The Hackaday Prize has been around for a few years now, and some of the winning projects have been very impressive.  This years process is a little different, instead of having different categories of projects such as Robotics or Power Harvesting the prizes are awarded for the most effective participant at each stage of their project.  Those stages are Concept, Design, Production, Benchmark, and Communication with a $10,000 prize for each, with the final winner taking home $125,000 as well as a residency at Supplyframe DesignLab, who are working with Hackaday this year.

Head over for more details, including seed money available for crowd favourites as well as rules and entry steps.

"This is the 2019 Hackaday Prize, the worldwide hardware design contest focused on product development. We know you can build a working prototype, and we still want to see you do that. But a great idea should have reach beyond your own workshop. This year’s Hackaday Prize is about taking your product across the finish line, from concept to design for manufacture."
