This Week's THROWBACK THURSDAY

Earlier this year we took our DreamBoard concept from a fun way to show off what our member's dream development kit would look like to a good ole' fashioned head to head competition! DreamBoardVS  pitted 16 member-created DreamBoards against each other. Members were asked to vote for their favorite each week.


When the competition went down to the final four, we were able to piece together a few of the kits already in existence to meet the functionality of those finalists' Dreamboards.

 


In this week's THROWBACK THURSDAY Giveaway we will be giving away four STM32F4DISCOVERYSTM32F4DISCOVERY Board in honor of one of the finalists:  shabaz's Stripboard++ .

How Do I Win?

Rather than have you give us an idea of what you plan on building with the board, we want you to show off your "DreamBoard". It's pretty easy and rather fun. Visit the DreamBoard space, create a new board and post the link for the board in the comments section below. We'll announce the and send out the prize on November 30th to accommodate the Thanksgiving holiday.   Upon receiving the kit, post a blog on the element14 Community with the project you completed using what we sent out to you.


See full terms and conditions for more details.


We'll be taking break on the #TBT giveaway next week to accommodate the Holiday season! Check back for more Throwback Thursday Giveaways in 2016!

Who Wins?

 

Help us answer an age-old sci- fi question:

 

Earlier this month the element14 Community reached its 200.000th member milestone. As a thank you to our members, we decided to have some fun and engage SYN/HAK, an Akron,Ohio-based Hackerspace to build models of the siOrg³ starship and the Lifeless Spherical Space Station. For years the science fiction community has debated what would happen if these two feats of engineering collided in the cosmos.Now it's time to take the spirited conversations about this topic we've seen in online forums, offline conventions and social media outlets to our community of over 200,000 engineers, makers and hobbyists. We hope you settle this intergalactic dispute once and for all!

 

Check out the video "Who Wins?", created by SYN/HAK which puts this spirited discussion into context using the element14 Community as a bridge between both universes. It starts innocently as two engineers turn to the Community to get answers to questions around Deep Space Engineering, but soon escalates into a virtual smack-off about the merits of each respective ship. The two engineers are forced to back up said smack as they inexplicably find themselves in the same sector of the galaxy.

 

 

Make sure to view the video here. Log in or Register (top right corner of screen)  to vote and comment on the "Who Wins" video below by voting here.

 

 

 

The group of Hackers has also posted a blog about the project, which uses the Raspberry Pi   and Arduino boards here.
