Trinket Contest Winners


Originally Adafruit offered us 20 boards to give away. But when we had so many interesting submissions they were kind enough to throw in some more. We took them up on it, eventually choosing 41 winners… and believe us when we say it was difficult to whittle it down to that number! Thank you to all who took the time and made the effort to send something in.

Organizationally it’s been a challenge keeping all of the submissions straight. That’s why the presentation of the top entries is listed as a set of galleries. More info on each is available on their associated update posts. Congratulations to all! We want to do more giveaways in this same spirit (with different prize hardware and submission themes each time). If you’re interested in that please let us leave your words of encouragement in the comments.

        1. hi fox, it’s me – phil, the founder of hack-a-day :) and i also work at adafruit, hack-a-day is really important to me and always will be, there was a period of time when many of the comments were not constructive or encouraging (especially for young makers) that’s changed a lot, the team at hack-a-day is doing a great job and as this contest showed, it’s fun and interesting to get your project posted on hack-a-day!

  1. I really liked taking part in the contest. It was the reason for me to send in my fist submission, and a great reason to spend the afternoon pushing what I can do with the equipment I have at hand.

    1. I saw that one, and really think you should’ve won one. Sure it wasn’t the prettiest, but you did something great with the limited resources you have. If anything you should’ve won several, since you could probably use them more than people with obviously hundreds or thousands of dollars to spare on fancy machines. :P

  2. I think we should do a follow up… “What I used my trinket for…” not necessarily restricted to just the winners of this contest of course, but given the level of creativity shown here, I suspect the winners offerings would be well worth seeing…
