2013 Music Visualizer Hackathon was awesome

Here are some photos from the 2013 Music Visualizer Hackathon that happened on Sunday. We saw some incredible creativity in all the visualizers people made, and the event was a huge success.

Thanks to Ian for getting hardware, to Amir for organizing shirts, awards, and food, to Frank and Clint for making sure our facilities could receive so many guests, and to Effie for making the space awesome and running the registration table.

Also, I couldn’t have gotten all the LED hardware hooked up in time without Devin, Ben, Yushun, and Mike. Thanks for coming in at 11pm on a Saturday and working until 3am, dudes!

Bonus: Here’s a little video showing some visualizers under development:
