Element14 ‘Upcycle it’ winners chosen

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-07-25
Element14  has announced winners of its ‘Upcycle it’ design challenge.

Sponsored by Intel, element14 challenged 15 community members to Upcycle an unwanted or waste product to give it a new or enhanced lease of life.

The application areas for this challenge and ability to use unlimited components to complete an original electronics-based project offered true design freedom, an opportunity that the challengers did not turn down.

“We were delighted to see so many innovative ideas come through, upcycling retro items with electronics to serve a purpose in the 21st century – and proving that upcycling is not just about furniture and art,” says element14’s Dianne Kibbey.

The top three entries are:

Grand Prize Winner Carmelito Andrade from the United States, upcycled a mirrored clock into a truly functional household IoT Hub, using the Intel Edison to help users prepare for their day ahead. The clock provides an update on the weather, temperature, and traffic, as well as presenting new emails and even the latest news from social media. The judges were impressed with the use of fabrication techniques used, such as 3D printing, to incorporate new technology whilst maintaining the retro look of the clock.
