24 Hour Hardware Hacking Returns to 27c3

Hackers of all ages can (learn how to) make things at the Hardware Hacking Area of the 27c3!

The HHA is open to everyone and open the entire congress! Hackers of all ages and skill levels are welcome! Round-the-clock hands on workshops will be led by lots of experienced teachers like Mitch Altman, Jimmie P. Rodgers, fbz, Wim Vandeputte and…you!

Learn to solder, then help teach others! Make cool things with electronics, design and print 3D models on the Makerbot, break RFID, or give your own workshop on the projects you’ve been hacking on this year. Last year there was a Cantenna workshop, a Mikrocopter workshop, and a GSM workshop among many others.

Lots of kits for you to make will be available including Brain Machines, TV-B-Gones, Trippy RGB Waves, Mignonette Games, LEDcubes, LOL shields, Atari Punk Consoles…and there’s always room for yours!

To accommodate all this hardware hacking goodness, the HHA will be twice the size it was during the 26c3, but still conveniently located near the Hackcenter.

Even if you don’t have a ticket to Congress, you can stop by the HHA with a Night Pass good from Midnight to 6 AM. Night passes are only €5 and will be sold shortly before midnight each day of the 27c3.

    HHA sounds great =)

  2. For anyone who wants to know how to use an Arduino, I’ll be leading
    Arduinos For Total Newbies Workshop
    on both Day 2 and Day 3 (same workshop each day) at 14:00h to 17:00h.

    This is for anyone with any curiosity about Arduinos. I will bring you from knowing nothing, to having your very own Arduino clone (that you will solder yourself), and using your own computer to program your Arduino as a TV-B-Gone remote control, to turn off TVs in public places!

    What: Arduino workshop for newbies, using TV-B-Gone remote controls as an intro
    When: This workshop will be given twice: 14:00h to 17:00h on Day 2 (Tuesday the 28th) and on Day 3 (Wednesday the 29th).
    Where: Hardware Hacking Area, in the basement
    Who: Anyone and everyone can have fun learning Arduino. Ages 8 to 100
    Cost: Instruction is free,
    parts costs (if you want to make along with us and bring your Arduino TV-B-Gone home with you): €35

    Wieso ist denn das Bild mit Frau und Kind ausgetauscht worden?

      Auf Grund von parlamentarischen Zwängen hätten wir gerne das Orginalbild behalten, konnten aber nicht ;-)

      (Sorry, keine Ahnung… Wird aber sicherlich ein guter Grund dahinter stehen…)
