A big "Thank You Very Much!" to all the people who participated and uploaded one or more photos of their homelab. There is some great stuff in there. From gearslut labs to messy bedrooms, and from garages to really-well-organized workspaces. Must-have homelab tool "the cat" is present too (in at least two places, can you find them all?). The winner is: Cyrob. The €100 voucher for the Elektor Shop is for you!

Wait a minute, I know I have it somewhere...

Elektor Labs Summer Contest 2019

It is summer again (at least in parts of Europe), meaning that it is time to run our yearly Elektor Labs summer competition. The subject of this year’s summer competition is all but original, but at least it is easy to participate.

Participate now and win €100!

All you have to do is post a photograph of your electronics home lab as a comment below this post and you are in. At the beginning of September 2019, the jury will select the photo it feels is best (the number of stars, views and comments may have an influence), and its poster will be rewarded with an Elektor e-Shop voucher worth €100!
