Developer contests are omnipresent in the drone technology world. Last week, FLIR added to the list with a competition aimed at the “Maker” community. Hosted by Wired Insider, five “makers” will win a trip to the annual CES show in Las Vegas in January where they will have an opportunity to present their prototypes.
“Semifinalists will then be tasked to make a prototype that features a FLIR Lepton micro thermal imaging camera, and we’ll assign a FLIR mentor to each semifinalist for support during this stage. FLIR will then fly the semifinalists to CES to present their prototypes onstage at the FLIR booth from the CES showfloor.”

Judges will select the finalists by the product’s innovativeness, operability, compelling thermal factors and commercial viability. The grand prize winner will be honored at the Wired Café at CES and in Wired magazine. The deadline to enter is November 11, and we’ll select the semifinalists on November 15.
