Dream up an IoT solution, make it with Arduino 101, submit it to #IntelHacks2017 to compete for prizes #IntelMakers
Devpost and Intel are running Intel Hacks, an online hackathon for building an IoT project using Arduino 101.
The Arduino 101 development board, powered by the Intel Curie Module, packs Bluetooth connectivity, a six-axis accelerometer/gyroscope, and gesture recognition. It makes building an amazing IoT project simple.
Makers and IoT innovators who build a project using Arduino 101 to improve their daily routine will be in the running for cash prizes totaling $20,000. Plus, up to 150 teams will be awarded a FREE Arduino 101 and Grove Sensor Kit to kickstart their project! Just submit your project idea before June 6. If you already have an Arduino 101, you can begin building right away. Completed projects are due July 28.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
