N36 Hosts Wearable Computing Hackathon Featuring Thalmic’s MYO Armbands

The Next 36 will be holding its first ever Hackathon on September 13 and 14 in Waterloo and Toronto hosted by Google. 

The theme will be wearable computing and the N36 are delivering the event in partnership with Thalmic Labs, with support from N36 Alumni Stephen Lake and Scott Greenberg.

Prizes for the winning teams will include cash, MYO armbands, plus a select number of advance spots at N36 National Selection Weekend in November.

Hackathon competitors will be building software for hardware devices, so some technical/programming knowledge is required. The Hackathon is open to any Canadian undergraduate student – register online to participate.

The Hackathon is part of the N36’s larger cross-Canada Campus Tour and supports the N36’s goal to increase the number of entrepreneurial-minded applications they receive from technical co-founders for their 2014 cohort. Applications for the 2014 intake of The Next 36 close on October 7th.
