Have a project that moves? Then get it entered this week for your chance at one of 15 quadcopters. We’ll award a Crazyflie 2.0 to each of 15 fantastic examples of projects that move with wings, wheels, or propellers (the kind on boats or on flying things). Here’s what you need to do before Thursday, 7/9/15:
- Officially enter your project in the 2015 Hackaday Prize
- Go to this discussion and leave a comment requesting that your project to be added to the list
That’s all you need to do to be considered. But there’s a lot you can do to help improve your chances of winning. We love to see images, so make sure you have a least one picture in the main gallery. Start your project documentation with a clear and concise description of what you’re doing with the project and how you plan to accomplish that. And a components lists is always helpful!
We had a great time judging the manufacturer sponsor contests this week. We’ll be announcing the 200 winners of those contests over the next few days.
Oh yeah, one last time… you’re going to want to make sure you VOTE right away, because someone’s going to win big this week. [Brian] will tell you more about that tomorrow ;-)

I’d like to enter my submission for 2014 HAD prize, but it’s a completed project and I’m feeling a bit bad by recycling it for this contest… What does the HAD staff/community think about resubmitting previous completed projects?
I think you are fine… Semifinalists from last time are ineligible. Snippet of the rules is below, see full rules for more details.
… “Projects that were selected as Semifinalists in previous presentations of The Hackaday Prize are not eligible for entry in this Contest, however, the contestants who developed those projects may enter with a substantially different project, provided they are otherwise eligible under these Official Rules.
Existing projects, or projects that were entered in previous presentations of The Hackaday Prize but did not advance to at least the Semifinal round are eligible for submission as entries in this Contest with the following restrictions:”…..
You’re good, and we’re recommending everyone (who wasn’t in the final fifty last year) resubmit their projects. You have been working on it all year, right?
$179.97 for a brushed toy quad.. someones taking the piss.
Does that mean rockets, treads, and ion drives are out?
What about my fart propulsion unit?
I am entering with a new entry: Solar B.E.A.M. Bristlebot just to hack my way into this contest. This is going to be the cheapest entry with parts I have on hand. I think I can take that type of risk. :)
What about legs?
Does the project have to be complete by the 9th of July, or just entered? When is the actual judging?
It just needs to be entered by then.
the water of my shower moves, does that count? =P, or i could add some wheels to my bathroom
