All you have to do to compete is start a fire. How hard can that be?
Any Fire will do. It can be brief and small or larger and long. However, large and long burning fires are more theatrical, something I’ve come to understand is important to hackerspaces.
The challenge is to create a fire or ignition source that can ignite the sample or another combustible material by mechanically damaging any part of the sample using 24 volts DC max.
Sample furnished at no cost, 1 per Competitor/Team
Combustible materials can only include things found in no particular order:
First aid kit,
Standard Tools common to a mechanic’s tool box
Other combustible materials that can reasonably be found at a manufacturing facility when under construction or during maintenance including things that could be brought in but normally not i.e. under espionage or with malicious intent.
Personnel Protective Equipment common for working in a confined spaces
Hard hat, safety glasses, face shield, respirator, Purified Air Personal Respirator, SCBA Respirator, Escape Respirator, misc. under clothing, pens, pencils, gloves, rescue harnesses, footwear, non-fire retardant coveralls (Tyvek), steel toed shoes, shoe covers, socks, name patches and similar
Combustible materials may not
include: flammable liquids or gasses, fireworks, matches or anything disallowed by LVL1
Sample: an ~12″ length of functional IP 68 LED rope light
Results to be judged based on creativity, simplicity and of course awesomeness. While the judge is not perfect their decision is and that decision is final. Winner take all.
Now let’s get this fire thing started and Win a Benjamin!
