Innovators are invited to create something – hardware or software – that subverts the original purpose of a device by making it do something it’s not supposed to do.

Applicants will pitch either a blog or video to the Lab team at Campus Party, where 10 runners up will win free tickets to next years Campus Party.

Deadline for applications is the 6th September.
