A look at the 2015 Hackaday Prize semi-finalists

Hackaday reveals the 100 semi-finalists who are one step closer to a trip into space. 

After nine months of tinkering, developing and building, submissions for the 2015 Hackaday Prize have come to a close. In total, there were just shy of 1,000 entries from Makers all across the world, each sharing the common goal of moving humanity forward.


And now, Hackaday has narrowed the pool down to 100 projects who will be moving on to the next round — one step closer to the grand prize of a trip into space (or $196,883). These designs will continue to be refined by the contestants through the September 21st deadline, where 10 finalists will be selected.

Congratulations to all of the 2015 Hackaday Prize semi-finalists, but especially those using our chips! With approximately 60% of the entries below embedded with an AVR or Atmel | SMART MCU, it looks like there’s a good chance that this year’s winner will once again be powered by Atmel!
