Hey! Want to win a sweet GoPro HERO? And a just released racing quadcoptor kit from FliteTest? Read on. (Yeah, not phone controlled toy, we're talking about a joystick banging racing machine here.)

Over the past few month's of contests, we've highlighted new APIs, given a preview of beta APIs, partnered with other APIs - so what's the challenge this month? That's up to you, because this month anything goes!*

That's right, use some of our newer Verify or Number Insight APIs, or use our more lowlevel SMS or Voice APIs. Use some of our beta SDKs, or even our new Beta Number Insight APIs. This month it's up to you.

The best overall submission, in terms of best quality, and best us of Nexmo will get a GoPro and a racing quadcoptor to attach it to.

But since we're opening this up to all of the tools Nexmo offers, there's a special prize to the project that uses the most Nexmo products. If that's you, we'll send you an awfully slick swiss army knife (the cyber-tool version) and a copy of the Incredible Machine sequel Contraption Maker on Steam.

Want some extra credit for hacking? Post your Nexmo API key (not secret) in this thread to have some added.
