Berlin / June 29, 2018 - July 01, 2018
Dear citizen scientists, dear makers and doers!
What does the word »hearable« make you think of? How do you imagine the future of hearing and how does it feel? What is important for you in everyday life?
To get to the bottom of these questions, the »Hear How You Like To Hear« project at Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg invites everyone with an interest to come to Fab Lab Berlin and take part in the Hearable Hackathon. The event starts on Friday, 29.06.2018. A jury will commend the three best ideas. We will publish the winners as well as the ideas not awarded prizes on the Fraunhofer IDMT website, the citizen science platform »Bürger schaffen Wissen« and Careable.org. Join in and create new ideas for the hearables and co. of tomorrow!
Whatever your speciality - IT, design or sound - or simply if you find the topic fascinating: It is up to you in this hackathon whether you focus on individualised solutions for everyday use, create new designs or let your imagine run wild and dream up futuristic ideas. Laser cutters, 3D printers, modelling material and tools are at your disposal on site.
