Round 3 of Community Voting has drawn to a close. This time around we had nearly 60,000 votes for 420 projects! The first voter lottery drawing didn’t turn up a winner, but on Friday we ended up giving away the bench supply. We’ll cover the projects with the top votes in just a moment, but first let’s take a look at the voter lottery prize for the new round.
You must vote at least once in this new round to be eligible for the voter lottery on Friday!
We’ve got so many prizes in the package for the fourth round of Astronaut or Not that we’re just showing you a few in this image.
On Friday morning we’ll be drawing a random number and checking it against the Hacker profiles on Hackaday.io. If that person has voted in this current round, they win. If not, they’ll be kicking themselves (emptyhandedly) for not taking part in the festivities.
This week’s prize package includes:
- Terasic Technologies DE0 Development Board for Cyclone III FPGA
- Raspberry Pi Model B+ Board
- Element14 BeagleBone Black
- MSP430F5529 USB LaunchPad Evaluation Kit
- SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 LaunchPad

- ST-LINK/V2 ST Microelectronics In-Circuit Debugger/Programmer

* 8 of these projects were recognized in previous rounds and already have T-shirts on the way to them. This time around those multiple-winners are awarded the prestige of being on top again. But we’ll just be sending shirts to the 15 projects that didn’t win earlier. Here’s eight that nearly made the top projects in this second round of voting:
