Truth be told, we have a community of some of the Internet’s most adept minds. Subscribers of UsenetServer tend to be much more technologically-inclined compared to the average computer-user. We know it because we see it every day: on social media, on reddit and most commonly – through our exchanges in technical support. You, our users, are an untapped wealth of information, and we’re ready to crack it wide open.
Get those ~creative juices~ flowing, UsenetSever users!
Your challenge is to create something – nearly anything – using the Raspberry Pi 2.
You don’t know what a Raspberry Pi 2 is? We’re really glad you asked! A Raspberry Pi 2 is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into a monitor, keyboard and mouse. It’s a blank canvas for developers and coders alike, and people use it to create some of the most amazing things.
What can you do with a Raspberry Pi 2?
Gather your thoughts and send us the concept of your invention from June 17th-July 17th for a chance to win a second-generation Raspberry Pi and a $100 Visa gift card. You can submit your full concept, as well as find the Challenge Schedule and full set of rules on the UsenetServer Innovation Challenge contest page.
Once you have submitted the idea for your invention, it will be rated by a panel of judges based on four criteria that are each worth 25% of your overall score:
Creativity – Open up your mind to the world of possibilities one can possess with the Raspberry Pi 2, and think of ways to either alter a current invention for the better, or come up with an entirely new concept.
Originality – Create something that is new and unique. Be sure to contemplate whether or not your invention- or something like it- has been created before.
Feasibility – Consider how realistic your innovation is, and if it would be easy for others to replicate. Make sure that it is not too difficult to explain or produce.
Inclusion of UsenetServer service – Be sure to think of ways that the Raspberry Pi 2 can be integrated into the Usenet and VPN services offered by UsenetServer.
