Last week the Hackster.io “Give Your Hardware a Home” challenge came to a close, wrapping up 60 days of intense competition. As outlined in our original blog post, the challenge was fairly straightforward: pick one of three electronics hacks that don’t have a “home,” and use Fusion 360 to design an enclosure for them.
Not surprisingly, we had 41 outstanding entries, so selecting 3 winners was no easy task. Let’s take a look at the winning entries!
1st Place | iStrat Internet Radio Guitar | Dave Clarke
Dave clark wowed us with this ornamental, yet modern internet radio. The design combines freeform sculpting, as well as detailed work on the inside to house all the electronics. David went above and beyond, creating 7 entries to the contest, and even some truly jaw-dropping animations.
2nd Place | Mini-Vintage Internet Radio | Guilherme Schallenbach
The detail Guilherme put into this vintage internet radio is truly phenomenal. From button functionality to assembly instructions, every detail was accounted for in this remarkable design. To our amazement, this was Guilherme’s first time using any 3D modeling software. If this is just the beginning, we can’t wait to see what’s next!
3rd Place | Homer Wi-Fi Door Sensor | Pipe Aguirre
This creative Wi-Fi door sensor by Pipe Aguirre truly put a smile on our face. Despite the comical design, Pipe put some serious effort into all the details that go into the internal structure of the design. Similar to Dave, Pipe submitted multiple entries into the contest, proving his serious Fusion 360 chops!
So that wraps up the Hackster.io “Give Your Hardware a Home” contest. Make sure to stay tuned for more Fusion 360 design challenges in the near future, and because we were so impressed by all of the designs, we’ll leave you with some more of our favorites!
