Enter the Pocket-SIzed Contest with a project of any kind that fits in a reasonably sized pocket. If you feel like you have to defend the size/pocket it fits in, it's probably too big. 

It's time to think outside the box (or inside the pocket as it were) and see what small-scale projects emerge. Build the best pocket-sized creation and you could win a pocket-sized iPhone XR.

The Pocket Sized Contest is closed.
