SAN JOSE, CA -- Cypress Semiconductor Corp. and Hackster announce a global design competition that gives engineers the opportunity to prototype their innovative ideas that sense the world around us for use in the growing Internet of Things (IoT) market, home appliances, and consumer and industrial applications. The Sensing the World Challenge will use Cypress's easy-to-use CY8CKIT-048 PSoC® Analog Coprocessor Pioneer Kit as the development hardware platform. Hackster will select a winner from three regions—the Americas, Asia Pacific and Australia, and Europe and Africa—and each will receive an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset and development kit.
Initial proposals for the Sensing the World Challenge will be accepted through 11:55 p.m. Pacific Time on October 30, 2016, and 100 entries will be selected to receive the PSoC Analog Coprocessor Pioneer Kit to create a prototype of their idea. Projects will be due by 11:55 p.m. Pacific Time on January 8, 2017 and the regional winners will be announced on January 18.
