Calling all makers, entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, creators, innovators and developers!

Join us Friday March 6th, 7th, 8th for a whirlwind weekend of creating, building and pitching.
This 54-hour event is designed to give you the experience of creating a connected hardware product, building the foundation for your hardware company, in just a weekend.

Heard of Nymi? MYO? Muse? Nest? Dropcam? These connected devices are changing the way we interact with the world around us. We're looking for people that are serious about building real products for real people to come join us for a weekend to create the next big idea in hardware. Come with an idea, or ready to jump on to your favourite idea presented at the start of the weekend.
