FirstBuild, Louisville’s microfactory for inventing and developing home appliances, held its fourth annual Mega Hackathon this weekend: “Hack the Home”!

Contestants were encouraged to use the shop tools and materials at this unique makerspace to design and craft something they would find in their dream home of the future.

Among the variety of entries were “The Lazier Susan,” an Alexa-linked smart spice rack; the “Eazeedish,” an ergonomically-friendly top-loading dishwasher; and “astroFREEZE,” a machine to freeze-dry home food.
