Today marks the start of the 2015 Hackaday Prize, where teams of hackers and engineers come together in friendly competition and try to change the world for the better. If you believe your design can make it to the top, then put it to the test at this year’s Hackaday Prize!
“The devices that inform our daily lives were science fiction in decades past. The barriers that once required giant companies to produce such marvels are starting to crumble. Now, one person with one idea can revolutionize the way we live our lives. Be that person. You Build the Future. You claim The Hackaday Prize.” – Sophi Kravitz, Program Manager

If helping create a better world isn’t incentive enough, however, the first prize winner of this year’s Hackaday Prize will be given a choice: either go to space or be awarded $196,883 (to understand the significance behind that number: Griess algebra)! And before you knock off the idea that anyone would consider the money over a trip to space, keep in mind that nearly $200,000 could very well be what creates a successful company of the future. Either way, to be given that choice, contestants will be put to the ultimate test – as will their ideas. Do they have what it takes? Do you? Find out by joining the competition here!
