Roundabout dog challenge


The Hack Factory in Minneapolis is throwing a Roundabout Dog challenge. Place a dog sculpture in a roundabout and win eternal fame!

Prize: A picture of your roundabout dog framed and displayed in the basement of Minneapolis’ hackerspace the Hack Factory, bragging rights.

How to Enter: Anyone can enter, kudos if you’re from another hackerspace. Send a picture of your roundabout dog, the gps coordinates (Lat,Long), your name, and anything else you would like to say to

How to Win: A winner will be chosen on February 23rd based on’s decidedly geeky atmospheric noise random number generator. The more dogs you enter, the better chance you have to win.

For those of you in the Minneapolis area, a few brave souls, myself included, will be at the HF’s weekly Wednesday hack meeting on February 2nd, and we will be putting together some roundabout dogs. The meetings are informal and open to the public and usually start around 7pm or so.

The Hack Factory likes roundabout dogs.

    I want to see this automated with a head that spins around to watch drivers as they go around the round-about.

        If we can only get someone to write up some code to find all of the roundabouts on google maps.
