The Emhart "Create the Future" Contest—sponsored by Emhart Teknologies, ABP International, and NASA Tech Briefs—gives designers a chance to make their ideas a reality, and win some big prizes in the process. Contestants may enter one of four design categories: Everyday Products, Medical, Safety, or Transportation. Judging will be based on innovation, manufacturability, marketability, and cost-effectiveness. The prize list is expansive, but the grand prize is a choice of either a 2005 Toyota Prius or $20,000 cash. Entries must received by November 19, 2004. For more info, go to www.emhartcontest.com.
