Overview

Compete. Prove your talent. Meet your future.

Are you the inventor of the century?

Unleash your creative potential with a Do-It-Yourself Electronics Innovation Challenge. Develop a unique design for a homemade sensor or any other electronic applications and compete to win fully paid admission to the NSF2017 KAUST Sustainability Conference.

Electronics are critical for convenience and comfort in our daily lives. The objective of the KAUST DIY Electronics Innovation Challenge is to inspire and empower everyone to build electronics that can improve the quality of our lives.

We encourage you to act and CREATE YOURSELF the innovations you would like to see in your future! We ask you to make a short video of an idea of how to build electronics and electronic applications using everyday household materials.

Get inspired by Professor Muhammad Hussain’s team from the KAUST Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Science and Engineering (CEMSE) Division, who show how household materials can be used to build a skin type multi-sensory platform that can compete in functionality and performances with the most technologically advanced devices on the market but at a much lower cost

We believe that you can do this too! The objective of the challenge is to stretch human imagination and open creative minds to the next generation of electronics for the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Internet of Everything (IoE) applications.
