Are you interested in designing for Electronics? Are you aching for a new 3D printer or $200 worth of Adafruit Gear? Well this contest is for you!!
This month’s challenge is to create a design that can be brought to life or used with electronics! You do not need to purchase any electronics to participate, but your design should keep electronics in mind. Entries can include everything from lamp shades, to raspberry pi cases, to light switch covers, and toy cars!
Here’s your opportunity to put your design skills to work and gain some new equipment. Pedro and I will be judging the projects based on ease of printing, design functionality / application, creativity, and presentation. Check out the contest page for more details. Bonus: It’s world wide contest, wohoo!
There’s already 50+ entries and keeps growing! This will certainly be tough to pick the winners. Good luck everyone, and happy making/hacking/printing!!
The Lovely Prizes
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.
