WIZnet to Hold IoT Design Contest “Curation is Creation”
WIZnet, one of ARM mbed Silicon Partners, will hold IoT Design Contest, titled “Curation is Creation” at cybermakerspace.com. IoT solutions for the contest must be designed on the ARM mbed-enabled WIZwiki-W7500 Platform.
WIZnet has been building Cyber Maker Space, unique in its kind as an IoT UCC Platform, which is, in its essence, a reusable software & library that makes developing and prototyping IoT device easy and fast. This is all made possible with WIZnet Museum at its foundation, which exhibits more than 2,000 UCCs (User Created Content) and adds 100 new every month.
The contest will be held from May to August 2017, with 16 prizes totaling $15,000. WIZnet expects more than 1,500 makers, including at least 500 members of WIZnet Museum, to participate in the contest.
Participants are encouraged to submit their creation early, as entries are revisable until the final deadline. This is in order to celebrate collaboration and engagement, what we consider core values of open source. We urge all participants to leverage the power of the community, give each other feedback, and help one another create the best version of their work.
From September to October 2017, it is open voting period. As this is a contest for fostering the open source community, we wanted to give back the power of the vote to participants.
Please refer to www.cybermakerspace.com to participate.
WIZnet (www.wiznet.io) develops unique Internet Offload Processor(IOP), TCP/IP hardware implementation, which is fast, safe and reliable to perform the data transfer by fully offloading processing of the entire TCP/IP stack without host CPU intervention. IOP adopted in Arduino Ethernet Shield and Arduino Leonardo Platform has been recognized as the de facto standard for Ethernet connectivity.
