Print the best mascot, win a shiny new Makerbot

If you’ve always wanted a 3D printer, here’s your chance to win one. Makerbot Industries wants the Internets to design a new mascot for them. The contest winner will receive a Makerbot Thing-o-matic.

Don’t worry about a chicken or egg situation with this contest. You don’t actually need to print your design (although printability is a quality considered when judging). All you need to do to enter is upload your design files before the deadline on September 28th. Designs must be robot themed, and anything uploaded as Private will be made Public after contest results are announce. It should be fun looking through all of the submissions. There’s several other design restrictions so make sure to read carefully before you get to work.

Those that would rather work with a soldering iron than design plastic robot parts need not despair. You haven’t missed the deadline for the 7400 Logic contest, which is accepting entries through October 21st.

    No spell checker? :D

    Hmm – I fancy some makerbot kit though!

    Wrong deadline?

    The 7400 Logic contest says (under rules last point):
    Entries must be received by October 21, 2011, 6AM GMT. Winners will be announced on this webpage by November 1, 2011.

    Macot? Jesus.

    Who needs a makerbot more than someone who already has one? Prize fail.

    Yeah, “Quick someone send Make something so they can repackage your IP and sell it.” is more like the contest.

    Chances are that if you have the software and know how to design something suitable to be printed then you’ve probably got a makerbot of some kind to begin with, or easy access to one.
