Hey guys,

Just wanted to update everyone as to what is going on with finalist selection and announcing winners.

You guys have been so patient in this process, and we are so proud of every project the Instructables.com community has shared using their Intel IoT Edison development kit.

The Intel Team is still reviewing projects and code, and will hopefully have their ultimate finalist selection done soon. It has been so hard choosing projects to be considered for the awards as they are all so wonderful!

Again, thanks for your patience, and feel free to reach out to intel@instructables.com if you have additional questions.

Hey guys!

I am so excited to finally set launch dates for the Intel IoT Contest!!! We have a few more packages waiting to be received by Instructables Authors, but then we are good to go. To have your project considered for some of the AMAZING PRIZES just publish your Instructable that includes an Intel Edison between 8/31 and 10/26 and add it to the Intel IoT Invitational Contest Page.

With all of our logistics and shipping pretty much wrapped, we are finally getting to review all the project ideas from people who already have Edisons and Galileos submit - you will soon get an email from myself, or Penolopy Bulnick (who is coming back to Instructables to help with future giveaways like this!), approving your idea.

I have to say, I am so proud to be apart of such a wonderful community that has been understanding of our delays, and collaborative in helping one another troubleshoot their projects. I can't wait to see what everyone is going to make :)



Beaming!
-Audrey

Here at Instructables, we’re so excited to have a continued partnership with the Intel® IoT Developer Program to celebrate the bright ideas that the Instructables.com community has come up with for the Intel® Edison platform. We’ve been sharing some of the best IoT stories on our site, and are astounded by the growth and creativity blossoming from the Intel Edison Ecosystem.



To further encourage great IoT projects being shared to Instructables, we are offering even more Intel® Edison Boards and Intel® IoT Developer Kits to you! We believe in your awesome creative potential, and your devotion to share what you make and learn with other makers and tinkerers. Furthermore, we are so excited to announce the Intel® IoT Invitational!  Intel IoT Projects published from June 8 - August 7, 2015 will be considered to win a Canon 7D mk ii, a Sony Action Cam, an Oscillisoscope, a Sparkfun Giftcard, a Shapeways Giftcard, and More!!

WE ARE SEEDING THE INSTRUCTABLES COMMUNITY 300 INTEL® EDISON BOARDS and SPECIALTY INTEL® IoT DEVELOPMENT KITS. 

We want to hear what you want to make with the Intel Edison Board. If we like your idea, we will send you a kit! Keep in mind, the kits we are creating during this Invitational differ from the commercially available Grove Starter Kits. It will likely take additional components and ingenuity to make great IoT projects for the Intel IoT Invitational.

These are the kits and bundles we are making:

Home Automation Kit
This kit is designed with home automation and safety in mind. There are 9 sensors in the kit that can detect things like moisture, temperature, flames and gases. There’s also a speaker to sound alerts and a relay to turn something on or off. This kit could easily be extended with additional sensors for the ultimate home automation or safety sensor array.

Included in this kit:
Grove Air quality sensor
Grove Encoder
Grove Flame Sensor
Grove Gas Sensor(MQ2)
Grove Infrared Temperature Sensor
Grove Moisture Sensor
Grove SPDT Relay(30A)
Grove Speaker

 
Environmental & Agriculture
This kit is designed with agriculture in mind.  The 7 sensors in this kit can help you determine light, UV and dust in the environment and based on that information one could rinse a plant off with the water pump and/or water the plant and not waste any water because a flow sensor is included. There is an LED bar for visual output and a dry reed relay to turn things on and off.

Included in this Kit:
6V Mini Water Pump
G14 Water Flow Sensor
Grove Digital Light Sensor
Grove Dry-Reed Relay
Grove Dust Sensor
Grove Gas Sensor(MQ5)
Grove LED Bar
Grove Moisture Sensor
Grove UV Sensor
Grove Water Sensor



Transportation and Safety
This kit is designed with vehicle safety in mind. These 6 sensors can help you keep from getting lost, tell you if you have pulled forward far enough in the garage and even keep your garage from accidentally closing on you. In addition there is an alcohol sensor to determine if you have had too much fun.

Included in this Kit:
Grove Alcohol Sensor
Grove GPS
Grove I2C Touch Sensor
Grove Infrared Reflective Sensor
Grove IR Distance Interrupter
Grove PIR Motion Sensor



Robotics
Create the next robot overlord or at the very least a cool vehicle. This kit has 2 motor drivers and 4 planet geared motors—you supply a chassis.  There are also a few items to determine distance and track a line.  This kit will likely require the most additional items from the maker, but it also provides some useful pieces to get started exploring robotics. Have other ideas—maybe a quad-copter we are eager to see what you create!

Included in this Kit:
Grove 3-Axis Digital Compass
Grove Hall Sensor
Grove I2C Motor Driver
Grove IR Distance Interrupter
Grove Line Finder
Grove MOSFET
Grove Nunchuck
Grove Single Axis Analog Gyro
Grove Thumb Joystick
Grove Voltage Divider
Planet Geared Motor F280



By no means are you limited to just using the parts in these kits, they are just meant to help you get started. Add more sensors, components, and hardware to make the IoT machines of your dreams!

This product offering is limited to 300 people who state their case as to why we should send them a board and development kit.

Hi,

When will the winners be out?

I'm really excited for the results!

(will they be out before new year or after?

As posted by Penolopy Bulnick in 'MediaTek LinkIt One Giveaway' forum, Instructables employees are on vacation and won't be back until January 4th. So, I assume that the winners will be announced after January 4th only

Hi, it's been 12 days since the last update, any chance we will have any results soon? Has the contest been cancelled?

audreyobscura (author)  R-I-H-A-M1 year ago

The contest is not cancelled, apologies. We are still waiting for finalist approvals from the Intel Team. Hopefully we will have them soon.

Your patience is most appreciated.

hmm...there isn't much happening here, is the competition cancelled or something?

Well, yesterday was Thanksgiving in the U.S., and since Intel is an US-based company, it might take some time. Oh, and it's a sponsered contest, so it might take some more time.

That's what they say. :)

I heard that today is the deadline for the judging, is that true?

If so, can you tell me when you will confirm the winners as I am a bit excited and hyped!

This is what it says in the contest rules:

"Winner Selection. There will be 18 total winner(s) for the Contest. The winner(s) will be selected on November 23, 2015., and Sponsor will announce the winner(s) on November 24, 2015. Each winner will be awarded only the prize(s) for which that winner was selected, as described below."

Though since it is a sponsored contest it might take longer

Finalists were announced yesterday
