|The Holiday Special: Merry Boxes & LEDs|
|Project14 | Holiday Special: Spread Mirth and Merry Through Music and LED Displays!|
This holiday season, Project14 will be holding our second annual holiday special project competition. We asked you what you wanted this to be in Project14 | Holiday Special Poll: What Projects are You Interested in Doing? and it was a two way tie between Merry Boxes & LED Displays and Holiday for a Cause. You're free to pursue any of the ideas discussed and enter your project into the contest. The official theme is Merry Boxes & LEDs . We're asking the community members to spread mirth and merry through electronics projects that bring joy to the heart through music or really cool LED displays!
In addition to an Oscilloscope grand prize for the project that brings the most joy to the heart to go along with a Home Lab tool kit Gift to Give. Three first place winners will receive a maker tool kit bundle along with a $100 shopping cart as well as a $100 shopping cart to give to another member for their projects. All Gift to Gives can be given to any member that submitted a project in any Project14 contest happening around the holiday special including: Merry Boxes & LEDs, Wearable Tech, Back to Analog , or the upcoming A Question of Scale competition. On Valentine's Day, we'll show the world how much heart the community has with a Gifts to Give Winners Announcement! We know that not all of you celebrate Christmas, so we want to make sure everyone is included with the holiday special. If there is a holiday project other than a Christmas Project that you want to celebrate feel free to enter that into the holiday contest. For instance, it could be a Hanukkah project, a Winter Solstice project, a Kwanzaa project, or a Festivus for the rest of us project!

The Rohde & Schwartz RTB2004 features four channels, universal knobs, a touch screen, fast boot up, rtos - a real-time operating system that's open source, lots of memory to allow you to capture a "wider" event such as an entire frame of a video signal, triggers on video where it finds, not just a low pulse because the video is an analog signal, but it looks for the specific stair-stepping that indicates that it’s the edge of an NTSC line and it can sync to it.
