TOM:Melbourne Makeathon for Assistive Technology
TOM:Tikkun Olam Makers is a global movement bringing together people with disabilities and Makers to develop open source assistive technology to address everyday challenges.
We are proud to host TOM:Melbourne 2016. During the 72 hour makeathon we will develop hardware and software product prototypes designed to meet needs that people with disabilities identify are important to them. By bringing together people who understand the needs (‘need-knowers’) alongside engineers, designers, developers and makers, and providing a space for innovation and prototyping, we will create solutions, make new connections and share unique experiences.
Join a group of talented individuals for three amazing days to experience how tinkering and technology can impact lives.
