Arduino & Invent-Off #WhyWait
#WhyWait Invent-Off is a webseries powered by Qualcomm where 2 teams are challenged to invent something that will inspire change and impact positively the future.
During 5 days, each team made up of engineers, artists and students are tasked to create something that solves a problem using any technical equipment put at their disposal but with the requirement of incorporating :
- The Qualcomm wireless connectivity technology which is integrated in the Arduino Yún.
- A Qualcomm snapdragon powered device like a tablet, a smartphone or a smartwatch.
After 5 days, their inventions will be reviewed by a panel of judges and the winning team will get $5,000, a feature in Gizmodo, and a participation in the Qualcomm CES booth this January.
Episode 1 of the serie, hosted by the talented Jason Silva (Brain Games) has already been released and the second episode will go live today ! Moreover, find out this Friday which team wins and tune in for the next set of episodes on August 17, 19, and 21.
So why wait ? Start watching the next episode to see what ideas the teams came up with and start acting by helping or influencing their invention with the online chat.
