And the Spring 2015 winner of the Cup of IOT challenge is …

We have a winner! The #Madein3D social challenge, 6th edition done in Spring 2015, focused on the Internet of Things, was called Cup of IoT.

This competition was organized by Dassault Systèmes, partnering with: Withings, NoDesign, Prodways, ESNumerique, Cap Digtial and Gizmodo.

The objective was to challenge designers and engineers around the world. Through this international competition, makers let their imagination travel!

The winning teams have been announced at the 3DS Headquarter campus and had the opportunity to pitch their innovative project on stage in front of a crowded amphitheater! During the ceremony, they were rewarded with prizes from Dassault Systèmes and the partners (a smart watch from Witings, iPads). More importantly, their prototypes will be manufactured by Prodways, and they received a free 3DExperience platform license including all professional software for design, simulation and systems as well as industrial mentoring from Dassault Systemes.

The jury picked 3 winners for 2 prizes: Fingy is the 2nd runner-up, Navsafe is the 1st runner-up and Open Space Agency wins the completion with their Ultrascope project! Congratulations to them and to all the participants!

The Ultrascope project is unique and very innovative! Thanks to 3D printing technology, an Arduino open hardware board and a Microsoft Lumia smartphone, everyone can build his own telescope to detect asteroids. The final goal of this project is to encourage people to help NASA to monitor the sky 24/7. Watch the interview of Jordan McRae, founder of Open Space Agency, to learn more about his telescope and the Cup of IoT contest:
