NAR Competition

The "Not A Rectangle", otherwise known as "Untangle" or simply "NAR" is easily the best single shot in terms of range due to the power transfer at the front. Because this is the only needed feature of the gun, it also makes the NAR very customisable and therefore you can change your NAR to the extreme. With enough work, you could make the gun look however you like. It's because of this that I had the idea of making this competition. Your task is to create the best looking and most ergonomic NAR. Absolutely anyone can enter, there's no limit on entries, however all entries must comply to these rules: 1) It must use the NAR mechanism, and you must prove it in picture form. 2) It must be your own design. Any NAR's with Zak's handle on them will be disqualified, unless posted by Zak himself of course. For this competition I will need 2 judges to help me decide, so if you don't want to compete please consider this post instead. Judges: The Jamalam knex gun builder freak Lowney The prize for the winner will be a surprise and will be decided privately between the judges and I. We will be accepting entries up to and including, but no later than 15th September. The winner will be announced on the 20th. You have 20 days, starting from 25th Aug. Oh wait, that's now. Well, get building! Here is a link to the instructions for the NAR, thanks to silentassassin21 for posting them: http://knexinnovation.net/showthread.php?852-The-untangle

Games4Girls Competition

This is an awesome competition for any girls interested in computer games. The computer science department at the University of Illinois has a annual contest called Games4Girls (G4G). Teams of up to 5 college women collaborate to build a computer games designed for girls in middle school and high school.  Cash prizes are offered along with donations to your schools department. The best part  is you don't need to have any programming experience.  Teams are required to use the Game Maker development platform to put their games together.  Game Maker has an easy to learn drag and drop interface that has a built in programming language for customization. I actually formed a team at my school, Union College.  We had registered and everything, but we started collaborating on the project in January near the registration deadline and we found we didn't have enough time to build a full game by the deadline (April 5th).  If this sounds like a fun event, contact a professor at your school this summer or the beginning of the academic year and form a team ASAP.  Registration Deadline for Competition - 1/22/2010 Game Submission - 4/5/2010 website: http://cs.illinois.edu/outreach/games4girls

Lego FIRST competition

Well, today I went along with Caitlin's school robotics club to see them participate in qualifying rounds in order to advance to the New York City city-wide champs. Woot, they made it enough in the rankings to advance and fun was had by all. It was my first time at one of these things and it was pretty well organized considering the number of teams shuttling back and forth between rooms to do the robotics challenges/missions and presentations to judges. Kids use Lego Mindstorm NXT robot kits and build/program them to accomplish a list of tasks to be performed in the "pit". Of course, everything can go wrong from your batteries not being charged, pieces falling apart, programs not working, forgetting the laptop charger, and worrying about the school bus making it home before the snow storm. Fourth graders did research projects and presentations on how robotics impacted environmental issues. Fourth and fifth grader teams did the robot challenges and presented their robots to the judges. The FIRST program is really to have fun while using technology, learn something, and to develop teamwork and good sportsmanship. One of our teachers even wrote up a school cheer and song just for Robotics. The second pic is of another school who happened to have a live team mascot(where else can you wear a propeller beanie and be proud?). The amount of geek-strogen present was incredible. This happened to be Tetranitrate's stomping grounds but I didn't find any evidence of charred walls. I might just have to make Robohoodies for all the kids when they compete again in March. Anyone else out there doing Lego FIRST robotic league?

FIRST Robotics Competition

Has anyone heard of the FIRST Robotics Competition? It was started by Dean Kamen. Instead of me repeating what their philosophy is, check out their website: FIRSTI'm on the first team from Nebraska, and this was our rookie year. We just finished up our regional competition in Kansas City, MO, and it was a blast. It is one of the only programs that I have found that encourages involvement in science and technology. The build process is almost similar to an engineering internship.If you happen to be in high school (or not yet there) or you are a professional engineer, electrician, programmer, or hobbyist (basically anyone who uses Instructables!), I strongly encourage you to get involved. Find a team in your area and contact them. There are over 2000 teams in the country, so there may be one near you.If you are already involved, let me know! I am interested in hearing what people have to say.

A new Knex competition (And no, this is not a thread to advertise a TGKT spin-off!)

I am just going to say before I start that this is not a flame thread, and I just want to see how everyone feels about this. I do not want any immaturity or namecalling here. Any comments, from anyone, that include namecalling will be flagged.Now, a while ago Radioactive started a competition for those who were not included in the 'Grand Knex Snob Expert Contest' (Is that right, Radio?) What I am suggesting is that we run a smaller competition for those that have not earned the title of Knexpert (a term which I feel is used too loosely these days). It can run after the TGKT, and can be run by a party that would not wish to participate. People who were in the TGKT would not be able to enter, to give the less experienced a chance.

Robot fliers in commando competition

People and micro-aircraft race to rescue 'hostages'Robots inspired by moths, locusts, flies and swifts will take to the sky this week in an international competition for micro aerial vehicles in Agra, India. Teams will vie for the title -- as well as up to US$600,000 in funding -- for their tiny flying machines.The mission calls for squads of aerial and ground robots to reconnoitre for human 'commandos' tasked with reaching 'hostages' in a building one kilometre from the launch point. The robots will need to detect and disarm simulated chemical mines in an urban environment, and guide the commandos past guard teams to the hostages -- all within 40 minutes.The robots will use a mixture of wireless communication with a ground-control team, and autonomous navigation."It's a tough competition," says entrant Hemendra Arya, an engineer at the India Institute of Technology in Mumbai. "It really gives a challenge for the designer."Micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) are hard to detect, maneuverable, portable, and more energy-efficient than larger aircraft. The United States is currently using first-generation MAVs the size of a rucksack to warn convoys about roadside bombs in Iraq.Larger unmanned aerial vehicles such as the Predator have been used for years to spot and attack enemies, but they need an airfield. The effort to build smaller craft got a boost when the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) began sponsoring competitions in late 1996. The US Department of Defense is co-sponsoring the Indian competition. more here

Greener Gadgets Design Competition entries

Core77, in conjunction with GreenerGadgets, recently held an open design competition. (See also fungus amungus' post, Design a Green Gadget and Win Some Cash).Well, the results are in, and there are some really clever and/or far-out ideas among the entries. I figured I would cross post some of my personal favorites. Not all of these are great design, good ideas, or even work - some are just purty. Brenn10 already posted the 2nd prize winner, the Gravia gravity lamp, which has since been retracted by the designer due to it's physical impossibility :-).In order, we get:1) Grand prize winner: The EnerJar - an Instructables or Make project if I ever saw one! Now also has its own website with instructions on how to make your own: http://www.enerjar.net/.2) Arc - a very minimalistic wood surface armband/watch. Kinda like J_Hodgie's Solid Wood Digital Clock 'ible.3) Plug-in Watch - such a simple idea that if it isn't on sale yet in Hong Kong, I'm sure it will be by next week...4) Aperture - a shower head that tells you how much water you're using (powered by the flow of water, naturally)5) Powered by Play! - motion powered and operated Wee/iPhone for 5 year olds. Excellent idea, provided they can make it sturdy enough...6) Digital Tattoo Interface - definitely one of the more "out there" submissions...

I'm one of the 50 finalists for the Green Science Instructable competition ( yay me - a pleasant surprise to get this far! ) , there are a total of 18 prizes, what are the odds of me winning a prize? If there was just one prize even I could work out that I'd have a one in 50 chance, but I don't know how to figure the complexity of multiple prizes. I'd appreciate an answer, please show your workings :-) Cheers, Bosherston
