Just in case we haven’t hammered it into your skull quite yet, we’re having a little contest over on Hackaday.io. It’s The Hackaday Prize, where everyone on Hackaday.io is invited to build something cool for the chance of winning a trip to space and hundreds of other prizes.
We know not everyone has the desire, skills, or the time to build a project, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still contribute. We’re holding a community voting round right now. Each week, we have a new round of community voting with a new theme. This week, we’re asking the Hackaday.io community to select the project that is most likely to be widely used. What do you have to do to participate? Just go over to the voting page, and choose between two projects our especially fair voting algorithm pulled from current Hackaday Prize entries. Pick the project that best meets the theme of the week.
Why would anyone want to do this? This Friday, I’ll be taking a look at everyone on Hackaday.io, pulling a number out of a hat, and if that person voted in the current round of voting, they win a thousand dollar gift card to the Hackaday store. We’re also giving away Hackaday t-shirts to random people who have voted each week.
The only losing move is not to play, so go over to the voting page and pick the projects that best meet the theme, “most likely to be widely used.”
