Contest: win Push Showcase tickets

Who is ready to win some tickets to the PUSH N900 Showcase?

The showcase is an event where all 5 teams from the Push N900 competition are going meet up in London and present their N900 hacks. Including N900s that fly, skate, Etch a Sketch(TM), and more. We also hear there is going to be a poll-dancing robot thanks to [Giles Walker]. We were given tickets to the event, and decided to pass them along to our readers.

How can you gain a pair of tickets to this magical showcase? Check out after the break – hope you know a thing or two about resistors.

You’re working with any one of the team winners in the PUSH N900 competition. Your team needs two like resistors in order to complete the project on time.

Luckily your work drawer is overflowing with resistors, and you know that there are only 4 different values since you pulled them yourself from old junk.

You close your eyes and reach in. What is the minimum amount of resistors you have to pull out to ensure 2 of the same value?

That’s it? Yep! Send in your answer to the email Competition@HackaDay.com and two lucky winners will receive a pair of Tickets to the PUSH N900 showcase.
