"Boca bearing company is giving away over 10 thousand dollars in cash and prizes to the builders , makers, tinkerers, that are in their backyard creating things. We want to recognize that creativity and ingenuity.
Whether its remote control cars, or a robot, or a bicycle, or fishing reel, or an MRI machine, were really looking to inspire young people to take control of making and building and manufacturing, so that they no longer feel like passive consumers but active producers so that they have the confidence to build and make and ultimately become engineers, become scientists, become artists and were also looking to find some products that might have some commercial use that we can get behind.
We’re looking for somebody that already started building something who has a proof of concept that they can show and can concisely convey the project in a video. Each month contestants are expected to drive votes to their video, and the one with the most votes at the end of each month will win a Go-Pro camera and be in the running for the grand prize of 5 thousand dollars or a runner up prize of two 3d printers.
The Boca bearings innovation contest is our way of honoring and inspiring the builders and dreamers who aren’t afraid to hack their environment to better suit their needs. It’s fascinating to hear what inspires these people to do things. A lot of times it’s just because they can. All these components are so accessible that to create an off-the-shelf commercial product today out of your bedroom is easier than ever."
