Prize competitions have been accelerating the pace of innovation for centuries. NASA's Centennial Challenges brings together inventors, makers, academia and business to spur advances by offering monetary prize incentives. Teams have taken home more than $6 million in NASA prize money, and much more is available from current and future competitions. We are seeking solutions in current competitions in robotics and unmanned aircraft and potential future events in Cubesats, Mars ascent vehicles and more. The makers are a population of undiscovered challenge winners. Let us show you opportunities to solve tech challenges for NASA and the nation.

EarthMake is a division of Earth Computer Technologies, Inc. a maker of industrial and embedded LCD products. EarthMake's vision is to introduce EarthLCD technology to the Maker Market through special products, application and special end of life deals on LCD displays and electronics to control them. The award winning ezLCD technology from EarthLCD, is the basis of the first EarthMake product. At the World Maker Fair in 2012 we introduce the arLCD (formerly ArduinoLCD) to the Maker marketplace. The arLCD combines the EarthLCD award wining ezLCD smart LCD technology with an Arduino UNO for only $89. We feel that the ability to integrate a color touchscreen GUI into a project will draw more people into the Maker and Arduino marketplaces. While the first product we hope to offer affordable LCD solutions of all kinds to the Maker marketplace.
