The Grand Prize is a trip to space or the cash alternative of $196,418,
which could buy your hackerspace a lot of equipment. There are other
fantastic prizes to be won including a milling machine, a top grade 3D
printer, a trip for one to Akihabara electronics district in Japan, and a
bunch of Hackaday swag.

We've put on this competition because we want to foster innovation. You
keep complete control and ownership of your project, and we encourage the
use of open platforms.
