PopSci’s Build-a-BUG Challenge: Deadline Extended

We've received some great ideas, and will continue to do so until April 1, 2008. Now's your chance to win the coolest open source hardware platform around!

As entries continue to roll in for our Build-a-BUG challenge, we’re excited to announce that you’ve got a little extra time to polish that first- or second-prize entry. We’ll now accept entries for both prize levels until April 1, 2008.

Along with our good friends at Bug Labs, we’re giving a way a full BUG setup to the first prize winner—including a BUGbase and four BUGmodules—for the best application built using the BUG SDK. And if you’re not a programmer, we’re giving away an assortment of BUG and PopSci loot, including a one-year PopSci subscription, to the best idea for a future add-on module. For full contest details and instructions for entering, see the original announcement here.

BUG is the open, modular consumer-electronics hardware and Web-services platform that you can use like Legos to build practically any gadget you can dream up. Learn more (and grab the SDK) at buglabs.net.
