Name the Thing Contest

at 3:46 pm. Filed under Contests

Thanks for all the emails about the contests at Hacked Gadgets. Many of you mentioned that a single contest once a month isn’t enough.

This contest will run for this weekend only. (April 14 and 15, 2007) To enter simply identify the type of motor that is pictured above and give an example of what can be done with it. Please do not give the answer in the comments, email the answer to contest at hackedgadgets.com and put “Name the Thing” as the subject.

The winner will be chosen at random from all of the correct entries.

The winner will get a camera tripod that is shown below (more pictures of it after the jump). This tripod would be great for taking pictures of your latest hacked projects!

Thanks for all the entries. The motor in the picture is a servo motor. They are relatively inexpensive and can be used for many things including manipulating RC vehicle parts.

The winner drawn at random from all the correct entries is Bernard.
