days left



RETHINK ELECTRONICS! Don't hide your wires in a box! Wear it on your sleeve, create a circuit on paper, make it three-dimensional, make it tiny, make it clever. The Pocket Sized Electronics contest isn't just about small, it's about different. We're looking for projects that show off their guts, projects that surprise us, and projects that come in a form that no one expects.

Make it simple or make it complicated, but make it cool and compelling! Bonus points will be given for projects that make us go "WHOA!" There will be a special category called Paper Electronics for projects that take electronics off of the circuit board and onto other materials like paper, cardboard and wood!

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, India, New Zealand, and Denmark. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), May 13, 2013. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, June 10, 2013.
