If you hear the word “hack” do you think about a break-in to a computer system, or do you think of a clever solution to an interesting problem?
Maker are often hackers, the kind who come up with crazy (or completely sane) solutions. The web site Hackaday is a daily dose of “fresh hack” from makers/hackers around the world. Hackaday strives to promote the free and open exchange of ideas and information, which is similar to the mission of Maker Faire Milwaukee.
The first Hackaday World Create Day is happening Saturday, April 23rd, 2016, and they’re looking for people to get involved! The goal is to create technology solutions for social change, which is something we’re really excited about. Hopefully some of the ideas will be submitted to the Hackaday Prize, which is about using your maker skills to create a better world.
Check out the Design your concept phase for more info, and join the rest of the hackers/makers in trying to improve the world!
(And if you do come up with something amazing that has world-changing potential, we’d love to have you share it at Maker Faire this year!)
