Does it really come with DMX lighting connectors and a DMX mp3?

Either way, we missed out last year and I think we definitely want to do this :D.

Since you brought it up, do you want to submit the application? http://creation.redbullusa.com/register/

Don't wait. We're in. Go, go, go. Do not use a P.O. Box.

Is it the same board we had last year? Their description says it has some extra sensors on it:

TURBULL ENCABULATOR

The TurBULL Encabulator is our very own super simple, but extremely complicated, multi-function circuit board designed to give Makers a powerful tool in the creation of controllable LED lighting art and inventions. The Arduino-controllable board features a tri-axis accelerometer, temperature control sensor, as well as a 2nd generation reciprocating dingle arm (no, not really) in a Bulls and Sun shaped circuit board.

IIRC, we got in late because PO Box fail so they sent us just a Bullduino. The earlier you get in, the better the gear they send you AFAIK.

I missed this earlier question...

I'd prefer that someone at the lab more often did the application and had it sent to their home to avoid the PO box mishap from last year.

I just got a confirmation that a board is coming my way (might have been fast because I submitted a RBC qualifier last year).

- There is no specific build direction for the qualifier other than to create something really wonderful using interactive lighting. Just be as creative as possible, have lots of fun, and make something you're proud of.

- Extra points are given for creatively displaying your creation in a public space for people to enjoy, or somehow sharing it with the outside world.

I have some commercial DMX lighting modules (switch AC power) and a bunch of lights...
