Update: The Change the World Challenge

Here is a contest that calls for engineering creativity and vision:    http://element14changetheworld.com/    Note that the deadline for submissions has been extended to February 28, 2017.

I have always been a big advocate on engineering contests that are fair game with proper compensation to the excellent ideas that we see every day. Historic world changing engineering competitions such as artificial intelligence, the first private aircraft in space and Lindbergh’s historic Trans Atlantic flight are only a few of the monumental ideas that have illustrated talent, skills, ingenuity and imagination on the world stage of engineering creativity.

While the industry today seeks an outline of achievable ideas, I would seek advice to protect any product concept or design while entering these competitions as a matter of non-disclosure for any future anticipated developments.
