New Contest This Week Answered

On Wednesday, a new contest will be starting up. It's an LED contest and the only rule is that the Instructable involves LEDs. Awesome prizes with LEDs in them to be announced later. So start thinking of cool projects right now since we love to see LED projects and this one is open to international entries.

Oh...you...you did NOT just camoize one of your projects. I'd say I love you, but that would be weird. LOL! Sweet! Also, I think it's called OD green, or Olive Drab. -PKT

From the pic, it looks like an NES console inspired gun. That would be retro-punk. It's daylight savings time...spring forward, man...

It's based on the famous m414a pulse rifle from the film Aliens, so its deffo retro sci fi.

In the past, the rule has generally been that you can submit as many entries as you want.

The contest says "To enter, the Instructable must involve LEDs". Does that include LED 7 segment displays and LED matrices or are we talking just the single 2-lead indicator jobbies?

I have the plans, I have the parts. Time will definitely be an issue - the half term break is coming, and we're spending it in Cornwall. I just hope the deadlines are in my favour.
