It's all fun and games until someone wins an epic prize.
Exciting news for people with ideas: SparkFun and the creators of the Blynk app have partnered with our friends at Hackster to sponsor the "IoT For Everyone" contest. The contest is based around the SparkFun ESP8266 Blynk Board – a compact, powerful platform, specially designed to work with the ‘widgets’ in the Blynk mobile app to create your next IoT project.
Got a great idea for a project using the new SparkFun Blynk Board and the Blynk app? Entering the contest is easy! Send your idea to Hackster by May 8, and you'll be in the running to be one of 50 semifinalists who will receive supplies to build your project. If you submit your finished project, you could win some excellent prizes, including a trip to the annual, robotic mayhem-guaranteed Autonomous Vehicle Competition in September! We've seen a ton of great project ideas rolling in already; don't miss your chance to be one of the winners!
