ThingSpeak, MATLAB, and the Internet of Things

Internet of Things Contest (aka The Easiest Contest Ever)

To celebrate our 300th ThingSpeak channel, we are announcing, “The Easiest Contest Ever”.

All you have to do is build a project using a ThingSpeak web service, take a photo (if it applies), and writeup a description / how-to on your blog, Instructables, or email us the details. We are giving away 20 gift certificates to SparkFun valued at $50 each.

Internet of Things Contest

Some ideas: Use a USB data logger with ThingSpeak Importer, track a car using ThingSpeak geolocation services, create a mashup using ThingSpeak Plugins…wait…we have said too much. We want to be surprised by what you come up with, so feel free to get creative.

Disclaimer: All entries will be published on the ThingSpeak Community Blog and selection is based on meeting the described criteria. All rulings are at the final discretion of the ThingSpeak team members. Let’s see how crazy this will get!

Coming soon: We have some exciting things in store for you. Users have been asking for an index of public channels, so we are going to add a searchable project index soon. This week we will be announcing the beta release of a new application built on the ThingSpeak platform.
