LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Calling all designers, engineers, students and foodies.
Saturday, GE Appliance's 'FirstBuild,' kicked off their two-day event, the Future of Cooking Hackathon.
It's about people from all walks of life, working together to develop the next generation of cooking devices
"If you think about the little annoyances you might have with the way the handle feels or the way the door to an appliance opens, this is the opportunity to fix some of those things that aren't perfect," Justin Berger said. "We're able to look at, not just the pain points, but what's gonna make this even easier to use in the future and the cool new technical things we can incorporate in the way our appliances work and make our lives easier so we can make better food."
More than 200 people signed up for the Hackathon.
Prizes include cash and hardware.
Judging begins Sunday afternoon, followed by the announcement of the winners.
