Festo competition calls on all inventors

A home-made cocktail machine which mixes a 'Sex on the Beach' fully automatically, or a robot which casually pours out a cup of tea - if you have ideas like this, you should take part in the Festo's 'Productivity Contest'. Simply make a video of your invention and post it on Facebook by 13th March 2015. In addition to a VIP invitation to the Hannover Messe trade fair, you could win other attractive prizes such as an iPad Air 2.

The contest is open to all inventors who use Festo electrical and pneumatic automation products not only professionally but also in their spare time to create systems of their own. These include creative developments and designs which make life easier or are simply fun - there are no limits to ingenuity, as the sample videos show.

The winners will receive their prizes on 13th April 2015 on the Festo stand, Hall 15 D07, at the Hannover Messe. To post your entry, visit Festo's Facebook page:
