Attention, Hobbyists

1 min read

Do you have a terrific electronics project you’ve built at home? If so, we want to hear from you.

IEEE Spectrum and Make magazines are joining forces to call attention to the coolest and cleverest do-it-yourself projects. If you’ve conceived and built something that you’d like to share with the combined readerships of Spectrum and Make—more than a million people—let us know about it.

To enter, send a brief description of your project and include an estimate of how much it cost. Throw in a photo, a parts list, and a schematic. Mail them to: Spectrum/MakeDIY Contest, 3 Park Ave., 17th Floor, New York, NY 10016-5997, U.S.A. The entry deadline is 15 March 2007.

If you win, you’ll receive full coverage of your project in the print and/or online editions of both Spectrum and Make , as well as airfare and accommodations to attend the next ”Maker Faire.” That’s Make magazine’s annual jamboree for do-it-yourselfers, 19 to 20 May 2007 at the San Mateo, Calif., Fairgrounds, where you will describe and demonstrate your project.
