Contest brief

We live in a connected world, with most people using WiFi or Bluetooth in their lives every day. If you have got an interesting idea that encompasses electronic hardware design and includes wireless connectivity then why not turn your idea into a reality, and enter your project into our contest.

We have got a huge $5000 prize pot up for grabs for 13 lucky winners, along with 50 Electromaker gift packs which will be awarded to the entries we feel deserve a reward.

Not only are we offering great prizes, but the first 100 people to submit their project idea and get it approved by the Electromaker team can choose to receive a piece of hardware worth up to $50 from! The hardware should be used as the basis of your design, or add-on board for your project.

Maybe your project could connect to your phone; perhaps it could talk to your laptop or even your doorbell. Whatever it does, as long as it uses some sort of wireless technology we want to see it.
