Let's go crazy with purple! It's the color of bravery, royalty, and the most powerful visible wavelength of electromagnetic energy. Its rarity in nature conjures the supernatural. And it's the color most closely linked to the supernaturally talented and newly late Prince Rogers Nelson, who touched and inspired us with his electrifying originality. What does purple inspire in you? We want to see your boldly original purple projects. As with Prince, anything goes as long as purple reigns supreme.

The winner of this challenge will walk away with an Outdoor Tech Turtle Shell 2.0 Wireless Speaker, and all 25 runners up will receive Instructables prize packs that include a robot t-shirt.
