AEC Hackathon 1.2

It's a wrap, the AEC Hackathon 1.2 just concluded! Held in Seattle, Washington at University of Washington's Pacific Northwest Center for Construction Research and Education, it was a fun weekend of hacking to improve the built environment with plenty of high-tech and innovative solutions in the house.

As always, I was amazed at what the AEC Hackers made over the course of the weekend. In addition to the projects created, some of my more memorable highlights from the event include:

1. Drones for architecture and climbing a tree to get the drone for team Revit My Drone.

2. An awesome smart table touch screen device thanks to SmartUse.

3. Plenty of Virtual Reality for AEC represented including a full immersive VR setup thanks to the team at VRcade.

4. Multiple Web3D applications that used WebGL and more.
5. FTW (For The Win): seeing alumni that have started companies from projects started at past AEC Hackathons.
