I started this blog as a way to track my team (team = Dave Barrett and my team mate Martin Wilson) in this year’s Red Bull Creation challenge. We received our Bullduino (pictured) on Thursday 6/21, which was the first signal that we were entered in the qualification round. As far as I know, here’s how it works. You enter the contest for free, and tell a little bit about yourself and your team here: http://creation.redbullusa.com/
If you get a Bullduino- you’re in the first round. The object of the first round is to make something, anything, using the Bullduino, and submit it with a film of your creation and your team. 12 submitting teams will be selected to compete in a 72 hour maker contest occurring July 19-22. You’ll be competing from your own hacker/creation space and the world can watch the contest occur live. The top prize is $10,000.
I’ve spent the last 3 days cranking away on an idea. I think it’s going to work, so let me post some details!
