The folks at Wild Planet saw Jake Hildebrandt’s head-mounted display hack and our item here and posted the following contest offer to our Comments:

Thanks to Jake, for the great hack! So sorry the website is out of stock.
Our engineering group has a bin of extra headsets (pre-production samples,
engineering test units, etc.) we’d like to make available to 10 clever

Email us with a one-paragraph proposal of what cool thing you’re going to
do with your own cyborg headset. Best 10 answers we receive by 5PM tomorrow
(Oct. 10) receive a headset. No guarantees-these aren’t production samples,
but they’re free, right?

email us: hack(at)wildplanet(dot)com

Much love,
Wild Planet Engineering Team
