Hack the Past
For this edition of HackHarvard, we're intent on applying a timeline to the hackathon experience.
We want to bring back the old technology that started it all, the classic technology that people still look upon at that inspire them to improve or create amazing products. It's a simple idea, but we want our hackers to take it in all sorts of fantastic ways; whether it's reworking a well-known gadget or creating the next iteration of a common solution, the things that will come out of this hackathon are bound to embody elements of the old and the new.
