A professional workshop to design and prototype a new IoT service that matters
Claro, WebVisions, MOB and MADE makerspace are collaborating to host a two day Internet of Things Lab for Social Good in Barcelona (17-18 of June), after great success in Portland and Chicago. During two days, Makers, Hardware Hackers and Developers will meet with experienced Designers and Strategists for a two day jam session to develop and prototype IoT-enabled solutions for real world problems. It is not an IoT 101 but a great professional and personal experience. You can use your own prototyping tools with our frameworks to develop innovative concepts and prototype physical and software products with 3D printers or code. Who knows you come up with the next IoT startup, meeting some of your potential team-members. Forget the internet-connected fridge – we want to prototype products and services that use the tech to provide something that people really need.
Tues., June 17, 9:30 – 19:00 (approximately)
Ideation, planning and product development work sessions.
Wed., June 18, 9:30 – 21:00 (approximately)
Work sessions, product finalization and presentation of prototypes.
What to bring:
Bring your favourite prototyping tools and gadgets along, you’ll need them! MADE also will provide tools f.ex. 3D printer and laser cutter. Teams will present their final product or service concept in the way that shows it best – including video, rapid prototypes, wireframes.
Thanks to the following sponsors:
It is a hands-on masterclass and workshop. The Barcelona IoT Lab is two days of intensive problem-solving and prototyping. It will start with coffee and introductions at 9h30 on Tuesday 17th of June at the MADE maker space. We’ll share Claro’s perspective on the IoT, then dive straight into a full two days of brainstorming, designing and prototyping new IoT product and service concepts. Claro will provide tools and methods designed especially for innovating in this space and teams will finish with a well-defined service, product and business model and potentially new collaborators and friends to bring it to life.
Get in the mix…When you are building something that crosses both peoples’ digital and physical lives you need a team of people that think differently from each other. This is why we are ensuring the workshop will have an even distribution of designers, developers, strategists, and makers. Each team can work in smaller groups to make sure each part of the concept is developed – from the product design to the hardware and software to the UX, business model and delivery to the customer.
Come and join us! It’s open to anyone – attendee of the WebVisions conference or not. We’re looking for experienced makers, developers, designer and strategists who want to explore the Internet of Things in a new way and get together with other people to apply creative thinking and experience to the process.
At the end of the lab, the participants’ will choose a winning team that gets free two-days passes to the Webvisions conference! The other teams will get a 25% discount. Furthermore everybody gets publicity, connections and the chance to meet some potential co-founders or even come up with an IoT startup after the lab.
When? Tuesday June 17th and Wednesday June 18th
Where? MADE maker space, c / Bailen 11 , Barcelona
Who? The workshop will be led by Aldo de Jong and Sebastian Dehling of Claro Partners.

BYO: If you have equipment and resources you’d like to bring along to work with to design, develop and prototype your ideas, feel free! Teams will present their final service concept in the way that shows it best – including video, rapid prototypes, wireframes.
We also did an IoT Lab in Portland, Oregon, the 5th and 6th of May. You can read more about it here.
