Time-travelling robot assassins may not have brought about the apocalypse (yet!), but they sure are entertaining to watch. Imagination (in collaboration with Hackster.io) is running a Terminator-themed hardware competition.
The goal is to create some Terminator-inspired, Creator Ci20-powered device. The Ci20 is Imagination's Raspberry Pi alternative - powered by their MIPS CPU cores and PowerVR GPUs. The top price includes a Creator Ci40, the new board that's currently being Kickstarted.
Here are the prizes:
1st place (worth $400)
A bag of Imagination-powered goodies, including a Meizu MX5 smartphone, the upcoming Creator Ci40 dev board and other cool accessories and add-on boards from MikroEletronika (£100)
2nd place (worth $200)
A Securifi Almond router and a Creator Ci40 dev board
3rd place (worth $150)
A chipKIT Wi-FIRE dev board and a Creator Ci40 dev board
