If you’ve already created a home made Arduboy before, you can document it using the Hackster platform to participate. The project creator has an import tool that works pretty well with the Arduboy Community so it’s easy for you to join!
But you are encouraged to make something new! 50 coupon codes for free upgrade to Super Swift service from OSH Park are available to help!
- New Platform - Use a new processor to be Arduboy compatible. ESP32? RP2040?
- Custom PCB - If your project uses a custom designed PCB it will get extra points.
After getting a bunch of attention on their platform for the Nano and Arduglasses we began speaking about working together, and I will be the new Contest Manager at Hackster! This is an awesome opportunity to help teach more people about making and sharing hardware, not limited to a single platform.
What about it! It’s still going on strong! Hackster will be taking a priority but I will still be shipping orders and producing product as demand allows. My new job at Hackster will actually really help Arduboy as I won’t need to draw a salary from it, letting me reinvest all of the profit.
But for now, no new plans other than shipping the FX and starting the next batch!
If you have any questions about the contest, my new job or any feedback in general please do so below! Thank you for all of your support over the years, I am really excited about this new chapter!
