Ah, I'm a bit disappointed that my Scratch idea didn't win. :/

But good job to everyone, the entries were all awesome!

That is bizzare. cgenco copied the pee logger from here  http://www.makeymakey.com/forums/index.php?topic=101.0
and he even says in the comments he's copied it (but doesn't credit it as is the basis of all open source).  Is that what they teach undergrads these days?  Zero kudos guys.

I'm a bit disappointed with some of the entries that placed higher than mine, but I guess I'll still be getting the kit when the Kickstarter rewards ship.

Ditto on Venomoth's notion of being featured in the earlier E-mail, and an honorable mention is nice too.

This is the nature of this kind of contest, especially this is a bonus from the Makey team.
It's just really hard to pick the winners from that many entries without anyone unhappy.
I finished building my entry and have a display picture, but still didn't even get a honorable mention :S .

Can't wait to get my Makey so I can finish it and get it working.
Just have to hang in there for 3 more months.

It's a blast and an honor to have been selected. A lot of the proposed projects were awesome and it must've been tough picking a top ten. Glad to be in that top ten, but for those who didn't place just remember that Jay and Eric were probably trying to pick a broad range of applications that can showcase the MaKey MaKey's versatility. So your entry could have been great, and from what I've seen probably was, and it just didn't match the criteria they needed at the moment.

Who knows? Maybe your pet project might become a YouTube star or draw crowds at the next Maker Faire. All of us, whether we get an early kit or have to wait for the orders to ship, are Makers and we're going to hack the crud out of this thing.

Looking forward to getting my naked and nearsighted rodent minions to play in synchronized harmony, and thanks for the win!

P.S.> And I'm going to use my Kickstarter order to make that Pee Logger. That's going to be great!

Ahh you're quite right; my immense apologies! Acknowledgement has been added to the top of my post.

:D I'll be sure to document the process well so it's as replicable as possible.

Time to start experimenting with methods of pee conduction!

I got an honourable mention? Sweet! Also probably means what I described is possible, which is nice. Guess now I have to try and Make(y) it happen when I get my Makey Makey.
