What can you do with a microcontroller? Well, maybe we should ask what can't you do with a microcontroller? Microcontrollers are the key cog to most of the projects we do. Which is why we are announcing a new contest: The Instructables and SparkFun Microcontroller Contest!
We've teamed up with Instructables, home of thousands of awesome projects, to bring you this awesome contest that hinges on one thing and one thing alone - your creativity. The idea is simple: Create a new Instructable that involves a microcontroller (any microcontroller) and enter it into the contest. If your instructable is a winner, you'll have a shot to win prizes like $250 to SparkFun, a laser-etched Leatherman, and an Instructables "prize pack." For all the details and rules of the contest, go to the Microcontroller Contest homepage. The contest ends February 13th, so get programming!
