PCH International is to host Ireland’s first dedicated hardware hackathon for the Internet of Things, as part of a drive to find the “next big thing in hardware”.
It will bring together entrepreneurs, engineers, developers, product designers and hardware enthusiasts to conceive and prototype connected devices. It will begin with attendees proposing ideas and forming teams.
Participants can pitch their product ideas to the crowd and attract attendees to join their team. After the best ideas are voted on, the participants will work together in teams over 46 hours.
