December 20th Update: The contest is now closed.
Thank you to everyone who submitted an entry.
* And extra thanks for those that read and followed the rules.
Special thanks to everyone at Itead Studios that made this contest happen.
Though we aimed to selected the best 25 finalists, just 10 entries received
- so all of the entries have been posted below.
Up voting will be limited to a 24-48 hour period
- we want to be able to announce the contest winner before Christmas.
- besides up voting, discussions should be made in Contest Chatter
December 26th Update:
Congratulations to our winners:
We would like to thank everyone who participated, both those in an active and a passive manner. We hope that everyone had fun, and please keep your attention for our future challenge announcements
The nature of the challenge was to do something slick and/or genius
... something a bit above normal nextion out of the box that enhances general usage
It certainly wouldn't have required an entire project just to demonstrate their slick idea in 40 sec.
But really, I am super surprised so few made an attempt. So many prize go unawarded.
I develop software for home brewers. The project is based on the display Nextion Enhanced and the microcontroller esp8266.
.... and that's all folks, these are this years 10 contestants.
So we again thank those that made a contribution,
and a very special thanks to those at Itead for making this Challenge happen.
So begin your up voting now, the time to up vote your fav will be limited indeed.
Congratulations to Francisco and thanks for my second place ...
You said it was mailed? Entries were suppose to be submitted via the contest server
entry.hml form. When was your entry mailed to what address?
#2) Motorcycle Active Dashboard
I'm using a Nextion HMI display as main dashboard for my bike. The display communicates with a main ECU placed below the motorcycle seat. The display is assembled in a 3D printed housing, which includes 4 general purpose LEDs. The dashboard is able to display the following data:
- Motor rpm
- Vehicle speed
- fuel level
- selected gear
- water temperature
- air temperature
- ECU or engine errors
I'm also using the touch screen to set up some motorcycle functions, as the heated grips or the hazard lights. this is still a work in progress, but the dashboard is already correctly working on the motorcycle (BMW K75).
#5) WiFi Button
Like Amazon Dash Button, using ESP8285 and a very simple circuit and firmware is possible to build a Dash Button clone with open features, like MQTT commands, to control home device using NodeRED platform.
#6) Moustly printed CNC
I have today a HMI on a raspberry pi and 7inch screen that is funktional but i have been qurious about making a better HMI with a screen that allows me to design My own look of how i want it to look with the buttons and other stuff. I believe that the Nextion display would work great for me but until now i have managed with the solution i have today. The Nextion displays will make it possible to develop this projekt further the way i see it and maybee the perfecr solution to a lot of problems so i would be wery happy if i could get hold of one for free to try to develop this to the next level.
#7) Controlling and Monitoring a System using Bilingual Human Machi
The goal of this project is to provide an interface for controlling a Home Assistant instance. We've not always our laptop or our smartphone switched on; a simple interface, realised with a nextion display and connected to an ESP8266 could be a really good choice. I've already a Github (https://github.com/mertenats/Open-Home-Automation) page with some examples (with Sonoff switches, for example) with Home Assistant and the MQTT protocol. This protocol is a good way to exchange data between the home automation controller and the display (ESP8266/ESP32).
#9) Autopilot display
A display simulating e-ink display for a bridge control panel. Is used to show data required for the autopilot system. That is propeller power and rudder position. The brightness is also configurable using a potenciometer. The special need for the display is a progressbar that need to be able to start from the middle and increase to both side. That is done using 2 bars with opposite colors for background and foreground and a data modification in the arduino.
#10) Comac Hand dryer
this is world first hand dryer with integrated LCD can monitor device specification and display advertising messages and real-time information.
