ZEISS Hackathon Munich/Bangalore

VISIONary ideas wanted

If your weekend plans usually include coding, designing, hardware tinkering and energy drinks high in sugar you’ve come to the right place. ZEISS is inviting the unconventional creatives once again to hack one of our core businesses.

Vision is like the fabric that ZEISS is made of. Think of it like the deuterium that drives our warp engine. Not just in a literal sense. Sure, Vision-care is one of our core end-consumer markets, but without visionary ideas none of our businesses would have ever strived. Think about it, our very first product was all about seeing things that no-one has ever seen before. Fast forward to today, ZEISS enables millions of people to go through life with a clear vision.

Everyone’s vision however needs to be examined and adjusted from time to time. To see new things, to not loose the edge, to stay on top of the game. That is what we are looking for in January 2018. Come join us in Munich and Bangalore and turn your vision into a functional prototype.

Rest assured, we will also crank up the replicators to serve a variety of liquid and solid nourishments. Especially the food reviews have been overwhelming last time. Rumor has it the word „Delicious“ was used quite a lot.

So, what’s stopping you? Register now for Munich, Germany or Bangalore, India.
