The contest invites participants to design a gadget which must incorporate electronic elements and involve sensing, motion, timing and/or networking elements, and to submit instructions on how to build it. The grand prize winner will receive $1,000 plus the opportunity of posting their winning design and kit on MAKE’s new “Makers Market” online marketplace (makersmarket.com).
The Contest is co-sponsored by: Allied Electronics, Alibre and Texas Instruments
