An IBM sponsored contest is underway on Instructables in which you are challenged you to build internet-connected solutions that make you or your world smarter, using tech in cool new ways. Connect products and devices, build apps, or hack a process.


The contest is for new IoT instructables between Oct 10, 2016 and Jan 2, 2017 (11:59pm PT). Whether in the realm of your home, your work, your health or your recreation, any build related to the "Internet of Things" is eligible. However there are two "judges prizes" for projects that use the IBM Watson or Watson IoT Services, or open source Node-RED visual programming tools.

Top projects will win a MakerBot 3D printer, Autel drone, GoPro camera, and much more - there are 29 prizes on offer. Projects will be judged on creativity, originality, and documentation of the Instructable.
