Interested in participating in the contest?

I was definitely interested though I was not sure if I had any chances of winning the contest. The first step is the purchase of the kit. The cheapest kit available was the EFM8 Universal Bee kit(shown in the picture below). It costs USD 30 and according to the documentation, this microcontroller is USB capable. I will let you know how my experiment goes..
