Next weekend, June 13 and 14, the global TADHack takes place all over the world. You can participate on site or remotely, and there are a lot of different prizes to be won - in total the prize pot is worth $35k!

For the best two hacks using our technology, we will award a whole lot of Tessel modules! Tessel is a new breed of development board that runs entirely on Node.js, and they come with different modules you can plug in - for more information, see: getting started & sample projects.

Both prizes will include several tessel modules, including:

tessel
  • multiple core tessel boards
  • multiple servo modules and many servo motors
  • multiple ambient modules
  • multiple accelerometer modules
  • camera module
  • GPS module with antenna
  • microsd module
  • bluetooth module
  • audio module

  • RFID module
  • DIY module kit

Matrix.org will be present at the London site, Idea London in Shoreditch, where we will help both local and remote participants (via #matrix:matrix.org) using the Matrix APIs as part of their hacks.

So if you have some spare time next weekend - why not have a think about what could be a cool hack and join us for the global TADHack event! See you there!
