Trinket Everyday Carry Contest Drawing #1 Results

We just had our first drawing for the Trinket Everyday Carry Contest. Thanks to a little help from random.org, the winner is [Korishev] with his project Trinket Timer!

korishev-trinket-timer[Korishev] finds that family life calls for a lot of timed events, from how long the kids spend on their homework to keeping the peace by sharing toys. The plan is to build at least a one timer for each child that they will be able to carry around and use as needed. We hope he gets them in on the build to help sow the seeds of hardware development at a young age.

trinket-prize-blink1As the winner of the first drawing [Korishev] will receive this beautiful BLINK(1) MK2 from The Hackaday Store. The USB dongle houses a programmable RGB LED. We wonder if this will also be applied as an additional timer for the household?

If you didn’t win this week, don’t worry, there are still four more chances to win a random drawing! Our next drawing will be on 12/9/2014 at 9pm EST with the Cordwood Puzzle as a prize. To be eligible you need to submit your project as an official entry and publish at least one project log during the week.

The deadline for the main contest is January 2, 2014! There are just over 40 entries right now, and the top 50 will receive custom t-shirts. Of course the three top prizes are the real juicy ones. Let’s get those pocketable projects going!

    1. > does winning one of the random drawings disqualify you for the rest of them? I don’t think so, but I don’t know…

      The chances of that happening next week – without anyone else entering the contest – is 0.0657%. The official answer is, ‘no, if your number is chosen again after winning in one week, you don’t get a second prize.’ The real-world answer is, ‘That’s just not going to happen.’

        1. I think he calculated in the
          “The official answer is, ‘no, if your number is chosen again after winning in one week, you don’t get a second prize.’ ”
          to arrive at the 0.00657%

          1. I think he’s wrong. I see is up to 40+ now, and he’s calculating the chance of any single person winning twice. I have a .0065% chance of winning twice, but today’s winner has a 2.5% of winning the next drawing, just like everyone else. So there is a 2.5% chance the same person will win again next week.

  1. Thanks to Hackaday for having this contest and picking my name! I’m really excited about building the Trinket Timer, and getting a chance to dig into the Blink(1) MK2. I can’t wait to watch everyone’s progress as we get closer to the January deadline, there are some really great projects in the contest.
