Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, 1012 CR Amsterdam

Join us on May 19th for the pre-event of Hack the Brain 2016 - Hack yourself better (or worse). The third edition of Hack the Brain is taking place from June 24th till 26th. During this three-day creative hackathon, we bring together people from all walks of life, from artists to neuroscientists and developers.

Starting from curiosity and unanswered questions, they will hack into the brain with ideas on health, care and quality of life. Participants can work with different EEG-type techniques to measure, visualize and interpret brain activity, building artistic installations or applications for healthcare or wellbeing. To get a grasp of the atmosphere and get to know the projects people developed during earlier editions.

Join the pre-event and get informed
