Voting for Project Remake is now open! Thanks to the over-100 makers who submitted their upcycled, remade, or reclaimed materials projects. The winners include salvaged wood designer serving trays, a hot-modded bicycle fender, sports gear fused from discarded plastic bags, a waste veggie oil system, and fashion accessories built from throw-away gift cards.

Vote for the maker you think most deserves to have their project featured under the Project Remake banner at World Maker Faire in NYC this September. You can vote once per day. And because the voting launch was slightly delayed (we apologize for that), we’re extending this voting period through July 11th.

While you’re at it, be sure to enter yourself to walk away with, I mean drive away in, a zero-emission all-electric Nissan LEAF. This “leading, environmentally friendly, affordable, family car,” is powered by a 24 kW·h lithium ion battery and 110 hp electric synchronous motor. You’ll be automatically prompted to enter this sweepstakes upon voting in the Project Remake Contest, but note that this sweepstakes ends firmly at 11:59PM EDT on June 26th. Enter NOW to win!

      hi Crow, Sorry it took a while to finalize the process – chalk it up to complex legalese. Thanks for reading!

        Aaaaand that’s why democracy is not constrained to the decision of one individual.

        • steve

    Looking at the gallery and what they had to choose from some of the finalists seem pretty weak.
