2015 Innovation Contest: Boca Bearings
« on: July 20, 2015, 08:13:59 AM »
Hello,

We at Boca Bearings would like to invite you to participate in our annual Innovation Contest. There is no cost to enter and just for submitting your project video we will send you a digital caliper and work mat for free -- https://s3.amazonaws.com/media.wishpond.com/media/005/164/430/original.jpg?1434469620

Is this something you might be interested in? If yes, you can enter the project here:
http://www.bocabearings.com/innovation-contest/Contestants.aspx .

You are welcome to share our contest information with friends who have similar interests and those who like a challenging project. Like you, we are enthusiasts for all types of inventions, kinetic hobbies and art that combines technology, skills and hands-on.

The contest runs from now until November. We will also be giving away GoPro Cameras and DJI Phantom drones each month, and at the end of the contest we will be giving away two 3D Printers and $5000 in prizes.

We look forward to hearing from you.
 
Best regards,
 
Boca Bearings Team

Oooh shiny. Maybe I could redo the solar collector to use bearings...
I like colors.

I don't know. I took a quick look through, but it's a big box of ones of things. I'll be bringing it tonight to share with anyone doing the contest. I'd hoped to do a big build night with the parts instead of people just grabbing stuff, but I just haven't had the bandwidth and it's not fair for me to hang on to them. So, if you make anything sexy with said parts, can haz pictures for the blog? That's all they wanted in return.

Just to confirm, the kit was from Servo City, who should get a shoutout on a blog post for any projects made with their stuff, and they're not affiliated with Boca Bearings, although there could be project overlap?
I like colors.

Yep, sorry, forgot to redefine "them"/"they". /can'tBrain


We just happened to have a box of awesome things when Boca's contest was announced.
