chipKIT uC 32 and chipKIT Wifi shield winner

Posted on Thursday, August 16th, 2012 in contest by DP

Today we announce the winner of the chipKIT uC 32 and chipKIT Wifi shield!  There were lots of great ideas, thanks for your submissions.

Congratulations to Andreas, his idea for an internet connected Nixie Tube Clock scored him a chipKIT uC 32 and chipKIT Wifi shield:

Have a bunch of alphanumeric nixie tubes in a drawer, this would be the perfect oppertunity to put them to good use and create a internet connected nixie tube clock. WiFi could be used for auto synch the clock, show weather info and maybe even display rss / twitter messages :)

Thank you to Microchip and Digilent for the free swag.

Thank you for participating, there were a bunch of great ideas. As always feel free to share your projects in the forum.
