It's time for another project contest! In addition to giving out awards and prizes for the best Instructables entered during September, we're also trying out a challenge: document a project that utilizes magnets. Magnet Challenge
Document a project that uses magnets. Magnets are used in lots of places, so thinking up a project should be easy. Here are some example uses of magnets to get you started (post more in the comments!): motors, earrings
, transformers, Rubik’s cubes
, refrigerator magnets and lights
, knife racks, voice coils
and speakers, throwies
, reed switches, traffic light triggers
, magnetically levitating trains, art
, and bicycle speedometers.
The best five Instructables documenting projects with magnets will win ATC 1000 Helmets cams
. We’ve been experimenting with helmet cams
and think they can help make documentation easier and more fun. To enter, publish your project anytime during September and add it to the Magnet Challenge group
. September Project ContestUpdate!Wild Planet Toys
gave us some Digital Spy Cameras
that we'll also give away as part of the September Project Contest. The top 5 projects will win SpyCams and the next 10 projects will win the card readers.
The 10 best Instructables published during the month of September will win a [http://www.sandisk.com/Products/Item(1220)-SDDR-103-SanDisk_MobileMate_SD_Plus5in1_Reader.aspx SanDisk MobileMate SD Plus 5-in-1 Reader] plus a rare earth magnet (a 1/4'' x 1/4'' x1/2'' NdFeB
from Amazing Magnets
) and some epoxy to make a magnetic memory reader. We always seem to be losing our memory card adapters; I figured if they were magnetically attached to the fridge they might stick around longer.
We’ll also give 25 Honorable Mentions with Instructables patches to sew onto your jacket or bag. Check out the picture of the patch.Results!
