Over 600 undergraduate student hackers, the majority from New England colleges and universities, participated.
Among the hacking teams he met was a team of University High School of Science and Engineering alumni who attend WPI and UConn. Their project, TurboChair, a motorized recliner that could be used by a student to move about campus, was awarded the prize as the best Hardware Hack in the event!
