Try your hand at designing a military vehicle

Local Motors, in conjunction with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is hosting the Experimental Crowd-derived Combat-support Vehicle (XC2V) Design Challenge to rethink the development of military vehicles.

It is important to note that even though this is a militarily relevant vehicle, this is not an offensive fighting vehicle. The goal of this vehicle will be to transport items and/or people around quickly and efficiently in a potentially hostile but mobile environment.

The winning design will be developed into a working prototype. The winner will receive a cash prize and the opportunity to see his/her design turned into a functioning concept vehicle. The submission deadline for the contest is March 3, 2011 at 11:59 pm EST. More details are available at Local Motors.
