Hey Dave,

Your attempt to attract newbies over to the forum worked swimmingly in my case. One question, I saw this a bit later and will only finish the video today after work which is July 14th in Dallas, TX but is the cutoff your Australian time because then it will be the 15th?

Mezz

I'm a lazy arse, so will likely lock the thread on Monday, if I remember    ;D

I wanted to partecipate, but in the end i won't.
Mixed reasons:
- Fear of the massive import duties on these kind of gifts (but i'm keeping an eye out for mike's giveaway, if he'll be able to do it before brexit, as he said he's not sure he will :-DD)
- Actual need of midrange scope didn't balance out the Fear of the massive tax so it's right that others can get it
but the most important:
- I had THE idea for the video with lots of vibe, but couldn't possibly fit it in 2 minutes (5, i could). So i was conjuring something up, but i didn't have the time to finish it in these two weeks and it wouldn't be as good  :'(

good luck to the partecipants

Will you take the text in the post also into account?
2 minutes is really sort to talk about alle the usecases, especially like my video.

That's part of the challenge.

Got it!

I updated my entry video  8)

Dave just unplug the psu from the scope and send it as a broken one for part salvage as an gift. 

Then the winner could show that it is broken to the customs authorities, get it nearly tax-free. :phew:

And plugging it back in shouln't be that difficuld.

Asking out of pure curiosity:

I was looking through the other replies (Snoopin' out the competition), and noticed two replies which feature breadboard computers with very similar designs:

Here's my entry. I'm an empty nester who finally has the time and the means to work on some fun projects. I also enjoy producing YouTube videos in the hopes of encouraging others to give it a try. I tried to get one of those DSO 138 kits working but it is just way to flaky. I really enjoy the videos where you call BS on the EV Roadway and other stupid stuff.

https://youtu.be/SbUciYEwgS0

This is my participation in the giveaway. I am 20 years old, studying electrical engineering and computer science in Greece. In this video, I show you some of my projects I've worked on (bike light, Digital variable voltage regulator, EEPROM programmer, 8-bit computer) I am also working on wireless communication between Arduinos in order to make an external sensor for my Smart Home weather station where I will also use/need a good oscilloscope to analyse the signals and debug my circuits. I hope you liked my lab and be reassured that this oscilloscope will be in good use in my lab.
https://youtu.be/FR5Y8MvmFW4

Are these based of something I am not aware off? It just seems rather unlikely for two to have such a similar layout? (Same yellow bus, similar chip configuration, similar breadboard layout etc...)

I only noticed because I was working on a project in a similar vein, so it spiked my interest.

Hehe, maybe they are both implementing the same design.  ^-^

That's funny, but not the worst. I saw a few videos were the lab looks fake: Some random equipment sitting on a table or shelves, like someone just borrowed stuff from their office or school lab in order to shoot a 2 minutes video. In that kind of videos, there is no evidence of someone actually working or ever worked with those tools.  ;D

Yes I noticed what looked like some fake entries, not my place to say something though, as I'm entered.

Hi all,

I am Thomas, as 23 year old Computer Science student from the Netherlands. My vid is below (sorry was quiet nervous and had to give the camera back to my friend haha).
Anyway, I love working on electronic projects when I am not busy studying. Have been working on a project that is in desperate need of a scope, but it is way too expensive for me.
But I am sure that some people here are in much greater need of such a good scope.



Love your stuff Dave! Bye!

Edit:
And yes: I did clean up a bit before posting this video. This is also where I study so I make sure everything is pretty neat most of the time (and also my bedroom) ;-)

Another one!

I really don't want to come off like I am making down the competition: If there is a design these are based off I really would want to see it!

On a different Note:

137 replies as of now, which would make 137*2 = 274 mins or 4h 34min

However, I count 28 non entries (Vid offline, only text, length more than 2:10) so 218 submissions.

That still leaves 218 min of video: 3h 38min

I am very suprised by the turnout!

I also got dinged, twice. Easy enough to remove the comments, that no one else saw, on the private video.  :palm:

I have a hard time waiting for the result ....  |O

So what better to do then statistics ... (its not like I have something else to do like my master thesis)  :palm:

A word cloud of all the text of all entries:
cloud" border="0

Posts per day:
post_per_day" border="0

Number of Posts a user has made:
posts_per_user" border="0

Nummer of Users wich made as many posts:
users_per_portcount" border="0

Some ideas for other statistics?

The 2nd graph makes me think there are 2 camps:
"I uploaded as soon as I could"
"Oh crap officially the deadline is tomorrow/now/yesterday I need to upload NOW" (<- Im in that one!)

Statistics are always interesting (as long as the correct data is being collected), interesting information being captured here.

Would it be faire to interpret that second grapoh as saying that there is little point to make a contest longer? People will just submit in the beginning and end anyhow!
