That includes applications like Facebook, Groupon, Evernote and Box.Net. And gadgets like the iPad, Android and Playbook.
Your idea might be something that works with or on those things. Or it might be a game changer that brings something brand new to the scene. Whatever it is, we want to hear about it.What you get.
Up to $18,000 to cover time and expenses while you work on the idea.

Business plan that outlines how you’ll bring your idea to market.
Working prototype of the design/technology to prove it can work.
