Hackathon: Light Hacking
Friday 16 and Saturday 17 December at MADlab Eindhoven
We need to hack the Internet of Things!
Fascinating and interesting advances in lighting technology are presented in this Hackathon, with workshops you are able to work in a team to create prototypes and test setups. What you can offer and what you need are matched so you can connect your knowledge with others.
Besides inspiring information experts you can find creative and technical people who want to work with you, do workshop projects or work on ideas. Programmers test their skills and collaborate with designers, artists and engineers. Professionals, students and companies form teams and challenge each other.
Light is increasingly controlled with electronic devices. This is the experience and functionality of the space in which we live, work and recreate with adjustable applications, remote sensing, etc.
• How does light work? What can you develop?
LED, OLED, Laser applications as well as holography, ionization, video, medical applications are discussed.
• What can you do with Open Data and sensor networks?
Apps for NL, Pachube, Internet of Things are responding to the current signal technology and grid computing. With Arduino, Processing and Apps, you can do magic with photons…

Sample projects to be worked on or that can inspire you:
Links to tools etc
Processing – Processing is a programming language, development environment, and online community that since 2001 has promoted software literacy within the visual arts. Initially created to serve as a software sketchbook and to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context, Processing quickly developed into a tool for creating finished professional work as well.
Arduino – Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
Pachube – Pachube connects people to devices, applications, and the Internet of Things. As a web-based service built to manage the world’s real-time data, Pachube gives people the power to share, collaborate, and make use of information generated from the world around them.
