GENERATOR is a new kind of conference event. From the people who brought you HAXLR8R. There will be hardware. And industrial music. And augmented reality steampunk goggles. And maybe a jetpack or two. GENERATOR is for the children. GENERATOR is against demons.

OK, OK, it's going to be mainly people talking on a stage for now. But interesting people. You like stories. We like stories too. And, amazingly, it's completely free!

We hosted GENERATOR V1.0 in Shenzhen last January (full recap here), and since it was awesome we realized that the best place to host a serious conference about hardware startups was... well, Shenzhen again.

So there you have it: the global and - more importantly - local hardware scene will gather on April 5th, 2014, for some action and share their experiences, successes and failures on a stage which will also allow participants to play with the latest innovations in the space. We'll keep it real.

Who is this for? Entrepreneurs, wannabe entrepreneurs, product designers, hackers, factories, suppliers, solderers...
