Create the Future

09 Mar

     We are now accepting entries for the 2012 “Create the Future” Design Contest, sponsored by COMSOL, Nordson EFD, and Tech Briefs Media. The tenth annual contest will recognize outstanding innovations in product design worldwide, awarding a Grand Prize of $20,000 USD. There is no cost to enter. Visit to get started.

New this year: in addition to descriptive text and illustrations, you have the option to submit a video about your idea. Entries can be submitted by individuals and/or teams in seven categories:

Consumer Products
Machinery & Equipment
Medical (sponsored by Value Plastics)
Safety and Security
Sustainable Technologies

          The top entry in each category will receive a workstation computer from Hewlett-Packard. Prizes also will be awarded for the ten most popular entries as voted on by site registrants. (The contest site attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year!) Winning entries will be featured in a special supplement to NASA Tech Briefs magazine, the world’s largest-circulation design engineering magazine. The Top 100 entries overall, as determined by an industry panel of judges, will receive a certificate of achievement suitable for framing.

All entries must be received by June 30, 2012.

Please forward this e-mail to your colleagues so they too can enter and win.

Good luck!
