The new embeddedSPARK Summer Challenge is now on, and you can submit your project idea NOW! The SUMMER Challenge is a new version of the original embeddedSPARK challenge and is based on Windows Embedded Standard (as opposed to CE). Three Finalists will be invited to present live on stage at ESC Boston in September.
If you decide to participate and would like to blog your progress on EmbeddedRelated.com, please let me know! This could make for an intersting blog.

Second Place ($5,000) Uber Tag - by Wally Nehls
Uber Tag is the ultimate team combat system. Featuring high powered infrared guns, and real time communications between system including GPS based location data, allows you to know where your teammates are and allows you to call an airstrike on your enemy!
Second Place (tie) ( $5,000) The Bowman's Assistant - by George Mallard
Rowing is a popular sport where one to nine participants row in sync to propel a 25 to 60 foot boat known as a shell. The bowman, who sits in the front of the shell, could be considered the captain. The bowman must steer the shell with voice calls to the crew. Additional bowman tasks include navigating the course, avoiding obstacles and other shells in the race, and maintaining the stability of the shell.
This embedded system will be worn by the bowman and will integrate and display crew and shell performance data.
