We’re laser etching up some iPads soon for a contest, woo!
Epilog Laser, the leading producer of CO2 and fiber laser engraving, cutting and marking systems today announced the company is teaming with Adafruit Industries to sponsor the iPad Contest, presented by Gizmodo.
“Engraving tech-gadgets is unbelievably popular right now”. Beginning March 15, Gizmodo will start accepting design entries for possible laser engraving on the highly-anticipated iPad. Two winners will be selected and each will receive a laser engraved iPad featuring each participant’s respective design. Finalists will be picked by the Gizmodo staff, Adafruit and Epilog. After the top 10 are selected, Gizmodo readers will vote for the two grand-prize winners. Adafruit will donate the engraving services on their Epilog Laser, and Epilog will donate the iPads for the contest.
“Engraving tech-gadgets is unbelievably popular right now,” said Mike Dean, director of sales and marketing for Epilog Laser. “We’re happy to donate the iPads for the competition and are excited to team with Gizmodo and Adafruit. It’s a perfect fit because we can connect with people who really understand what our product can do – the designers, the DIY crowd, the inventors – all of those who genuinely appreciate what lasers are capable of.”
The iPad Contest opens March 15 and runs through midnight PDT April 3. The competition is open to all U.S. residents 18 and older. Complete rules can be found at gizmodo.com and adafruit.com. For more information visit www.epiloglaser.com.
