Mark your calendar, take the day off of work (tell your boss it's "professional development") and come test your hacking skills with the Hackaday crew in Munich Germany on Thursday, November 13th.
We've rented Technikum at TonHalle, a huge venue that is perfect for the celebration we're going to throw that night. It marks the end of the 2014 Hackaday Prize where the ranking of the final five projects (currently there are 50 competing to make the finals) will be announced.
What kind of hands-on hacking do you want to do?
Here's the deal: we have the venue for the entire day. So why stop at just a party?
This is our first official event in Europe, we want to build something great! There's plenty of space, and with a little bit of help from the Hackaday community members who live in the area we think we can do just about anything! What would you like to see us do in Munich?
Leave a comment below, but here's a stream of consciousness to get you started: classic alarm-clock retrofits (inspired by Sprite_TM) which makes us think of doing scratch-built DCF77 receiver modules. It would be fun to do some type of huge art build to be displayed at the party... many hands make for easy soldering? Robot maze solver build (we'd also need to build a maze ;-). What if we developed a mesh-network text messaging protocol ahead of time and challenged everyone to build the coolest front-end hardware for it?
As you can see, we need a lot of help focusing our ideas and can't wait to hear what you think we should do!
