Build next generation devices for our future smart cities. From better-designed traffic lights, to connected homes, urban farms and citizen information services, what will you build?
We are asking you to design a system that could be implemented in homes or cities to make them smarter, better and more modern. Get started by submitting your idea to the Pre-Contest, if you win you (and 99 others) will receive a free Arduino-compatible Linkit ONE and a $25 gift certificate to Seeed Studio!
For the second part of the contest, make your idea a reality and publish detailed instructions to Hackster. The first place winner will receive an iPad Pro 32gb. Second place receives an iPad mini 4 16GB. Third place receives a new Apple TV. All three finalists receive Seeed Studio service credit for Free PCB layout & DFM review ($1,000 value).
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.
