The devices that inform our daily lives were science fiction in decades past. The barriers that once required giant companies to produce such marvels are starting to crumble. Now, one person with one idea can revolutionize the way we live our lives. Be that person. You Build the Future. You claim The Hackaday Prize.
One hardware hacker will earn a trip into space on a carrier of their choice, and claim The Hackaday Prize. Four other finalists will earn amazing rewards, and hundreds of other entries will be recognized with prizes as well.
We want to foster the spirit of open design. Along with other criteria, judging preference will be given to those projects which exhibit the ideals of Open Hardware and Open Source Software. We want to see the next evolution of connected hardware happen right now, and we want it to be Open.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
