WHAT IS IoTHACKDAY?
#IoTHackDay is a fun, FREE day that brings together teams, novel ideas, and an entrepreneurial spirit to dream up and build cool new devices to solve every day problems. Teams submit their ideas and build their teams ahead of the event!
After hacking for 12 hours, at 8:00 pm on Oct 17th we will have an audience vote were the top teams receive hardware and prizes!
Do you have kids who might like to participate in hacking their own halloween costume? For a small fee of $20, join the LED Costumes event going on during #IoTHackDay!
Kids (and adults)... come that day to the same location and learn how to create your own glowing costumes! We will have sample materials to create LED glowing costumes that you can program with a low cost Arduino computer.
It's going to be an absolute blast! Registration and additional information for the LED Costumes project can be found at: http://bit.ly/ledcostumes2015

You are open and encouraged to build modules and what you need ahead of time and be able to prepare yourself for success. The competition is all about not only the product you have envisioned and created, but additionally how much you have been able to build that day. The more you can build to what you orginally spec'ed and share with the group the better chance you have to win.
