About Plethora-24hr Hardware Hackathon
Plethora under the aegis of Brainwave and Troika 2016, the annual technical festival aims to provide a 24 hour long intensive prototyping and development environment. It is an annual hardware hackathon that allows hackers of all skill levels to explore their creative and engineering talents. Hackers will be provided the space and equipment they need along with the mentorship to make the most out of these resources. Participants, in teams of 2 to 4 shall be encouraged to let their imaginations run wild, using a micro-controller kit or repurposing existing hardware for unique applications. Teams shall also have access to a standard circuit laboratory bench, complete with test equipment such as power supplies and oscilloscopes. At the conclusion of the 24hr hackathon, teams shall demo their projects to other attendees and judges. Finally, the panel of judges shall evaluate and score the presented projects.
Teams with members from different colleges/disciplines are also allowed to participate.
