Mouser Electronics Inc., Intel Corp. and Analog Devices Inc. have pledged continued sponsorship for the 14th annual “Create the Future” design contest, an engineering and educational challenge to create the next great thing in electronics.
The contest, produced by Tech Briefs Media Group, will award the grand-prize winner global recognition for his or her achievement as well as a cash prize of $20,000. Previous “Create the Future” contests saw more than 12,000 design ideas from engineers, entrepreneurs and students from more than 100 countries.
The contest is focused on a variety of next-generation product designs, including those that enhance the quality of life, improve efficiency and quality of healthcare, and encourage a reduction on the dependency of non-renewable energy sources. Previous winners include an economical rapid-screening device to prevent foodborne illness, a wheelchair propulsion-system design to increase a handicapped person’s mobility while decreasing upper-body strain injuries, and a mechanism that makes CPR easy and safe for anyone to perform.
The “Create the Future” contest is currently accepting entries now through July 1, 2016. To learn more about the contest visit: http://www.mouser.com/createthefuture.
