We live a lot of our life on the go so what can you make that can easily be slid into your pocket and carried around? Show us something cool and portable and win a t-shirt!

For this we are starting the Pocket-Sized Speed Contest!

The only restriction here is that the item you make must be able to fit into a pocket. This doesn't include those massive pockets on cargo pants or big jackets, either. We're talking about something that can slide into a regular pants pocket. As a rule of thumb, if you have to describe what type of clothing it's for, then it's probably too big.

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Mar 13, 2008 and Mar 30, 2008 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Pocket-Sized. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.


When the winners are decided they will be notified and announced here on the contest page.
