Skatehack is an urban research project with a focus on sports, open source technologies and DIY hacking. Skatehack hosts various projects, events and workshops for young adults all over the world to develop, create and share new experiences in the urban environment using open source software, hardware and digital tools.
Skatehack started in 2010 as an investigation, reflection and critique on current trends of ownership in physical and virtual environments and since then has developed projects for kids who aren’t attracted to traditional team sports to go and express themselves in a creative, scientific and athletic manner.
Skatehack has constructed interactive skateboard ramps in the US, Sweden and Norway demonstrating how open source tools and technology can be used to reshape our environment.
