Garage48 Hardware & Arts is a one of a kind hackathon bringing together the creative communities of electronics, mechatronics, software engineers, artists, product designers and marketeers at University of Tartu, Institute of Physics on February 5-7, 2016. This will be a truly amazing hackathon, where we expect people to work on crazy ideas with the aim to have fun while developing something cool and REAL – something you can hold in your hands. No matter what skills you possess – everybody who wants to build something is welcome! We want to engage people from different levels of experience: from students to experienced electronics engineers and start-up entrepreneurs.

Hardware products require more than just a laptop; this time we are putting together a massive stuff of tech to do hardware prototyping. When you register please describe your idea as specific as possible so we can get most of materials/technologies on the venue.

All available equipment and materials during the hackathon are listed in our blog


We will arrange buses leaving from Friday en route Tallinn-Tartu and back on Sunday evening straight after the event. The rest of the trip should be organised by the student him/herself.
