Congratulations to 1.21 Jigawatts winners of the 2011 Red Bull Challenge and FOUR 40w Full Spectrum Laser Cutters (one for each member of the winning team):


At approximately 6:15pm EDT, the moment all the blood and sweat had led up to took form; the announcement of which team would inherit the grand prize. This year, the team that floored the judges and deemed themselves worthy of Red Bull Creation's crown was Minneapolis' 1.21 Jigawatts.

To paraphrase what 1.21 Jigawatts created may be an injustice, (it truly needed to be seen to be believed), but here goes: A massive hamster wheel, wired into a mobile network, given its own phone number that could somehow receive up to 60,000 one-word text messages at a time. The kicker: once it received the text message, the hamster wheel would actually roll and perfectly print the word out along the ground. Remember, this was built in 72 hours. Its practical purpose? To be an unequivocally awesome showstopper -- and at that 1.21 Jigawatts definitely succeeded. Not only was their team awarded with a grand prize of $5,000, but also received four 40W Hobby Laser Cutters from Full Spectrum Laser. That's right; Christmas came early for the gents of 1.21 Jigawatts.
