That's right, folks!
It's only days until the Midwest Regional Stupid Sh!t No One Needs and Terrible Ideas Hackathon! Â
Where: Â LVL1 Hackerspace (duh)
When: Â Oct. 10-11 (12 pm Saturday to 3pm the following day)
Who: Â EVERYÂ ADULTÂ (with a sense of humor)
What: Â A hackathon that aims to cleverly solve problems that DON'T exist.
Why: Â Because everybody else is taking this stuff WAY too seriously, and it's time we did something about it. Â Something ridiculous. Â And fun.
No cost is involved (except maybe your pride).
And for those "useful" people who are unable to think of problems that no one has (likeÂ your shoes being too comfortable, for instance), we will have a variety that you can choose front on site that are personally verified stupid by our "resident experts."
Special awards will also be given out! Â They continue to be in development, and more submissions are welcome.
Here is the current list:
"The Disappointment Machine" -- for the worst/best failed 3-D print -- award: exclusive failed print "art"
"Accidentally Useful" -- for the creation that turns out to solve an ACTUAL problem -- award: project will be lovingly left as a foundling on the doorstep of FirstBuild, where it can, perhaps, be taken seriously one day
