The competition is over, the results are in and we want to offer a big thank you to everyone who has taken part.
The three winners will be the first to receive a first edition Zoybar hardware kit in the whole universe !!! ;-)
Itouch Guitar 2.0 by Brian Green came top in the site chart view count. You've done a good job man, Congratulations.
Congratulations also go to Paul Maddox (VacoLoco) introducing his project GorF 019, Paul's words:
"GorF will be 100% open source (GPLv3), the schematics are already available on my site, and a prototype PCB (100mm by 80mm) has been ordered, once I've built it using this PCB and confirmed it works, the PCB files and code will be published so others can build one and tinker with the code to suit their own needs... I hope that by giving these projects to the community it will encourage people to develop their ideas and create new things I can't even imagine!"
We're looking forward to see these skills integrated with the Zoybar hardware.
The third winning video will bring a smile even to the most cynical viewer "Building a Single String Chicken Cooker" by Iner Souster is a great funny, easygoing tutorial that really sets the mod to go and do stuff. Loved the background soundtrack and the whole editing.
I've attached this TEDtalk of Charles Leadbeater on the new models of innovation and the tools they need.
Leadbeater weaves a tight argument that innovation isn't just for professionals anymore.
Passionate amateurs, using new tools, are creating products and paradigms that companies can't. He describes the rising role of serious amateurs ("Pro-Ams," as he calls them) through the story of the evolution of the mountain bike.
The creative innovations that were submitted to the contest are a great start in making this concept a reality.
