Ideas “Make something that matters”
- We will be asking the community broadly to submit ideas for the Adelaide IoT Hackathon “Make something that matters” and we will post them for you to refer too.
- Citizen Science - Build a graphene supercapacitor, study the effects of a behavior, build an open source instrumentation device.
- Automation - Build a device that makes breakfast or buys laundry detergent when you’re running low. Automatically track stuff, automate any process, build a Me-robot to do your every whim
- Assistive technologies - Build a project that helps others move better, see better, or live better. Whether that means exoskeletons, a better wheelchair, a braille display, or educational software, we want to see it.
- Or any other idea you have to hack for social change! Leverage your talent and find solutions to address technology issues facing humanity today.
- 9am - The Adelaide IoT Hackathon “Make something that matters” begins and will be streamed live.
- 1pm - Introductions, meet n greet. - 111 Woodville Road Woodville, SA 5011
