Well, I guess I paid a certain price for trying to be a gentleman and not vote for myself :biggrin:

Congratulations people, those were very inspiring projects, and totally deserving the prizes!

You will still get a prize :)

 

I did say a cetrain price :smile:

Anyway, the competitors set a really high standard, I'll have to brush up seriously for the next time.

 

Thanks for organizing this! Must have been quite an effort by itself.

What a great set of entries. I really enjoyed checking out all the projects. I'll be attempting Greg's clock myself, and surely having a go at eLua some time soon. The synths were cool and I would challenge Joel to robo-Connect4 except he would surely win. Chicken's project was super original, probably the best write up of all, and I would award a prize just for soldering a QFN. Well done everybody.

YAY tied for last place :)  someones gotta bring up the rear  hehe

 

your project would have been my first pick in a 'utility' category if we would have had one.

but I guess a contest like the one there was for the 555 timer would need many more entries. on the other hand having categories (like 'artistic/blinky', 'utility', 'complex') would be cool in the future.

Congratulations to everyone who entered. A lot of nice projects there. It was difficult picking only one to vote for.

 

For anyone considering the laser cut prize, I can basically manage wood or acrylic up to about 300 x 200mm x 6mm thick (12 x 8 x 0.5"), so ideal for project cases and such. Cutting or vector engraving works well, raster engraving less so. Alternatively if something 3D printed, CNC milled (on a very small mill - only about 120 x 80 x 50mm) or made on a manual lathe suits you better then that's fine. Yes - I've been a bit naughty collecting toys recently.

 

No expiry date, so if you don't have anything you need right now it can wait until you need a something for an upcoming project.

There were so many good projects that there's no shame in that. (When I entered a PoTM I got no votes at all. :mellow: ) Also, yours is a really good useful product for a specific purpose rather that the sort of frivolous fun thing that gets votes.

Update: I'm sending prizes in order as members get to choose what they want. I'm at "chicken" now.

 

Go Chicken! :-)

You almost had my vote, but then came the Scientific Calculator and I'm a sucker for such geekery...
