things" or "Ubiquitous Computing," is coming and it has big implications for companies and for marketers. Sensors and new technologies will bring the internet into the environment in elegant and useful ways. Join a team of expert hardware hackers/technologists/designers as we hack up prototypes that will digitally augment the conference area. Facilitators will help you to create working prototypes based on sensors, LEDs, motors and small screens. This hands-on workshop, full of creativity, concepting, story-telling, coding and building will run from 10-4, with a break for lunch.

Join a team to:
  • Create wearable computing prototypes - What is after Google Glass?
  • Create smart things - What will smart chairs, smart tables, smart doors, or even smart drink coasters do for you and your brands?
  • Design and create co-working desk robot that makes it easy to see who's hard and work and who's up for a chat
  • Measure and display the busyness of the conference via door-based sensors as well as wifi-measurements
  • Some other top-secret ideas, too!

You don't need experience (though that's good too — we'll be using Processing, Wiring, and Arduino). All you need is the desire to make something cool. Remember, "the best way to predict the future is to invent it."
