If you are like me, you love sitting in front of your 3D printer being mesmerized by its motions, as it fabricates your next little trinket. I have found myself staring at the print bed for over 30 minutes straight, in somewhat of a trance. Usually I ask my wife if she can guess what I’m printing, and for the most part she gets it wrong every time, until the very end. We actually make this a little household game.
It can be hard to distinguish what’s being fabricated, especially with support material all over the place. A couple of weeks ago, Radioshack took the guessing game which I often play with my wife to the next level. Now, in what is actually their 3rd ‘Guess The 3D Print’ competition, they are giving away a couple of prizes to one person who can guess the print based on a couple of pictures that they have been posting on their Twitter feed.
Participation in the contest is quite simple. Just follow RadioShack’s Twitter feed, where they have been posting images of the print all day long. If you think you know what the print is of, simply create your own Tweet with the #RS3DPrint hashtag, along with your guess, and if correct you will be entered into a drawing.
RadioShack will then choose the winner at random, from those who had guessed correctly. They will contact the winner privately prior to the end of the week. Once the winner is confirmed, they will send out an announcement. Unlike the dinner I usually buy my wife when she guesses correctly, RadioShack will be providing a $50 gift card along with the object which has been printed.
The contest, which runs from 9:30am until 9:30pm EST tonight, has a few rules and guidelines which you must follow:
- Your guess should be at least ‘mostly right’ to qualify for the drawing.
- If you’ve won something in the last month, Please sit out of this contest
- Vulgar suggestions will be automatically disqualified.
- Open to US residents only
Let us know what you have guessed (after the contest is over of course) in the RadioShack contest thread at 3DPB.com.
This is quite the clever marketing tactic for RadioShack who has a history of incorporating 3D printing into their marketing strategies. For instance their Super Bowl commercial back in February featured Jason from ‘Friday The 13th’ along with a 3D printer. Below are the three images which have been tweeted by the company thus far, from earliest to latest. Hurry up, as this contest will end within a few hours!
