The internet of things (IoT) shows its worth when a smart, connected device helps solve a problem in a new and better way, makes something easier and more convenient to do, or gives us greater insight. Do you have such an idea? Enter our contest on Hackster.io. You could take home a Microsoft HoloLens—and have an opportunity to prototype your concept.
Our latest design contest is based on the MAX32620FTHR rapid development platform. This compact board lets you quickly implement portable, function-rich, battery-optimized solutions based on the MAX32620 Arm® Cortex®-M4 microcontroller with floating-point unit. The board includes:
The MAX32620FTHR can be a strong foundation for many smart solutions. By entering the design contest, you gain a chance to win one of these boards. You can also buy your own MAX32620FTHR from the Maxim website for $20.

To enter the contest, submit a written proposal outlining your design idea in one of these categories by the May 12 deadline:
After reviewing the written proposals, our judges will award a minimum of 50 MAX32620FTHR boards to the top entrants with the most innovative and scalable ideas. These top contestants will then move to the next phase of the contest: using the board to create a design prototype featuring their concept. These competitors will compete for one of several prizes for their category and the grand prize, the Microsoft HoloLens.
