Our friends over at Make Magazine are part of an awesome contest/promotion right now:

The Cylons were created by the people of the Twelve Colonies.
Intelligent robots, they were used as slaves and soldiers to fight humanity’s wars. But the Cylons became sentient and they rebelled. Man and machine fought to a bloody stalemate, then the Cylons withdrew to a remote region of space. A truce between the Twelve Colonies and the
Cylons lasted for 40 tense and silent years. Then, on the 40th anniversary, a stunning blonde – a Cylon in human form – met the human envoy … moments before the Cylons vaporized the station and launched a genocidal attack on the Twelve Colonies.

Now DVICE, SCIFI.COM and MAKE are giving you the opportunity to create (or re-create) the Cylons for fun, a chance to win prizes, and the possibility of seeing your creation on the Sci Fi Channel.

This is cool in so many ways, and I can’t wait to see what people come up with.  And I’d love to know if any GeekDad readers get involved.  If you do, and you post pictures do Flickr of your project, please send them to the GeekDad Flickr group, and we’ll see about posting them here on the blog.  Good luck to all the participants.
