Instructables invite entries for Potato Speed Challenge. Potatoes are great little vegetables. Their skins are rich in fiber they are naturally fat- and cholesterol-free. But not only are they great for a variety of recipes, they also have crafty properties as well. Cut and carve them to make a stamp or hook one up to work as a battery. Share your crafty or delectible ideas for a chance to win a gift card and if you incorporate Tinkercad, you could win the Judges’ Prize
The seeds of Instructables germinated at the MIT Media Lab as the future founders of Squid Labs built places to share their projects, connect with others, and make an impact on the world. One of these early places was a blog Zeroprestige, which was an open source hardware experiment for kitesurfing. Here they documented their hand-sewn kites, plywood boards, and other general mayhem that happens when PhDs and high winds collide.
Instructables became that documentation system in 2005, as an in-house project of Squid Labs. When they weren’t solving interesting problems like solar panels for driveways, efficiently harnessing human power, or strain sensing ropes, you could find them sharing Instructables from the workshop. From cooking to 3d printing, to making just about anything fly, Instructables became the recipient of countless hours of tinkering, soldering, stitching, frying, and fun, making just about anything.
Instructables was officially spun out of Squid Labs in the summer of 2006, and has gone on to grow from a modest hundreds of projects to over one hundred thousand. The community that now calls the site home, is an amazing mix of wonder from around the world. Every day we continue to be amazed by the imagination, curiosity, and simple awesomeness of everyone who shares their creations with us on Instructables.
