Sparks will Fly Challenge - Microsoft announces winner.

Microsoft announced the winner of the "Sparks Will Fly" challenge during the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) Silicon Valley 2009.

If you have been following the challenge, you will know that the 3 finalists had been invited to ESC where attendees could vote for the project of their choice. The finalists were:
  • Doug Conn, with an intelligent medication dispenser project dubbed "The Smart Pill"
  • Jason Hershkowitz, with a home control system dubbed the "Home Brain System"
  • Scott Reed, with an intelligent picture frame dubbed the "Runcible Frame"
And the winner is ....

... Doug Conn and his "Smart Pill" device.

So congratulations Doug!

And if anybody is interested in having a closer look at the "Smart Pill" have a look on YouTube.

So long and thanks for all the fish!
