Epilog Challenge: coming soon!

Psst - want to win a laser cutter?

UPDATE: The Epilog Challenge has begun! Click here for details.


We know you do, so we've teamed up with the fantastic people at Epilog Laser to bring you the Epilog Challenge: to make an awesome project with a green twist!

The most incredible project will win an Epilog laser, and runners-up will get the next-best thing: use of a laser cutter, from our friends at Ponoko! Laser cutters are absolutely incredible tools - the sky (or your imagination) is the limit to what you can make.

Now a peek at some details from the contest page:
What's a green twist? In honor of environmentally-friendly design and our Green Theme for 2009, we want to see at least some clearly-described green component in the design, no matter how small. Simply explain some way your design is energy-efficient, reuses materials, or is helpful to the environment in some way. It doesn't have to be the primary theme for your project - we just want to encourage green thinking at all stages of a project, no matter how small. Whether you've picked LEDs over incandescent lights, made maximally efficient use of scarce resources, or dumpster-dived for materials, we want to hear about the little steps that contribute to permanent changes in behavior.

So, inspired yet? Start thinking and building now, since the contest launches next week!

Yes! Now I will build my laser cutter project I've been planning on! ...wait a sec, that kind of ruins the point, doesn't it? Alright, I'll make my helicopter in a briefcase idea!
Helicopter in a briefcase- tell me more!!!
Well, I was just trying to think of the coolest thing I could. And I was thinking jetpack, but it could be difficult landing with one of those, so I decided I'd go with helicopter. I have no idea how that could be done, but if I come up with anything, I'll let you know.
Well I'm working on getting my helicopter pilot's license so if you need a test pilot.....

Hello! Will it be possible to win if we are from Quebec or there will be an "except people from Quebec" like the Workshop of the future?
Can we enter previously published instructables (say, from a month or so ago)?
If you do that, it is normally expected that you update the project somehow and republish it.

To clarify: it's normally expected that you update/improve the idea and publish a new project that refers to the original one.
