Seven members from Eugene Maker Space have formed a team to compete in this year’s Red Bull Creation Challenge. Â The team received a custom Arduino board from Red Bull last Wednesday called a Bullduino. Â The current challenge is to build anything using this Bullduino board. Â 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. Â 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. Â In the final round, the teams will be provided with a theme. Â Each team will have 72 hours to build something around that common theme. Â The entire 72 hour event will be streamed live on the Internet. Â 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. Â 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 detailedÂ explanationsÂ so stay tuned!
