Introducing the Modern CTO Geek Night Out World Tour

Technology event featuring drones, world renowned geek celebrities and next-gen super robots.


Founder of Modern CTO, Joel Beasley, is set to host Geek Night Out – an inspiring 90 minute high energy, technology show targeting the next generation of entrepreneurs, technologists, and engineers. Says Joel “For one night only, we will transform the college stadium into a tech paradise.”

Starting late spring 2018, Geek Night Out will take place at 16 designated universities over the course of a year, including: New York, Washington D.C., Phoenix, Seattle, Toronto, Stockholm, London, and more!

Geek Night Out will be live streamed to every university and online for the world to see. Live streams will be all open sourced.

Highlights of this exciting event

  • An opening drone light show where the drones are synced with modern music mixed by a live DJ. A monster aerial drone flies around and gets shots of the crowd – which will show on the media screen.
  • A special guest interview with a world renowned celebrity geek – #HighProfile, #ThinkBig.
  • Advice from local technologists, CTO’s, and engineers who are popular locally. They will share valuable insight and advice to the next generation.
  • Amazingly advanced next-gen super robots and technology. Think the likes of Cassie and Boston Dynamics.
  • Closing high energy drone show finale.

Geek Night Out will also feature fun, intelligent and engaging commentary and banter between the host, special guest and the roboticists; announcements of the winners of Hardware Hack and Software Hack competition; Elon-Musk-style flamethrowers (dependent on the safety officer of the venue); the contest winners will get to introduce and shoot the flamethrower.
