555 contest prizes piling up

Technology


If you’re considering NOT entering the 555 contest, be sure to peep their list of prizes before you make that decision. There’s a pro Eagle license from Element 14, a scope and DMMs from Extech, XMEGA dev kits, XuLA boards, a Nexus S phone from Google, a couple of Fluke DMMs, a SumoBot competition kit from Digi-Key, and tons, tons more. Here are the rules. The deadline is March 1st. Enter early and often, and good luck!

Also, NYC hackerspace Alpha One Labs is suggesting a 555 focus for the 16th Global Synchronous Hackathon to be held the 19th of February — a great opportunity to finish up your project in a single night.

    Ah 555, so many fond memories from my childhood. If inspiration strikes, I’ll have to enter something, but for the life of me I can’t think of any truly good projects for it (that haven’t already been done). A very simple challenge, that’s simply challenging.

    Good luck to all the participants, hope something good occurs to you!
