Bend Me, Shape Me …

In March Hackaday started accepting designs for flexible PCBs for a new contest; you didn’t have to have a working prototype as they were more interested in seeing creativity and designs than finished products.  In the end it was well worth submitting a design, as there were 70 entries, to go with 60 prizes.  Some examples of the designs were an E-Ink homage to the Pebble Watch, a flexible piezoresistive sensor element to improve the custom fitting of prosthetic limbs to someone who figured out how to make their own replacement flex PCB to repair a digital camera lens. 

Check out the rest and see what inspires you or that you might want to use yourself.

Congratulations to all the winners of the Flexible PCB contest. We hoped the contest rules would prove challenging both through the constraints and the freedom of the rules. We weren’t disappointed. And here’s hoping that everyone takes a look at the new Connected World contest.
