The 21 Grown-Up Projects of Garage48 Hardware & Arts 2017 Hackathon

The 2nd Day at the Garage48 Hardware & Arts 2017 has been filled with hard work. 21 teams are working on their physical prototypes around the clock using various materials and technologies, such as 3D printing, laser cutting, different tools and design materials. Today after the mentor rounds, the technical and design mentors gathered for a moderated panel discussion to speak on how technology and design comes together. Sven Kirsimäe, the head of Mobile Engineering at Pipedrive, agreed on the ever-lasting relationship that developers have with designers: "designers force us, developers, to think outside-of-the-box." How beautiful. 
In order to deliver all the prototypes on the stage tomorrow evening, the mentors did rounds in 3 groups and gave advice in technical, business and design questions. Whether it was a need to calculate if the mechanical construction of a device would hold the weight, help in critically assessing if the Java or Python skills are better presented in the team and should be put to use, or to help find actual practical uses to a prototype that at the beginning was just a fun idea, our amazing mentors put their minds and hands to it.
Our on-site electronics & mechatronics storage, Mass Portal 3D printing room, design storage and Eccom lazer cutting labs are all in busy use and also mentoring sources for our teams.

Tonight at 20 we will enjoy a special networking event, where all of the teams and mentors can mingle and meet with members from other teams. The Latvian Embassy helped us to set up the event and brought some Latvian goodies to our fun gathering as well. :)

Now meet all of the 21 teams in their full glory:

This device can be easily attached to the gas cylinder valve. It consists of 2 parts - the compass that is attached to the top of the handwheel and a magnet, attached to the valve body. Micro controller is receiving the feedback from the compass about the valve position. When it is closed it sends sound confirmation signal and shows the green indication light, if it is not - it displays a red warning light and gives a sound signal!
