While many people were enjoying the warm weather this past weekend, a group of hack-loving Chicagoans gathered at the Adler Planitarium to particiapte in Science Hack Day Chicago.
During the 24-hour marathon, developers, designers, scientists, and educators suggested ideas, gathered support and collaborated to create some awesome projects, like an Android-powered mobile labratory.
One attendee called out some of the innovations on Twitter at the hashtag #SHDCHI
Hacks so far include brain wave readers, cloud chambers, location tracking and general relativity.
Hack Days were originally created by Yahoo! in 2005, but soon after became a worldwide trend. When it came to Chicago this year, Motorola was there to support it.
Motorola Mobility Foundation supports the development of Android apps for non-profits and also encourages employees to volunteer their time to develop apps for non-profit organizations.
