Tiree Tech Wave (TTW10)

22-26 October 2015, Isle of Tiree, Scotland, UK

A hands-on making and meeting event exploring the edges of technology on
the wild edge of Scotland

Register by 21st September for early bird rate.

Another chance to meet, make, and talk under endless sky.  We will have
RPis and Arduinos, textiles and Lego technic, and of course endless
supplies of tea, but the one crucial ingredient is you.

The western fringe is where scholarship was kept alive in the Dark Ages,
and where wind surfers gather today.  At Tiree Tech Wave we try to capture
a little of the depth of the former and the excitement of the latter as we
explore the social, artful, playful and practical edges of technology.

There are no fixed outcomes, you come, you meet, you do stuff together.
However, because there are no fixed outcomes, many exciting things happen,
including this year a best paper award at CHI 2015 in South Korea for a
project started at a past TTW.

For some past highlights see:

There are a few special things likely to be happening this time including a
workshop on interactive textiles for dementia care and discussions about
OER (open educational resources).  There is also various geocoded island
data for those who like data wrangling, an overhead projector with Kinect
for interactive installations or public displays, and a 3D scanner.
However, the final agenda is your own.
