Prize suggestions and feedback needed! What would YOU like to win?

Hi everyone!

Here at HQ we're always planning contests, but sometimes we run out of prize ideas. :D

I would love to hear any and all suggestions for products you guys would like to win!

I'd also love to hear feedback about prizes we've offered this year - what did you like? What didn't you like? Do you prefer getting a shiny new electronic toy or a prize pack more suited to the theme of the contest?

Have a suggestion for a contest theme? Check out this topic!

Gift cards for Ponoko or other laser cutting services.

Thinking of the branded prizes, I happen to have quite a few shirts - how about having another go at mugs (this time, preferably, ones that don't explode when exposed to hot water)?

They exploded?

I've won two shirts (I think), but I can't wear them since cotton clothes give me a rash... Simple things like hats, mugs (ones that don't explode!), are the best. They sent out an email to vote which ones are your favorites several months ago, but I guess that the stainless steel mug won out of the ones that were suggested.

There are many members that have dozens of shirts, but if they won something different almost each time...

Well, explode might be a bit harsh, but pouring in hot water was not advisable - they'd go ping and split in two.

Hats sound good. I hadn't seen the stainless mug, but that also sounds good.

Simple things! Like a Instructables flash-drive, or an Instructables mouse-pad...

Thank you for giving me the perfect prize!

Oscilloscope, frequency generator, logic analyzer, or 3D printer, assembled or in kits would be good for the Build My Lab Contest.

DIY kits are fun to build and use.

A good amount of people play instruments, so you could offer a some instruments.

Also, while I do like the simple-but-practical prizes, like cameras, Ipads, and 3d printers, I'd also like to see some newer technology. For example, I had no Idea what the PocketLab was until I saw it in the maker olympics, but now I feel like I desperately need it. When I look at a contest, and I scroll down to where the prizes are listed, I want to be surprised by what I see.

Recently, there has been a lot of weird prizes for the contests -- I mean prizes for fancy things you don't need, you never heard of, and don't even know what is. I'm still trying to win a DSLR Camera, Vitamix, and iPad. Can we please have more of these basic and perhaps "boring" prizes?
