Meet the Final Batch of 26 Free Hardware Winners! Submit Your Project Documentation to Seeed’s “IoT Into the Wild Contest for Sustainable Planet 2022” to Win $18,000+ in Prizes by September 27th
Currently, Seeed Studio is running “IoT Into the Wild Contest for Sustainable Plant 2022” on Hackster.io. To date, 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 free hardware kit next week.
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):
