For a lot of kids, STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and math) can seem distant and inaccessible. This weekend, Nickelodeon and the city of Burbank kicked off Game+Hack – a three-day hackathon where students, teachers, and novices joined developers, designers, and NASA engineers to play with the latest gadgets and build creative mobile apps.

When the first boots of a human being land on Mars, imagine being able to RSVP and attend the event from your living room and actually feel like you were there, right next to the astronauts. Equipped with versions of the augmented and virtual reality technologies currently under exploration at NASA, this is an incredibly […]

One of the biggest obstacles to scientific understanding is our limited ability to interact with technology and big data. This weekend, thousands of people around the world will unite in a massive international hackathon – solving global problems with the power of data and code.

Will 2014 be the year of the hackathon? These massive coding parties are popping up everywhere, inspiring everything from nostalgic ’90s experiments to online real-time collaborative 3D tools. This week on Developer Labs, take a look into the wild world of student hackathons – including two web demos with Leap Motion control.

NASA wants to change how you think about exploring the universe, and it begins with natural user interfaces. In a surprise demonstration at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, NASA scientists Jeff Norris and Victor Luo used the Leap Motion Controller to remotely control a one-ton, six-legged ATHLETE rover located at the […]
