Connectivity’ Launch Contest

We have also launched our ‘connectivity’ contest with a huge $5000 prize pot up for grabs for 13 lucky winners, along with 50 Electromaker gift packs which will be awarded to the entries we feel deserve a reward.

Maybe your project could connect to your phone; perhaps it could talk to your laptop or even your doorbell. Whatever it does, as long as it uses some sort of wireless technology we want to see it.
