IoTHackDay Returns To Connect All The Things

Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 1.06.58 PMIoTHackDay returns to Minnesota next month for those who like to roll up their sleeves and make connections between all the things.

Held on October 17th at Minnetronix St. Paul HQ from 8am – 8am, the free all day affair is Minnesota’s largest gathering of the sort.

“We have a vibrant and creative IoT community in Minnesota. IoTHackDay is a great opportunity to spend the day working together on building connected devices to solve every day problems,” says conference organizer Justin Grammens — a Code42 Engineer by day Arduino.MN lead by night.

Using the DevPost service, IoT Hackday is currently accepting team applications for ideas going into the experience.  Grammens predicts that ~75  people will join on some ~15 teams, up from last years attendance given the rise in popularity within the space.

The inagural IoT Hackday featured an array of DIY projects ranging from a remote dog food feeder and an automatic blind adjuster to a ‘habit aware’ wrist device.

And like the first one, this version also has a creative outlet for the young up-and-coming IoT maker: a parellel LED Halloweek costume hack.
