Have you developed a technology or product that deserves more attention? Do you think it could help make the future a bit brighter? Does it solve some problem, provide an alternative source of energy, or provide a way to improve the human condition? Then you should consider entering the 2011 "Create the Future" contest. By doing so you could potentially win $20,000 and increase public awareness of your technology!
The "Create the Future" contest first started in 2002, and was organized and launched by the
publishers of NASA Tech Briefs magazine. The contest is sponsored by a number of companies including
COMSOL (a company that produces physics simulation software),
PTC (a product development company that provides software solutions), and
Digi-Key (an electronic component supplier). Over the past several years the contest has helped award and bring attention to the inventors of many new technologies.
Two winning entries have been featured on this site. They are Raphial Morgado's "Massive Yet Tiny"
engine and Litroenergy's "Litrospheres."
The Massive Yet Tiny engine won first prize in 2005 and the Litrospheres won grand prize in 2007.
The rules of the contest are very straightforward. The contest began March 1st, 2011 and entries must be received by 11:59 pm ET on June 30th, 2011. You must choose one of seven categories for your entry. These categories include Consumer Products, Electronics, Machinery and Equipment, Safety and Security, Sustainable Technologies, and Transportation. You must provide a description of your entry in the form of a technical abstract that can be no longer than five hundred words. In addition, you must upload at least one to three visual illustrations of your product. The full rules can be found
The judging method to determine the winners is also straightforward. Twenty four judges will be recruited by Tech Briefs Media group from NASA Tech Briefs magazine's editorial board of readers. The judging panel will also include one representative from each sponsor. This panel will choose the Grand Prize and Category winners. All registered users of the contest website will be allowed to vote on the Most Popular Entries. Each registered user will be allowed one vote. All winners will be notified and announced in September of 2011.
The Prizes are as follows:
Grand Prize (1)
$20,000 USD, provided by principal sponsors PTC and COMSOL
First Prize in Each Category (7)
A workstation computer (mobile or desktop) provided by Hewlett-Packard
Popular Vote Winners (10)
A SpaceNavigator 3D mouse from 3DConnexion
Top 100 Entries (100)
Certificate of Achievement suitable for framing
Please remember that there are many different categories in which you can submit an entry. If you have an idea for an exotic new firearm you could submit it in the Safety and Security category. On the other hand, if you have an exotic new solid state component that makes the transistor obsolete you should submit it to the Electronics category. Of course if you have an overunity device that produces more power than it consumes you should submit it to Sustainable Technologies!
Anyone with an innovative technology should consider entering this contest. It seems like an idea way to attract attention towards new technologies and products. In addition, you get to vote on other entries and help determine who wins some of the prizes. Also, after spreading the word about your technology, you will be able to learn about other emerging technologies and perhaps make valuable contacts. It seems like a win-win proposition, even if you don't win the Grand Prize!
