Red Bull Creation Asks Makers to Make, Well, Something Cool

 |  |  |  |  |  June 15, 2011


I usually associate the Red Bull name with large amounts of caffeine, and maybe the occasional cool extreme sports event, but this is the first time the Red Bull name is connected with the DIY/Maker movement – other than the mass-quantities of the sugary concoction geeks down on a regular basis, and the ridiculous “flying” machines which find their way to the Red Bull Flugtag.

Red Bull Creation is an upcoming event in which teams of builders will be challenged to create cool stuff. 16 teams of highly-skilled makers, hackers and inventors will be given a general theme to work with, and then 72 hours to build something really cool. Check out the video below for more on the competition:

Red Bull has already selected the first 10 teams of finalists, and will be announcing the remaining six teams shortly. The finalists in the competition will start building their creations on July 7th, then meet at McCarren Park in Brooklyn, NY on July 10th, 2011 to show off their creations to the world. More info on the competition can be found here.
