Take Me with You: Hackaday is Sending People to Space


If you’re not familiar with Hackaday you should check them out. It’s pretty much everything you could want in a site that’s not UncannyFlats.

They’re currently running a contest to develop new open hardware projects that will change the world. So put on your thinking caps and come up with your latest world-changing invention that you would like to give away for free.

Just like any contest the important part here is what the winner gets. A trip to freaking space. The details on the space voyage itself are pretty sparse. So I’m guessing it will take the form of 65 weather balloons tied to your belt. In which case, I’d still volunteer.

I’m working on my project now. You’ll know which one is mine by how it tends to burst into flames right after the warranty is up.
