The ”Sports Hackathon,” an event for participants to invent ”new sports of the future,” returns as a program for children.
Through repeated discussions and presentations, participants create new types of sports by combining all kinds of tools – ranging from familiar play equipment to curious instruments incorporating media technology – and sports. Featured here among others will by such novel tools as the “throwing goals” and “counting balls” that are currently in production at YCAM. For the creation of new sports, being generally good at sports is not a required precondition. Participants are encouraged to do away with preconceived ideas about sports, and let their creativity run wild. The sports that are created here today will perhaps entertain people around the world in the future!
(This event will be in Japanese only.)
