One Square Inch Expanded in the Time Dimension

No, we’re not talking about spooky feats of General Relativity. But you should know that the Return of the Square Inch Project just got its deadline extended.

If you missed the call the first time around, our favorite user-contributed contest on Hackaday.io is up and running again. Hackaday.io tossed in some good money for prizes, and folks started thinking about what functionality they could cram inside a 25.4 mm x 25.4 mm square. But while one constraint can help bring out creativity, adding a tight deadline to a tight squeeze caused a number of our entrants to ask for an extension.

If you’re working on the Square Inch Project, you’ve got until October 1st to get your boards ready. Breathe a quick sigh of relief and then get back to soldering! We’re looking forward to seeing all the great entries.

    Something to bug the Cuban embassy with. :-D

    1. The 25.4 x 25.4 mm requirement only applies to the PCB itself. Attaching a one meter tall light bulb or vacuum tube to it is fair game as long as all connections are made to the PCB.

      Thanks for extending this one – I hadn’t even had a chance to get started on my idea.

  2. Hmm. I might actually have time to get boards manufactured. Maybe.
    Was expecting this to be mostly a mental exercise, unless I paid for some european PCB vendor, etched my own boards or got courier shipping for some china fab.
