Tronicgr - The winner of our xCORE Analog sliceKIT competition
Our recent xCORE Analog sliceKIT competition was a great success, with 111 qualifying entries! 
We'd like to thank you all for your 10-word project ideas, but there can only be one winner and on this occasion that winner was Tronicgr, with the following project idea:
How about building 6DOF Stewart platform real time motion controller
The winner was chosen by our Chief Operating Officer, Mark Lippett, who commented that the quality of project ideas was to a very high standard and it was very difficult to choose just a single winner. 
We will continue to run competitions for other XMOS devices in the future and we will be rewarding the most active XCore community users as well (more on this soon!).
There were some excellent project ideas, and we encourage you all to set these up in the Project section of the community. We have a special Project Idea category so you can have it set up there before you actually start any work towards your goal.
Honourable mentions:
(These are some of the interesting project ideas that sadly didn't win this time around but caught our eye nonetheless)
  • Virtual Reality Glasses With Real Time Object Detection For Gaming
  • Captain of my autonomous sailing yacht, for the Microtransat Challenge
  • Graphics card host for Nvidia Maxwell for crypto currency mining
  • Structural health monitoring for civil infrastructure using smart sensing technologies
Thanks again to everyone who entered and watch this space for more competitions and offers from XMOS.
And as always, don't forget to Like us on Facebook, or Follow Us on Twitter, to keep up-to-date with the latest developments at XMOS.
Kind regards

  1. Great News..! Post some perform comparative between Xmos and Thanos Interface.

    1. Still too early to say. Needs lots of electrically conversion first as the slicekit works with 3.3v signals. It may take time to have any practical comparison data.
