*Congratulations to our winner, William, aka wfranzin! William won with his idea to create and automotive diagnostic computer and data logger.

“It’s time to turn that old ‘check engine’ light into ‘check the Pi,'” says William.

We can’t wait to see the finished product next month!! Thank to everyone who entered.

In 2012 we saw some amazing innovations with the little-computer-that-could, the Raspberry Pi. From a tiny learning tool to teach kids to program, to servers built with Legos, this piece of hardware is the new secret ingredient for infinite possibilities. Developers and hobbyists worldwide are taking advantage of the affordability and usability.

The $35 Raspberry Pi Raspberry Pi Computer

What would you do if you had one of your own to build a new piece of tech with? There’s a voice-activated garage door opener and a phone adapter to block robocalls. You could build a great lifehack, something to entertain yourself, or ace a college class with an awesome Raspberry Pi based project.

We have the perfect motivation to get your project started! A Raspberry Pi model B to give away to the most creative idea! Plus, the winner will receive $100 to order parts from Newegg.com to piece together their plan. Then, we’ll feature your invention on the EE Blog!

    One month seems like a pretty short time for any “Real” project and what the heck use is a Newegg gift card for buying electronic components to work with a RaspberryPi, sure you can get your cables and SD cards but who doesn’t have a few of those around already… give a Visa Gift card instead so people can buy from Newark, Mouser, or allelectronics to get some real components.
