Competition: Enter the Humana Health by Design Contest

Davide GombaApril 8th, 2010

What a powerful (and useful) competition: Instructable teamed up with Humana to look for the best “health hack”.

So show us how you’ve modded your wheelchair, built a treadmill desk, or made inexpensive prosthetics for the third world. As a prize for the best ideas out there we are giving away three Wii consoles with Wii Fit Plus to encourage both health and play. Other prizes include healthy and delicious California citrus fruit, Pro memberships, t-shirts, and other goodies.

We have been constantly looking for this kind of experimental use of Arduino, such like brailleduino,  or some arduino-based mouse.  More to come.
