Conceived, developed, and presented over the course of two days, CHAIN/LINK was an experimental project that sought to challenge the standard hackathon project. Guided by a constructive ethos that sought to question how we mobilize engineers and technological development, the project, CHAIN/LOCK, was an exercise in challenging the motives of hackathons, recasting the recipients of public empathy and healthcare, and at its conclusion, product design and development. Between our team, we had extensive discussions on the best way to approach the project in order to design with, and for, and to figure out the best way to produce during a hackathon, without being the sole beneficiaries of the hackathon rewards.
Below is the slideshow we presented, documenting our progress over the course of the two days, our motivations, and technologies used.
I worked on the physical prototype, design, and concept, Max worked on Twilio integration, and Weston worked on hardware. The video below was put together as a part of our presentation.
