Coming soon: USB Contest

Within the next couple weeks we will be starting a USB Contest!

The rules are that the entry needs to involve USB in some way. It can be powered via USB, transfer data via USB, or even provide power by USB. As long as there is some USB connection being used, it can be entered.

So keep that in mind and start noodling some ideas. Just be sure not to post until the contest starts, OK?

More details to come.

Damn, I got a few ideas and I got to go back to college in a few days... :(
 Does it have to be an electronic thing or can it just be a physical modification of an existing device?

If it's a mod that adds USB in some way, it can be entered.

What if the project involves just the USB connectors and doesnt connect to a actual PC or use a USB interface? Does that still count?

Like a USB bracelet where the USB male/female connection is the clasp? It can be entered, but I'm betting that something that uses the USB interface will have better odds of winning.
I'm pretty sure it will.

BTW, Thanks for representin' and putting nerd in your username! NERD PRIDE!!
Would something like this:
count? In other words can it be rewritten as an instructable and then count for the contest?

Absolutely. It has to be a new Instructable, but it can be previously published elsewhere as long as you are the original author.
