The 16 Seriously HILARIOUS prototypes of Garage48 Serious FUN 2016 Hackathon

Garage48 Serious FUN 2016 teams are on fire! We are halfway through of the 48hours at this super funny hackathon with a twist. The day started off  with real entertainment by Mart Normet and Kaaren Kaer. Mart Normet, who is the Head of Entertainment Programmes at Estonian Public Broadcasting, gave his views on jokes and told the participants what jokes make the cut into the programmes of our national television. Kaaren Kaer, who is one of the brains behind the popular sketch show "Tujurikkuja", went through the sketches that were even too funny to be aired. Mart and Kaaren gave also their insights into professional comedy and how to conduct a real joke.

As this is not a usual hackathon, there weren't even the traditional mentoring round after the first Checkpoint. Instead Mart Norman, Kaaren Kaer and Andrus Purde, accompanied also by our design mentor Maido Parv, visited all the teams to tell them how to make their prototypes even more FUN. 

Check yourself if they succeeded in this task of brining a little serious fun into our lives. Here are the 16 prototypes being currently developed here at Garage48 Serious FUN 2016 hackathon in Tallinn.

3. The THRONE
Today, more than ever before, talking about food is a "cool" thing to do. People stress out in public that they are vegan, others even go on a clay diet. Some of us even keep track of the things we eat. But what about the other end? It's just as important for your body to have regular healthy visits to the toilet. The Throne helps you keep track of them. The Throne is a smart toilet, powered by a smart app that gives the user info about aspects of using a toilet - usage regularity, duration, correct sitting position, dehydration, etc., and integrates it into useful health data, vital tips and feedback on a mobile app.
