GUNNAR Optiks was happy to be part of the Backplane/Spotify Artist’s Hack at SXSW 2013 along with other notable partners like Coca-Cola, PayPal, NASDAQ, Qualcomm, and EA to support a collaborative hackathon that was dedicated to building the future of music, art, and video. Among others, we were lucky to meet Cory Booker – the current Mayor of Newark, New Jersey.

The hack was held at Raptor House – a short walk from downtown Austin. APIs were in abundance: Spotify, The Echo Nest, SendGrid, Twilio, Youtube, Klout, Paypal, Gimbal, SeatGeek, Aviary, Etsy, Topspin, Chute, Dropbox, Music Dealers and others were all there in force offering their technology for hackers to use.
