On Saturday, April 30th and Sunday, May 1st InMojo will be hosting our first Hackup Weekend!
The goal: To hack a standard household appliance and create several new and improved devices in a single weekend.
No prior hardware hacking experience required. We want to show that great things can be built in a short time simply by giving creative people the opportunity to control their own hardware. The 'winning' team's design will be cleaned up and turned into a purchasable kit, so that anyone anywhere can replicate their design.
We've been keeping this one under wraps until we could lock down some of logistics, but we can finally announce that the event will be held at the Graduate School of Media Design on Keio University's Hiyoshi campus (map). All hardware hackers and want-to-be hardware hackers in the Tokyo area are welcome.
We'll be posting a mini-site with all of details and signup information (English and Japanese) in the next few days. Stay tuned for more info!
