Event description

Description

We are looking for concepts that address emergency response in challenging environments such as disaster sites and conflict zones. Concepts should incorporate functional fabrics as part of a system; fabrics that have the ability to sense their surroundings; communicate; control temperature and monitor physiological performance. What kind of break-through prototypes could you help build to solve real-life ‘emergency response’ problems in disaster areas and conflict zones?

Developers. Engineers. Designers. Join us on Friday, July 28- Sunday, July 30 in Cambridge for a hackathon unlike others. Each day you’ll work with 100-150 other innovators from the DoD, MIT Innovation Initiative, AFFOA (Advanced Functional Fabrics of America) and the MIT community to build product prototypes.

Beside access to advanced fabric technologies as a hackathon participant you’ll get the opportunity to be mentored by a diverse group of experts: mentors who are experts in the hackathon “challenge” areas, technology mentors and pitch mentors.

Winning team(s) to receive up to $15K to further develop their ideas.

Registration is now open! Get your ticket today. If you are bringing a team with you to the hackathon, each team member will need to register separately for a ticket. (And if you are not part of a team yet, no worries, the hackathon facilitator will be helping teams to form at the start of the event.)
