Arduino contest!?

Hey there,
:smiley:
Is any Arduino contest scheduled soon? Anybody with suggestions for a subject?!?!

Thanks!

Good idea!

I’d like to see an Arduino controlled LED 7 Segment Display clock.

Hi,

Good idea!

I’d like to see an Arduino controlled LED 7 Segment Display clock.

Not really a clock but …

Is any Arduino contest scheduled soon?

This was mentioned recently: http://www.libelium.com/tienda/catalog/contest.php

Thanks Trialex

Looks good. I would love to see the code so I can have a go at getting one built.

I read about that a while ago. A better way to do a clock is with the timer interrupt library on the playground to create ticks to count.

Edit: oh, and I love the idea of a contest, I’d really love to see the Arduino people host one…

…but that Libelium one doesn’t seem good. At the bottom it says you accept all terms but it doesn’t really list terms. In particular, it says they will acknowledge authorship, but a lot of contests try to seize copyright on all entries. I would be very uncomfortable submitting any work to a webstore I’ve never even heard of. They might be well within their legal rights to sell the winning entries as new kits with nothing more than bragging rights given to the authors.

Also, personally I don’t like their emphasis on video entries.
