Name the Thing Contest – 111

at 3:50 am. Filed under Contests


The prize this week is one of my Button Code kits. This kit was lots of fun to make and it provides a unique way to enter in a secure code. You can see documentation about it here, if you want to get your own Button Code kit they are available here (if you buy one and also win the contest I will just refund your payment if you like). This contest will run for one week (Dec 19 – 25, 2009) . Ending time is based on central standard time. To enter, identify the item pictured above and give an example of what can be done with it.

Please do not give the answer in the comments.

Send an email to contest @ hackedgadgets.com with “Name the Thing Contest” as the subject, and the message body consisting of:

  • The name of the item in the above picture
  • An example of what the item pictured above can be used for

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