VentureBeat puts on Makeathon competition

SAN FRANCISCO

Most of them are about writing code on computers. But this one? It's about hot glue guns, cardboard boxes, and little wires. They're calling it a Makeathon.

"There are so many hackathons out there that you know, I can't even keep them straight anymore," said Dylan Tweney, VentureBeat executive editor. "So we thought we'd do a little twist on this and make it hardware oriented."

It's a part of DevBeat, an inaugural developer conference by tech website VentureBeat. Imaginations there were running wild.
