We initially planned it from the 22nd to the 27th of September but as it is quite hard to find human resources we propose to postpone it during the Lote4 hackathon.
For the past couple of months we’ve been working with Francesco Musico at unMonastery to assist in the project development of KIDERWIND, an open-source project which aims to harness the wind at high altitude in order to generate power. As part of a new strand of sustainable energy technologies, it is part of the Airborne Wind Energy (or High Altitude Wind Power) which harnesses the kinetic energy of high winds.
We’re now ready to begin developing the first iteration of the project so we’re launching a Hackathon in Matera to do just that, the objective of this hackathon is to develop a prototype of the KIDERWIND project.
We’re looking for Arduino / Drone software experts who would be interested in visiting Matera and working with us for a week on an open source project aimed at making a significant contribution to the global appropriate technology movement, and ensuring that sustainable energy technologies remain open and accessible to all.
If you or someone you know is interested in joining us to work on KIDERWIND comment below or email: firstname.lastname@example.org - please don’t hesitate to share this call for collaboration within your network.
