The Great AOL CD Invention Contest!

Here’s the deal:

We’re looking for the most creative, unusual, and original use of an AOL CD.

You know, the ones you get in magazines, boxes of cereal, and with every tank of gas. And we’re not talking about installing and actually running AOL, even though that is pretty daring in itself. And no, popping them in the microwave is not original. Using them as Frisbees or coasters is also not original.

Using them as brake discs on your ’84 Caprice is DAMN original and will probably win you the contest. But we’d better see you driving.

We want to see some original and creative uses for these landfill hogs, something we would want to have in our dens and living rooms. Use your imagination!

Contest Rules:

1. The submissions must contain at LEAST one AOL CD used creatively. The more you use, however, the better your chances of winning. You can use as many CD’s as you like, but the discs must be the central focus of your project (i.e. duct-taping the CD to an F-16 is cool and all, but the disc does not provide any function).

2. The CD(s) MUST remain largely intact. If you want to drill a few holes in it, saw a piece off, or tape/glue something to it, cool. If all we see is polycarbonate dust, no dice.

3. The CD(s) must be readily recognizable as an AOL CD. Let that logo show!

4. You may submit your entry using digital video (MPG, AVI, or MOV) or a still image (JPEG, GIF, PNG, or BMP). You must include a short text file or audio clip (WAV, MP3) describing the entry and it’s usefulness. Do NOT mail us your freakin’ project.

5. You must actually construct your project. Fancy photoshop representations of a theoretical project will not be accepted.

The contest will begin at midnight Eastern time on September 20th, 2000, and will end at midnight Eastern time on November 20th, 2000. The staff of Ultimate Chaos will judge the entries starting November 21st, 2000. The winners will be notified via e-mail no later than November 30th, 2000.

Submissions will be judged based on:

Originality
Usefulness
Creativity
Sheer number of AOL CD’s used

Prizes:

One (1) Grand prize winner will receive a Promise FastTrak66 IDE RAID controller and a Hot-swap Kit.

One (1) 2nd prize winner will receive a Sound Blaster Live! MP3+

One (1) 3d prize winner will get a killer swag pack from www.ThinkGeek.com

One Honorable Mention winner will receive a keen Scour T-shirt (mmm...cottony soft)

Contest has ended! Winners will be announced on November 30th!
