Hackers Camp Day 7.
In the 5 days preceding PICNIC, an annual crossmedia conference in Amsterdam, Mediamatic organized the Social RFID Hackerscamp. A group of excellent coders, designers and physical computeers used recent technologies and interaction design to realize a bunch of engaging interactive installations, wearables and spaces.

On this second day of PICNIC all the projects were as fine-tuned and bug free as possible. Visitors were invited to experience all projects themselves. Accompanied with music, visitors kept bringing more and more friends along to the Friend-Drink-Station...

At 18.00 hrs team leader Klaas Kuitenbrouwer gave a presentation and afterwards the guests were given a tour around all the brand new installations. Those present could play with the IkTag they got at the entrance in the hub.
