To enter the contest you must make a physical object for the prank!
After seeing some entries I have been wondering. Are some of these entries allright with the contest rules?
I want to start with saying that I don't want to bash on the ibles I'm going to use as examples. For me they have the right to win just as much as the next person.
But the rule of the contest clearly states: The prank can be simple or complex, involve yarn or a supercomputer, but it must involve some physical object that you make for the prank
And the way I see it some of these entries don't live up to that.
Like for example the speed trap prank www.instructables.com/id/Speed-trap-prank/ . It's a great prank but it doesn't involve making anything. He uses a hairdryer and a vest and a car. In my opinion If he would have made a fake speed gun it would count. Ofcourse I can see why using a hairdryer would be easier but that's not really the point.
Another example is "Make anyone smell like chicken prank!" www.instructables.com/id/Make-Anyone-Smell-Like-Chicken-Prank/ . All he does is stick a Chicken Bullion Cube in a showerhead. So that isn't really making a physical object is it?
Other ibles do it according to the rules like the funny www.instructables.com/id/T-Bar-for-the-Car/ or www.instructables.com/id/Simple-Mac-prank-using-Arduino/ . In both these instructables you are making some physical object.
So i just want to get some clearity on what is in line with the rules of the contest and what is not.
Again I don't have anything against the instructables I used as an example nor against the authors who made them. It's just that in my point of view they don't follow the rule. Unless ofcourse I missed something...
