We’ve overcome the sleep wall…well, some of us

Hello fellow hackers!

If you’re still tuning in, then you’ll know we are about two hours shy of sunrise. Can you believe it? Productivity at the Hackathon is at an all time high! While the number of awake individuals has dwindled, the teams are still putting their best foot forward and are determined to finish the #Strandbeest Hackathon. We sincerely applaud their efforts, because the need to sleep is really setting in.

Take a look at their progress below!

ALERT: Strandbeest Takeover

Inspired by Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen, the Peabody Essex Museum is continuing a series of mini-residencies for its Maker Lounge. Creative, tech-minded, curious and people-loving folk are invited to take over the Lounge to develop their own project or projects exploring the poetic or pragmatic possibilities of mechanical motion, as exampled in Theo Jansen’s otherworldly kinetic sculptures that use simple machines — wheels, levers, pistons — to create wind-powered motion, blurring the boundaries between animate and inanimate beings. More information about the residency can be found at http://www.pem.org/learn/maker_lounge
