As you know, Seeed has launched its open source innovation contest on Hackster.io, which is themed as “IoT Into the Wild Contest for Sustainable Planet 2022” on 8th of June this year, with a strong belief that open tech can lay an important foundation for achieving the UN‘s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), through filling the gap of seriously-lacking AIoT solutions that are applicable, scalable, plug-and-play, and easy-to-deploy at a global level.
By August 8th, we’ve received 207 free hardware applications, along with 500+ people registered as the Contest participants. As the free hardware application has been closed on August 8th, we’ve selected 26 free hardware applicants as the last batch to send out the SenseCAP K1100 – The Sensor Prototype Kit next week (*Initially, the last batch was set to select 22 hardware applicants. However, in an effort to help facilitate more bright makers to have a chance for prototyping, we’ve selected 4 additional applicants.).
So, that being said, meet the final batch of 26 winners who will get the free hardware kit, thanks to submitting their amazing sustainability project ideas (the order of # is according to the free hardware application submission date and time):
#157 Volcano Activity Monitoring System for Residents and Climbers by Tri Susanto (Indonesia)
#175 Detection Method for Preventing Soil Desertification by A.I.Unicorn (China)
#183 City Environment Monitor + Mini Awareness Campaign by Matevž Zorec (Estonia)
#185 Flood and Landslide Detection System for Early Warning by Raul Alvarez-Torrico (Bolivia)
#203 Rescuing Oceans With AI by Arun Varghese (India)
These 26 hardware applicants will shortly receive an email from Hackster Team on the confirmation of winning the free hardware, and then a follow-up email from Seeed Studio for guidance in receiving the free hardware. Congratulations! We shall be looking forward to the implementation of your project ideass, so don’t forget to share your detailed project documentation on the Contest page by September 27, 2022 (at the latest 11:59P.M. by PT).
