Let’s kick off the new year together with This happened Rotterdam #5 at WORM! On Monday January 12th 2015 we are proud to present you an evening of fascinating projects to enjoy and discuss:


  • Mike van Gaasbeek (WORM) will talk about Superglue. Superglue lets you create a personal website without any knowledge of code and host it on a mini server from the privacy of your own home.

  • Martijn van der Heijden & Bart Bergmeijer from Fabrique will talk about veiliginternetten.nl and its experimental approach: develop a concept, set up a working prototype and a user test within three days, with content only. ‘Content first design’ sounds good, but what happend when you take this literally?

  • Marcel van Heist, partner at Afdeling Buitengewone Zaken, will talk about the Rural Spark Energy Kit and how they used their ‘hidden design’ method to develop it. This kit allows rural villagers in India to become Local Energy Suppliers who generate, use and sell energy.

  • Harm van de Ven, designer/developer at media collective Zesbaans, will talk about Waterwerk an installation which invites visitors to a recreational swimming pool to swim/play video games together.
