Hackaday Community Editor, Contributor. Embedded systems software and hardware engineer by day, Jack of all trades by night.
I'm here to finally document some of the projects I've been working on. I'm also here to browse and see the awesome all of you have been creating in your own workshops.
Howdy. It seems like the way it works is someone from the official HackADay team posts an initial entry on your project and then they are your point of contact in the contest. Sorry if I misinterpreted this. The reason I bring it up is I was wondering if there is any notification that you are eliminated. I noticed the 50 semi finalists list and was wondering if one is not there if one should consider oneself 'eliminated'? Thanks
Johnathan, we announced the semifinalists here: http://hackaday.com/2014/08/25/50-semifinalists-selected-for-next-stage-of-the-hackaday-prize/
Unfortunately, your projects didn't make the cut - but we would love to see you continue working on them.
Your previous comment on my project page: Don't forget to upload some pics of the actual board when you get it (I'd love to see before and after you build them up)

I am finally at that stage! PCB passes basic hardware sanity.
