For nearly three days in mid-September, a gaggle of Penn students were consuming copious amounts of take-out food and coffee. While this may be a regular occurrence on campus, these 50 students were hacking and creating as part of the second PennHacks. The event isn't your stereotypical software hackathon  that's the domain of PennHacks' big sister PennApps  but is instead a hardware-based hackathon making use of microcontrollers, Arduino, temperature sensors, gyroscopes, and components from whatever else can be effectively disassembled.
