It’s a new week, and we’ve got new and shiny prizes to give away in the Gizmodo Giveaway week! Today you’re playing for: a 32GB iPod Touch (Product RED edition), valued at $329 thanks to our friends over at Dyson.
This competition is now closed.
Tollstar walked away with the prize for inventing a way to save the world for his own personal gain:
Step 1: build clone machine
step 2: obtain Sir James Dyson DNA, probably in a manner resembling mission impossible (que mission impossible music)
Step 3: use obtained DNA to create a Sir James Dyson clone
Step 4: inform Sir James Dyson clone that the year is 2087, the world is now an apocalyptic wasteland after an experimental bomb turned the air toxic. It is now up to you, Sir James Dyson clone, to build us an air filtration system powerful enough to clean the toxic air and return our planet to its former, life infested, glory. (note to self, find out if Morgan Freeman could prerecord speech)
Step 5: assume he can do it before 10am tomorrow, give a few motivational high fives
Step 6: write a short description of Sir James Dyson clone’s air filtration system in gizmodo comments
Step 7: win iPod
Step 8: destroy clone machine, no man should have such power
Step 9: ???
Step 10: profit
Nice one, Tollstar. An iPod Touch for you!
The brand new, 6th-Generation iPod Touch has been overhauled both outside and in to be the prettiest and most functional iPod Touch yet. Not only is it crazy-thin and wonderfully light, but it also has the specs of an iPhone 4S. Boasting a 4-inch Retina display, a dual-core A5 processor and a five-megapixel rear camera with added strap, this thing is the media hub of your dreams.
It’s valued at $329 and comes pre-installed with Dyson’s new game: Dyson Balloon Game. It’s crazy-addictive and you’ll spend a good while cracking through the 61 challenging levels. It’s available on the App Store if you want to pick it up for yourself.
All you have to do to win this excellent prize is tell us what you would invent if you were a genius like Sir James Dyson. He’s already invented bladeless fans, bagless vacuums and those funky Airblade hand-dryers, and God only knows what he’s got cooking next.
If you were a genius inventor like James Dyson, what would you invent and why?
It could be a jetpack that helps you get to your mate’s house, or a self-crushing Coke can that improves recycling, or even a time-travelling Police Box. The sky is the limit. Just tell us what you would invent and why.
Full terms and conditions.
Entries close tomorrow (Tuesday, 18 December) at 10:00am AEDT. The winner will be announced shortly after that.
