Think Outside The Cubicle Hackathon (Nov 20 – 22)

In a day or in a lifetime, we spend much of our time working. Whether you work as a freelancer, as part of a small startup, or as part of a large company, we want to give you the opportunity to imagine what your dream workplace could be. How can technology change our work environments? How can a smarter office improve our work lives?

IKEA hosts a 48-hour hackathon called Think Outside The Cubicle at the IKEA Concept Centre in Delft to come up with the office from the future. They clearly state there are no technological constraints – think mobile applications, connected objects and interior design. “Anything is possible. The only limit is your imagination.”

It is not known if the hackathon includes sleepovers at IKEA 😉

The hackathon is for everyone with an idea, developers, makers, designers, and even IKEA insiders. Or just anyone with a “secret weapon”.

1st prize is an all-expenses-paid one-week trip + a pass for an event in Austin. 2nd is the same, but for Londen. Third place will win six Parrot Bebop Drones.
