Here’s your chance to be part of the future… and also part of the remains left over after a rebel group goes after the people responsible for the creation of our friendly humanoid companions.

You may be familiar with the REEM-A or REEM-B developed by PAL Robitics. Well, as you might be able to guess, REEM-C is in development and claims to be the one of the most advanced humanoid robots in the world… and guess what? They need YOU to design a snazzy exterior for the chunky beast.

Details are on Life in the Robotics Lab, but needless to say, elegant, not scary, not toy-like and recognizable are going to be a great challenge. Up for it? Here’s what’s up for grabs.

The deadline for submission is the 1st of October 2010. The winners will be announced on the 15th of October 2010. The prizes are:

1st prize: 1.200 USD (it will be assigned only if at least 15 eligible entries are received).
2nd prize: 600 USD (it will be assigned only if at least 20 eligible entries are received).
3rd prize: 200 USD (it will be assigned only if at least 25 eligible entries are received).

You can submit your design and get a 3D model of the REEM-C (done in Blender) right over here.

Thanks Jorge Velázquez! You will be spared!!!
