We make technologies wearable. Invisible. Useful. Sexy.

The result is an open hardware platform with a wide range of different wearables, beacons, sensors and tags. Based on this unique platform we realized for example the first very convenient alarm system for notebooks.

You can also use the blukii wearables, beacons, sensors and tags to realize your own solutions. blukii is an business accelerator for new ideas. Do not waste time and money with hardware development. Focus on the software development and on selling your product. We support you with the state-of-the-art hardware.

blukii is a brand of Schneider Schreibgeraete GmbH, Germany.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still left with any burning questions about the show? Hopefully you can find the answer below but if not feel free to drop us an email on info@the-hackfest.com

  • When do we find out the briefs? +

    Sponsors briefs will be made available to all participants approximately one week prior to the start of the hack. We will also introduce registered hackers to each other so groups can start to be formed, if you so wish

  • What should I bring? +

    Laptop or tablet, comfortable clothing and any gadgets or tools that may help your team win!

  • What is a hackathon? +

    A hackathon (also known as a hack day, hackfest or codefest) is an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers and project managers, collaborate intensively on software projects. Occasionally there is a hardware component as well. Hackathons typically last between a day and a week in length. Some hackathons are intended simply for educational or social purposes, although in many cases the goal is to create usable software. Hackathons tend to have a specific focus, which can include the programming language used, the operating system, an application, an API, the subject and the demographic group of the programmers. In other cases, there is no restriction on the type of software being created.

  • What will I be provided with? +

    Power sockets, WIFI, hot & cold refreshments, food, seating, and beanbags for the lean-back hackers! Food and drinks are provided over the two days.
