Stupid Shit No One Needs & Terrible Ideas Hackathon Toronto
The Stupid Shit No One Needs & Terrible Ideas Hackathon Toronto: a hackathon dedicated to creating things that have absolutely no value. The weird Canadian cousin of stupidhackathon.com.
You can make whatever you want as long as it works and contributes nothing whatsoever to the world.

MAYBE PUT SOME SENSORS ON IT I GUESS CAN I HAVE MONEY NOW
A FUCKING FITNESS TRACKER
THE INTERNET OF BEES
Come with a team or meet new people to create a stupid, terrible idea that nobody needs! At the end of the day present your stupid terrible nonsense off at our Stupid Job Fair.
You can buy a ticket to participate in the hackathon (you SHOULD) or if you'd just like to be very very very impressed, grab one for the Stupid Job Fair/presentations. Bring your friends!
A hardware library with cameras, Arduinos, Cutting Edge "Electronic" Sensors, and more will be available for creating your stupid pointless garbage idea.
No tech expertise required! Bring us fresh eyes unsullied by the Status Quo. Bring us your fearless, innovative hearts and paradigm-bludgeoning minds. We need progammers, designers, comedians, videographers, artists, thought leaders, ideationists, neolibertarian techno-utopian oversimplifiers, the REAL HEROES, and YOU!
