The registration cut-off for The Hackaday Prize is August 4th. But this is not the day you need to have your project finished. You simply need to register your concept before the cutoff. This video walks you through the process, and we’ve included bullet points and links after the break for your convenience.
Here’s what you need to do right away:
- Get an account on Hackaday.io and fill out your profile page
- Start a new project where you can write about your concept and officially submit it to The Hackaday Prize
- Publish a YouTube or Youku video of no more than two minutes that describes the concept of your project.
As the August 4th, 2014 deadline approaches:
- Add details to your project page. We’d like to see at least four build logs and build instructions. These are really easy to flesh out — talk about features, hardware choices, libraries you plan to use, etc.
- Publish a second YouTube or Youku video (again, no more than two minutes) that shows any progress you have made and talks about hardware choices and the features you plan to include in the build. This video should prove to the judges that your concept is viable and will result in a working prototype by the end of the contest in November.
