FirstBuild Mega Hackathon

FirstBuild Mega Hackathon

Teams gather for project assignments and table placement during the start of the Hackathon on Friday, April 10. Over 300 makers, engineers, designers and techies participated in a free 24-hour Hackathon at GE Appliances’ FirstBuild microfactory in Louisville, Ky., on April 10 through April 11. A total of $60,000 in cash prizes and hardware were available to winners. FirstBuild is a physical and online microfactory that uses small batch production to manufacture new appliances at a much faster speed and with less risk. FirstBuild leverages the maker movement, a largely growing co-creation ideology that allows ideas for new appliances to come from anyone, anywhere, anytime.
