The goal is simple: create the coolest thing you can think of out of discrete logic components, by the 21st of October. They will be judged as follows:
Originality. A smart new design that inspires
Documentation. Schematics, theory, pictures and/or video
(Mis)use of 7400 logic. Show us what 7400 logic was (never) meant to do
Imagination and creativity
I hope to see some truly awesome things come out of this, and I'm also looking forward to seeing what the lucky winners can do with our hardware later.
