Call for Ideas:M5Stamp Pico Base Design Challenge 2021

The results of great inventions often seem simple, however, they can provide practical solutions to real-world problems.

This year 2021, M5stack is challenging innovative and entrepreneurial engineering, design professionals and recent graduates from around the world to design a solution to a real-world problem. Aiming to unlock the diverse creative potential of individuals seeking solutions to critical problems, the selected winner will be rewarded with a generous 100 pieces of M5Stamp Pico! In addition, the ability to follow the development of open source hardware, from coder to designer, from creator to inventor.

Many young people have dreams of changing the world and this campaign has been created to help them achieve," said Jimmy, M5Stack CEO and founder. "The call for entries not only provides strong project support for entrants' creative proposals, but also a platform to showcase and validate the value of their designs. The data shows that 65% of the international awardees were able to commercialise their creative solutions, which is quite an impressive achievement. I hope to see many more innovative inventions that think outside the box. Good luck to everyone!"
