Global semiconductor and electronic component distributor Mouser Electronics is a principal sponsor of the 17th Create the Future Design Contest
Create the Future Design Contest, the world’s premier engineering design competition, is offering engineers, students, and entrepreneurs around the world a chance to win $20,000 and global recognition.
The 17th annual Create the Future Design Contest is now open for submissions. To win this grand prize, one need to create an innovative, new product idea that benefits society and the economy.
The grand prize winner will be chosen from the winners in seven entry categories: Aerospace and Defense, Automotive/Transportation, Consumer Products, Electronics/Sensors/IoT, Manufacturing/Automation/Robotics, Medical, and Sustainable Technologies.
Individual and team entries are invited from engineers, students, and entrepreneurs. The best part is there’s no cost to enter.
An ‘Invisible Glass’ bagged the grand prize last year
Previous contests have produced more than 14,000 design ideas from engineers, entrepreneurs and students in more than 100 countries.
Previous grand prize-winning entries include an economical rapid screening device to prevent food-borne illness and a wheelchair propulsion system designed to increase the user’s mobility while decreasing upper body repetitive strain injuries.
Last year’s grand-prize-winning entry was Invisible Glass, developed by Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Center for Functional Nanomaterials. Invisible Glass presents a method for creating surface nanotextures that effectively eliminate optical reflections from glass, silicon and plastics.
About the Contest
The Create the Future Design Contest was created in 2002 by the publishers of Tech Briefs magazine to help stimulate and reward engineering innovation.
It brings attention to product designs that enhance quality of life, improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare or help to reduce dependence on nonrenewable energy sources.
