13:00 – 16:00, Saturday, Oct 17
Hackprende is possible thanks to OMNIS, KAI Coop and innovation unit of the biggest cooperative corporation in the world, MCC.
The team for this Asian adventure is led by Alesander Robleno (@AlxShow) a tech entrepreneur from Europe, former CEO of Tidelabs. And it is completed by Oier and Walter, Oier Gonzalez(@OierGC) is an active guy who gets inspired using and helping other to use different technological products. He is always trying to create networking and collaboration ecosystems. In the other hand Adrian Walter Stock(@Walter_Stock)is experienced in implementing new ways of learning in the Spanish educational system and interested in tech.
“Our world is digital, learning about technology is learning about how the world is and how it will be in the future”.
Hackprende Asia has come to life in the body of a workshop in which we introduce people to logical programming without coding;everyone will create his or her own video game functional video game prototype without coding. Once we have a functional video game we will build a controller from the scratch, whatever objects is in the room could be used to control it. Then we will have time for experimentation, be it to create a new game concept based on the possibility of hacking every object into a controller to hack an object with other purposes.
Bring your own laptop (preferably with Windows) with working USB ports and pre-install software – Stencyl (Can be provided in the workshop)
2. Game development without coding (using Stencyl)
3. Build controller from scratch (using Makey Makey)
4. Experimentation time & challenge time (Run any game or app using the controller, hack other objects, test the hardware and create other controllers)
5. “Creation” sharing & conclusions
This workshop can help you:
●Introducing you to the logical programming.
●If you want to create a vide ogame but don’t want to learn coding.
●If you are interested on prototyping really fast with hard and soft integration.
●If you are willing to give to an object anew functionality.
●If you are willing to transform the whole world into your invention kit.
●To give you new interactions ways (soft& hard) for the technologies you master.
●Allowing you to build a tangible prototype of an idea you have with no need of tech knowledge nor complex tools orprocesses.
What to expect:
The workshop has a software part and a hardware one, first we will do a really fast rush into the logical programming,within an hour we will know the basics and we will create a functional video game prototype.Then we will build a controller with whatever material(Lego,PlayDoh, Paper,∙3d Print, …)we want. Once we know a bit about software and we got those object hacking superpowers everything will be possible. Trying classic games with new controlling approaches, competing, and challenging ourselves are the bottom line of the expectations. Attendees can buy the materials used within the workshops.
Who should enroll:
The workshop is ideal for no-experienced users, is a good approach for beginners or people with zero coding nor programming knowledge. Anyone willing to create a product or service with software and hardware integration should be interested on this. Experienced users will find a really comfortable approach to game development and will get a huge input in the hardware part of the workshop because of the compatibility with other technologies they could master; Makey Makey works with every app or program, also it is compatible with Arduino and Scratch games and apps can be controlled with it.
But mostly, who does not want to transform some bananas into a piano?
RMB 200; RMB 150 for XinCheJian Members.
Makey Makey: 284 RMB, the ones who want to buy the complete Makey Makeykit after the workshop will need to pay 284 RMB more.
If interested, please sign up in advance, so we can calculate attendees to prepare materials! Or send Email to firstname.lastname@example.org
