Wearable technology such as Google Glass, smart watches, fitness bands, and even light-up shoes are very exciting pieces of fashion and tech. This 24-hour hackathon is open to any college student and will have a focus on combining fashion and tech and creating cool products and concepts within 24 hours.
Innov8athon is a nickname for our annual competition with a focus on creating new ideas and businesses, but with changing themes each year.
Student teams will have the opportunity to compete for over $3,500 in various cash prize categories! Let's build something, Kent State!
