Our friends at Google.org let us know about a terrific Makeathon coming up in September, so we’re passing along the information here:
“The goal is to bring together people who understand the needs (the need-knowers) with technologists/makers/hackers/designers/developers and develop product prototypes that could help people with disabilities increase their independence. This video shows the types of projects that were produced in previous events organized by our partners.
This is going to be a 3 day event from September 11-13 with an opportunity to use technology (both software and hardware tools) to make profound impact on people’s lives.
The event application page is here: you are welcome to apply as a participant or to submit a challenge.”
