Sorry about the repost, It was brought to my attention that I had used the wrong date on my former post. This raffle is still valid for all entries, the raffle will take place on January 14th of 2008.

I am doing a research project on software and robotics. This project is being funded by the university I attend in Boston MA. The information collected from this survey will help in my research, this information will be kept confidential and not distributed.

After you complete this survey you will be entered into a raffle for a prize from HiTechnic.

1 raffle prize of the winners choice will be provided after the survey ends January 14th 2008.
Prizes Include:
-NXT Prototyping Sensor Kit
-NXT Gyro
-NXT IRSeeker
-NXT Compass Sensor
-NXT Acceleration/Tilt Sensor

* Rules: To participate in the drawing your screen name must be registered before December 14th 2007, the date prior to the posting of this survey. So you cannot create 5 accounts and submit 5 survey responses. Only 1 response per registered forum account is allowed. The Drawing will be held on January 14th 2008, the winners username will be announced via the forum and contacted via email for shipping information.

Take the Survey!!!

I promised to keep everyones information private, so I cannot tell you who won. The winner has been notified via email, I will ask him if he wants to post that he won and what he is getting as a prize.

I would like to thank everyone for their effort in participating. If anyone is interested I can share the results of the survey.
