Coming soon: Flashlight speed contest! Answered

On Monday we'll be starting a flashlight speed contest! The only rule is that a flashlight must be involved. 

More details to come!

So is it a "Modify this to make it into a flashlight" type of contest or more of a "Here is this cool thing you can do with a flashlight" type of contest? Either way, sounds fun!

edit: "a flashlight must be involved" It can be a flashlight, or have once been a flashlight, or have just become a flashlight. That's my interpretation.

Yeah, you're right; now that I think about it more, either is just as possible as the other.

Actually, it's both. If you make something into a flashlight, that would involve a flashlight (as the results) and you can also do something with a flashlight.

I think it is Take a flashlight and do whatever you want with it. Like the USB contest.

So (just to belabor the point a bit further), can the project be one that absolutely requires the use of a flashlight as a tool, but (other than draining the batteries) does not affect the flashlight in any particular way?
For example, maybe something like "Deep Sea Spelunking"?

(Note: Anyone breathlessly awaiting my "Deep Sea Spelunking" Instructable should inhale immediately.)

would anything that produces light as a primary function be the equivalent of a flashlight in this case? like a book light or an array of leds
