The winners of all the previous contests have been announced and the items have all been added to the old contest pages. The contest this week will be a bit different, you still need to name the thing but the winner will be the first one to correctly identify the item above in the comments. Images of the item will be added above from time to time until someone guesses it. Each new image will provide a bit more information about what it could be.  The prize this week is a cable tester which will make sure your home made cables are working correctly. This contest will run for one week (July 2 – 8, 2011). Ending time is based on central standard time. To enter, identify the item pictured above.

Please read the contest instructions below since this contest is a new trial format.

Enter your guess below in the comments consisting of:

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

You can have one guess per new image that is added, if you have more than one guess per image revealed the additional guesses will not be considered. The first person to guess the item is the winner. Please note that there are multiple comment validation systems attempting to prevent spam comments. After you leave a comment it may need to be manually approved before it is shown. If the winning comment is in moderation it will still be considered the winner even if there is one that is displayed first on the site (but entered after the winning one).

    Added the remainder of the images that were in the queue. I thought it might take the second last one before it was guessed since I was expecting HDMI extension cable to be the obvious guess after image 8.

    Not sure if this format is better than the email in version…
