HOW TO – Win a BrightStar laser cutter

HOW TO – Win a BrightStar laser cutter

This is a big deal, you could win a laser cutter. A laser cutter is a fantastic tool, you can use it for anything and everything… This is the contest of the year for Makers, go win it –

You’ve seen all the sweet laser cutter Instructables, and dreamed about the projects you’d build if you had one.

First you’ll tattoo your laptop, then build your own army of Autonomous, Self-Assembling Robots; next you might grab a little press for your new laser-cutter-based army by etching Martha Stewart’s face in an eggplant, then finally relax and recharge with some Laser cut cake.

Quit dreaming and get working, because Instructables is giving away a BrightStar LG3040 laser cutter package worth over $6000!

    Seems a little unfair. If you have access to make something “spectacular” you have a shot at it. So it boils down to whoever has the most money to build the brightest shiniest toy wins.

    If it’s a contest, why not just have people fill out the standard form, and allow them to enter. At least that way, it’s not nepotism for the favoured few who manage to impress.

    Tercero- that’s not true, you just needs make something.

    look at LED throwies, costs less than a $1 or so and that was a HUGE project that has even won awards.

    i like that you need to make something to win as opposed to random lottery stuff.

    I agree with Tercero on this one. A person could spend a lot of time and effort making a good instructable that only appeals to a limited audience, and wouldn’t have much chance of winning.

    Also, those with more resources and skills can make the “flashier” projects that get the attention.

    While I think its great that people are asked to make a legitimate instructable, it would seem a lot more fair if all legitimate submissions were entered into a drawing.
