The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is celebrating the art of do-it-yourself with an online contest. You can submit a description, pictures, and videos of your robot (or other engineering project) via the contest Website.
The contest Website is also a great place to go for a little inspiration, with dozens of robots are already posted. You’ll find robot arms, line followers, walkers, quadcopters and even minesweepers. Readers can vote for their favorite online. The winner gets bragging rights and $500. There’s still plenty of time to complete a project before it closes on March 6, 2015.
