Our development contest for the month of October and November will be running through November 15, with final results posted on November 29. With votes being taken from registered users counting as 50% of the tally.

Rules are as follows:
1. Development is not limited to any software or hardware direction; in other words, do whatever your creativity leads you to with whatever you can get your hands on in regards to software or hardware.
2. Your solution should operate on a Kuro Box, though you are not required to use our source code as your platform, however, to participate, you will need to divulge code for our evaluation to qualify.
3. Creativity and Innovation are as important as Commercialism. There are many ways of using Kuro Box to make the world a better place, but there's something really exciting about using it to control a bird feeder.
4. Hot items include multimedia solutions, user interface innovations, mass storage solutions and of hooking Kuro Box to anything you find in your garage.
4. We can make up new rules as we go - sorry.

I hope we can get as many people involved as possible in this first contest. We'll likely hold another immediately following this one, so don't get discouraged if you're running low on time.

We'll accept reentries that have improvements for the next contest, so please don't hesitate to enter this first contest even if you feel you can improve your solution.

We'll firm up the exact prize details over the next couple of days, but I can guarantee that even the third prize winners will have a very nice early Christmas present from Revolution, and a consolation prize to every entrant can be expected as well.

To allow more involvement, we'll stretch the contest at November 29th for submission and conclude the voting a week later.

That still leaves plenty of time to deliver someone the extra Christmas money :wink:
