What happens if a projects submitted but didn't win? Then the project stays open source? For $1,000 USD right, some serious work is involved so opening the source is a hard decision.
Especially as USD 1000 is not very much for a development project. If cash is the only incentive then USD 1000 is only good for some very small project.
Lots of people do projects but not many are willing to share everything for $1,000
considering if they already have a working prototype to get some venture capital or something.
"well, I designed this on paper, but actually getting some boards made would be a pain expense" and actually building enough to sell a few bare boards

And before anyone mentions Kickstarter it's for Americans only ______Rob
