We require all Residency applicants to provide documentation of their project on Hackaday.io. If selected, Resident teams are expected to document their progress regularly on Hackaday.io as well. Although we are looking for ambitious projects to be realized in the DesignLab, the projects you share in your application don’t need to be. We’d like to see projects that are related to the work you’d like to do in the DesignLab. Again, we do need to see good documentation, so make a tutorial, design a printed circuit board, or build your next mechanical project in CAD.
Ideal candidates will either have existing Hackaday.io projects, or leap at the opportunity to document their projects there, show aptitude for getting through the last 20% of a project, and have a project that is compelling both from a technological and design perspective. We welcome all applications including art, pure science, product development, and passion projects.
