There are different kind of hackathons, where people come together to solve serious issues such as providing people with access to clean water, clean the ocean from garbage or to help a paralyzed person to walk again. And there is the “STUPID SHIT NO ONE NEEDS & TERRIBLE IDEAS HACKATHON” happned on February 25th, 2017 in New York. You wish you could join? Sorry, there is a waiting list you have to sign up for and with a little bit of luck you might get a spot next year to make your terrible idea come true! I have collected a few of the stupid shit no one needs and terrible ideas from past hackathons:
