> Hello!
> Greetings from New Delhi!
> We at CEDT, recently organized India's first ever, real 'Hardware Hackathon' (http://www.hack4india.in). The aim of the hackathon was to germinate the idea of pursuing electronics and embedded hardware centric projects and products at the student and entrepreneur level.
> This event which was in planning for quite some time and suffered from many false starts, eventually happened from 30th January to 1st February 2015. This hackathon, planned to be held on our campus, had to be shifted out of NSIT due to the perceived lock down of NSIT campus over the weekend. We still managed to hold the inauguration event at NSIT, in the mini-auditorium from 6 pm onwards and after dinner, transported all the participants and our volunteers (70 odd people) to the 91 Springboard (a start up accelerator hub) campus in Gurgaon.
> In spite of the initial difficulties the event happened with great gusto and evinced unbelievable interest and enthusiasm from participants, mentors, judges and visitors! In all 40 participants in 16 teams participated. Needless to say, the stellar support of our students and sponsor companies (TATA Power, Agnitio, Texas Instruments India, Springer, 91Springboard, Nasscom's 10000 startups, IESA etc) played a major role.
> Our volunteers worked tirelessly and without sleep for 50 hours have crashed for a much deserved rest and will delay sharing of pictures and final report and a press release but here is a link to an online blog that captured the essence of the event: http://pixr8.com/hack4india-hardware-hackathon-budding-entrepreneurs-delhi/
> All the judges and mentors were presented with handmade mementos with on board an MSP430 microcontroller and a sample picture is enclosed. A detailed 'How To' on how to duplicate/customize this memento is being written. The battery powered circuit goes to sleep after a minute and pressing the lone switch wakes it up.
> Also, a video in action: Watch "Electronic Memento" on YouTube - Electronic Memento: http://youtu.be/VFfMgIJoV6I
> Thank you.
