    Are you fulfilling the promise of tomorrow's technology today? Are you etching circuit-boards in your lab, or soldering in a toaster oven in your garage? Are you hosting a MUD on your helmet, or making malicious USB hardware? Did you make something to help you in your every day life, a unique wearable, or something really nefarious?

    We want to see the awesome things you've been building over the last year.

    The HomebrewHardware competition is a place to showcase your skill, techniques, and project.

    Rules:

    1. Bring your hardware, and proof of how you made it (video, pictures, etc.)
    2. Each entry will be given 5 minutes to discuss what they built, how they built it, and show a practical demonstration.
    3. A panel of judges will rank entries based on a number of categories including: innovativeness, construction techniques, utility, and aesthetics.
    4. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
    5. Entries can submit early (watch our twitter) but must be present to talk through their hardware on stage.
    6. Entries can be teams or individuals.
    7. Entries can leverage commercial parts and gear, but should strive to meet the spirit of home-brew!
    8. No badges, please. We <3 badge life, but there are already some awesome contests for them.
