hack4ears – Invitation to the Hackathon

What does the word »hearable« make you think of? How do you imagine the future of hearing and how does it feel? What is important for you in everyday life?

To get to the bottom of these questions, the »Hear How You Like To Hear« project at Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg invites everyone with an interest to come to Fab Lab Berlin and take part in the Hearable Hackathon.

The event starts on Friday, 29.06.2018. A jury will commend the three best ideas. We will publish the winners as well as the ideas not awarded prizes on the Fraunhofer IDMT website, the citizen science platform »Bürger schaffen Wissen« and Join in and create new ideas for the hearables and co. of tomorrow!

Whatever your speciality - IT, design or sound - or simply if you find the topic fascinating: It is up to you in this hackathon whether you focus on individualised solutions for everyday use, create new designs or let your imagine run wild and dream up futuristic ideas. Laser cutters, 3D printers, modelling material and tools are at your disposal on site.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
