Thanks to everyone who entered the contest for a set of unpopulated Tricorder boards. There were some wonderful and creative entries, and it was very hard to draw only a few winners. Here they are:
Adam Louis: An audio engineer who envisions adding sound sensing capabilities to Tricorders, and using them for home inspection. He’ll be receiving the set of Mark 1 Tricorder boards, as well as an LCD screen, dsPIC microcontroller, display controller, and a Cirque touchpad generously donated to the contest by Cirque!
Amanda M: Who envisions using a Tricorder everywhere from hikes to in the cell biology lab, and would love to build one with her boyfriend. She’ll be receiving a set of unpopulated Mark 2 boards!
Jonathan List: A dad, who wants to build a Tricorder with his son someday. This totally struck a soft spot with me, given that my dad and I used to sit together and build projects when I was little. Jonathan and his son are the winners of the Sparkfun Inventor’s Kit for Arduino, which should get them started sensing their worlds!
Thanks again to everyone who entered, and stay tuned for the next contest!
