We've all heard of extreme sports, but what about extreme canning, extreme taxidermy, or extreme home remodeling? Well, instructables.com is challenging anyone and everyone to take an everyday task and take it to the extreme.
The prizes for this contest are definitely geared towards the extreme too: a GoPro Hero 2 HD video camera, a Goal Zero Nomad 7 Flexible Solar Panel, and a Spot Connect Personal Messenger, just to name a few.
Creativity and imagination are key components to this challenge, as the idea is to take any activity and make it more awesome. Build it bigger, do it faster, make it brighter, and generally get even more crazy and loud! Whether you choose to go the conventional method with extreme activities like sky diving and drag racing, or you want to make the ultimate three-story hammock out of discarded shoelaces, you can compete. They are looking not only for conventional "extreme" activities, but also for new and inventive categories.
Deadline for contest submissions is April 9, 2012 and is open to all residents of the US, Canada (excluding Quebec), UK and Australia. If you think you have the ultimate extreme activity, make sure you get it on film and visit www.instructables.com to sign up and submit your entry.
