Arduino, the open source electronics platform, has software and hardware so easy to use that it inspires much in the way of creative 3D printed projects. Now it is time to show off some of these creations in Instructables-sponsored Arduino All The Things! Contest. This contest features submissions made with the Arduino (or another) microcontroller, and you still have time to participate.
With 19 days left and 19 prizes for winners, 217 people have already submitted entries (as of the time of editing). You should take a moment to consider the range of entries we already see posted on the contest entry page. Some of the entries may inspire your own imagination when it comes to 3D printed and microcontrolled creations. Even better: you can also vote on your favorite entries and play your part in deciding who will win prizes in this already competitive contest.
Are you wondering how to enter? If you have ever gone to the Instructables website before you have seen how each Instructable is formatted to take readers through every step in the creation process of your device, gadget, or 3D printed object. Well, that is precisely what you have to do with your own entry: make your own step by step photo or video Instructable following the guidelines. After you upload your Instructable you’ll notice checkboxes for open contests. Choose Arduino All The Things! contest. You’ll receive notice of your acceptance into the contest within one business day, Monday through Friday, by a Instructables business staff person.
You have until January 25, 2016 at 11:59 PT to enter submissions, and it’s the submission time here that matters to ensure your participation, not the acceptance time. In other words, if you submit an entry right before closing time, you will be notified of its acceptance after the contest is officially closed. Multiple entries are permitted, but you can only win prizes for one of them.
Another perk is that you can vote for your favorite entry, and you have until 3 days after the contest closes to enter your vote. Contest finalists will be judged by a panel constituted by Instructables staff and members of the community, and winners will be announced on the contest page.
As with all contests, there are some prizes here that may further motivate your to enter. All winners receive an Instructables prize package that includes a t-shirt with the robot logo. 10 runners up will receive an Arduino Pro Mini 328, 5 second prize winners will receive a 2.8″ TFT Touch Shield for Arduino with Resistive Touch Screen and an Adafruit “Music Maker” MP3 Shield for Arduino w/3W Stereo Amp – v.10. 3 first prize winners will receive a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 and a 2.8″ TFT Touch Shield for Arduino with Resistive Touch Screen. The top prize is an M3D Micro 3D Printer Bundle valued at $489.00.
If these great prizes aren’t enough to spark your imagination and motivate you to enter, you can check out the 217 posted entries on the contest webpage. Best of luck to all participants! Let us know if you will be participating in this challenge in the Arduino All Things forum thread on 3DPB.com.
