Do you think there is going to be a Halloween contest this year? I hope so b/c I'm working on something Halloweeny. Plus it seems like during the Halloween cotest someone always complains/whines about their project not being a finalist or someone pirating their idea, which can be entertaining.
I had some other contest ideas:
Most Likely to be Sold in an Infomercial. (Stuff that is in the tradition of Ron Popiel)
Practicallity Contest. (Stuff that may not be sexy, but is very useful)
Dark Ages Contest. (The projects couldn't contain LEDs or electronics.)
Vacuum Contest (Ibles for the vacuum cleaner or that use a vacuum. You'd want them to suck. :)
Just a couple of thoughts.
