We are proud to welcome Technology Will Save Us to host a lab at Trailerpark I/O and give a fresh perspective on the way technology works. During the lab we will work in community with their DIY Thirsty Plant Kit and build a solar-powered moisture sensor to keep our plants happy.
Technology is great when it helps spark our creativity and cross boundaries of geography, gender, class and sexuality. However, most of us are unaware of how our favorite objects actually work and how we can fix and hack them.
London-based startup Technology Will Save Us understands this and have set out on a mission to inspire kids and empower parents to become creators of technology. Their innovative and fun make-it-yourself kits and digital tools help kids (and the adults that love them) to make, play, code and invent using technology. Their kits include, amongst others, Electro-Dough, DIY Speakers, a Thirsty Plant Kit and the award winning DIY Gamer Kit that teaches you how to create the video games you love.
We are proud to welcome Technology Will Save Us to host a lab at Trailerpark I/O and give a fresh perspective on the way technology works. During the lab we will work in community, putting things together, taking them apart and learning how they work.
The lab has room for 25 participants. Everyone is welcome to apply for a seat.
Note that you can only apply for one lab, as all labs at I/O take place between 10am and 12.30pm
Trailerpark I/O – unfolding the world of art, design and technology
Trailerpark I/O, a one-day event in Copenhagen on July 29, amplifies curiosity, celebrates ideas and showcases what happens when creativity, radical ideas and technology meet. The event exhibits futuristic and visionary ideas, talks by thought-leaders and troublemakers from around the globe, and labs, where people can co-develop ideas with leading experts.
The labs at I/O are all about getting involved, playing around and creating value together. The idea is to gather people and startups around a specific challenge or theme and together with experts and great facilitators try to develop new solutions together. We believe in an arena where the exploratory approach trumps the fear of failing and where collaboration is more important than showing off.
