The world is staring down a lot of serious problems. Fixing problems is what you do. In 2015 the Hackaday Community will focus its creative efforts on solving serious issues. It's good for the planet, it's good for humanity, and it's a great excuse to spend way too much time in your basement, garage, lab, or workspace.
Of course we're also going to make this interesting. The 2014 Hackaday Prize went big with a trip into space for the grand prize winner. We will go big for the 2015 Hackaday Prize.
What does this mean for you? Build something using readily available technology, tools, and manufacturing processes. Show how others can leverage your creation to solve problems that matter and you, your team, or your company can earn the Hackaday Prize.
We can't share all the details until the official launch of the contest, but add your email the box above to receive updates and follow @hackadayprize for the latest info as our plans take shape.
