Thanks to everyone for participating in the promotion! We had quite a collection of projects come in :)

Just to let people know, Instructables employees will be on vacation starting tomorrow (or the next day, depending on what their plans are) and won't be back until January 4th. If you email starting now until then, you won't get a reply until the 4th.

Happy holidays everyone!

Just to clarify, in case you were worried, those of us watching the Mediatek email will be gone over the winter holiday and won't be able to reply to messages, but the site will still be up and running! You can still direct messages to if you are having trouble with the site!

Tata for now :)

Unfortunately due to my engineering semester exams I couldn't submit projects made using Linkit ONE on time. :(
I missed the gift cards..
Anyway Now that I have vacations I'm going to put up all the LinkIt One projects on my instructables profile.
Better late than never!

I'm sorry you were unable to make the deadline, but I look forward to seeing what you create with the MediaTek LinkIt ONE board :)

Hi Penolopy!
I have already made an IoT based plant monitoring system using LinkIt ONE
Have to write an instructable for that.
Meanwhile here's a short demonstration of my project
