Science Hack Day Dublin, is making a triumphant return after it debut in 2012. On the 2nd & 3rd of March ,”The Hub” DCU will be home to a 36 hour long making hack-a-ton! Not to be missed.
The idea of the event is to bring together designers, developers, scientists, artists in the same physical space for a brief but intense period of collaboration, hacking and building cool stuff. It just happens to be run by the some of the same happy people who are organising this years Dublin Mini Maker Faire, so it is guaranteed to rock your socks off.
It’s great opportunity to kick start a project you’ve put into the Dublin Mini Maker Faire open call (which closes 1st of March).
Talk about being on the map. Dublin Mini Maker Faire 2012 was visible FROM SPACE.
No joke – the epic day of making that was Dublin Mini Maker Faire was big, but even we didn’t know it would get picked up on Apple’s maps app.
Now we could take credit and say we launched a rocket with a camera attached and submitted the photos to Apple, or that we calculated on which day the satellites were flying overhead and scheduled the faire for that day. Maybe it wasn’t even a satellite but rather a high-altitude plane doing photography to fill in the high-density parts of the map. But either way, those white tents, those rightly colored seats– it’s unmistakable.
Can we promise that Dublin Mini Maker Faire on July 27th, 2013 will be immortalised on Apple’s maps again? Was it a coincidence? You’ll just have to join us to find out. The call for makers is still open until March 1st.
