Saturday Hack.

Yesterday 16 creatives from across the UK came together at The Public for a day of hacking.

Massive marble runs, seasonal mood trees, infra red badges, cloud orchestras, audio installations, barcode battles and projected pianos to name a few ideas.

Big thank you to Scott Fletcher, Tom Burton, Rachel Sutton, Geoff Henderson, Deta Ward, Manpreet Sethi, Ashley Brown, Antonio Roberts, David Checkley, Sam Underwood, Nikki Pugh, Garry Bulmer, Andy Hubble, Alyson Fielding, Kim Wall and Dane Watkins.
