About Media Hack Day

The Challenge

Hardware is the new game changer!

The digitalisation and the internet is changing media businesses from the ground.  On the way traditional business models ceased to exist and new ways of media consumption have been invented. Now it is time for the next step and free media from the static screen. With the development in new hardware technologies the usage and control of media consumption will change again.

What hardware will we use to enjoy media in the world of tomorrow?

Together with you we want to explore new ideas and help concepts to come to reality, meaning realistic prototypes manufactured within 24 hours of extended hacking and making.


The Mission

Join our Media Hackday

and explore new features and possibilities that will bring digital to reality. The hackathon will bring together creative makers, programmers, designers, mobility experts, product visionaries, hardware producers and manufacturers. Join us if you are an individual maker, developer, designer or established hackathon team.

The Media Hackday takes place at the Fablab Berlin with all its tools and manufacturing machinery available.

Prizes, an international jury and the praise from the community and media owners are waiting.
