Seven members from Eugene Maker Space have formed a team to compete in this year’s Red Bull Creation Challenge. The team received a custom Arduino board from Red Bull last Wednesday called a Bullduino. The current challenge is to build anything using this Bullduino board. The team has come up with a pretty involved project and has been working almost round the clock at the EMS shop to get it done in time. The project has to be completed, filmed, and uploaded by July 3rd, so there is less than one week left.
After July 3, a team of industry experts will judge all of the entries and choose 12 teams to move on to the final round. In the final round, the teams will be provided with a theme. Each team will have 72 hours to build something around that common theme. The entire 72 hour event will be streamed live on the Internet. The winner of that contest will receive $10,000 in tool prizes.
Wish our Eugene Maker Space team luck in the competition and keep an eye out here for updates. They are keeping the project under wraps during the development phase, but once the deadline has been reached we will upload a video and some more detailed explanations so stay tuned!
