2009 DiabetesMine Design Challenge Answered

Design contests are great and all... but design contests for a good cause are even better! Let me introduce the 2009 DiabetesMine Design Challenge, a contest for improving the life of people with diabetes through innovation.

It appears that there is even a special judging category for those of you budding inventors under 18.

If the prospect of doing something to greatly benefit others isn't a large enough reward in itself, keep in mind that there will be a number of other awesome prizes. Foremost, you can win thousands of dollars in cash for the development of your great idea. You can also win the chance for a consulting session with the world-renowned design firm IDEO and admission to the Health 2.0 conference.

So, go put your thinking caps on and start regulating some glucose.

Full contest details can be seen here.

Macgyver successfully used his belt buckle, a paper clip, and a miniature bottle of milk to create a diabetes cure!
