Hackaday Hardware Contest

Hackaday Hardware Contest

 

This is the coolest DIY electronic contest I have seen yet. I am sure it will get a ton of entries because of the grand prize, a trip to space! If you happen to win the grand prize but think that space is a bit over the top for your nerves you can always just take the cash equivalent which is close to $200K!!!! Of course there are still a ton of other great prizes to be won.

“The Hackaday Prize challenges hardware hackers to change their world by innovating in connected devices. In keeping with the community values of Hackaday.com, The Hackaday Prize encourages use of opensource technologies and reuse of submissions by the hardware hacking community.”
