Thanks for posting this.  It's a great selection of projects.  While checking them out, I noticed that one of the links is a repeat of the one above it.  Thought you might like to correct it.  Wearable, Soft Robotic Exoskeleton Gloves goes to the Magpie project.

You would think the HackadayPrize is their big thing and they would put some time to read the comments here and make the fixes (I've been told this contest page is the best place to contact them early june or july). But look like their focus is on HackadayU & Remoticon.
