7400 Logic Series Design Contest

I just found this 7400 series Design Contest.

http://dangerousprototypes.com/open-7400-logic-competition/

Entries must be received by October 21, 2011, 6AM GMT. Winners will be announced on November 1, 2011.

Judging criteria and categories
Entries will be judged for:
  • Originality. A smart new design that inspires
  • Documentation. Schematics, theory, pictures and/or video
  • (Mis)use of 7400 logic. Show us what 7400 logic was (never) meant to do
  • Technical prowess
  • Build quality
  • Imagination and creativity

Looks like a lot of fun! Get your solding irons heated up! Below is a link to an ebay sellar that is selling 74HC00 Series Logic kits; a great place to get a bunch of parts for cheap.
