R&D Challenge 1.0: Maker Takeover Huntingdon

Huntingdon - Thursday 17 May 2018  

Maker Takeover was a day-into-evening event at the fabulous iMET centre at Alconbury Weald in Huntingdon.

Maker Takeover was perfect for SMEs, creative businesses, innovators, tech people, artists and those interested in finding out about leading-edge technologies. As well as talks and workshops, the maker fair allowed you to explore exciting and new virtual reality, augmented reality, smart cities data and artist innovation projects. As dusk fell, we entertained with a series of creative digital performances never been seen in Huntingdon before.

Collusion events are informal, creative and aimed at showing off the region’s rich talent across art and technology. The event was attended by a dynamic group of people from across arts, tech, and innovation.

“Amazing - Phenomenal - Innovative”
