n900_pushFollowing the recent launch of Nokia’s PUSH N900 project in the USA couple of week ago, Nokia was inundated with "hundreds" of cool, innovative and wacky N900 hacks and mods, from all four corners of the globe.

After a hectic week of reviewing all of the amazing PUSH N900 MOD IN THE USA submissions, PUSH N900 had a total of three teams of finalists that will all receive funding, assistance and N900 devices for their hacks. Now the fun part has really started, they’re actually bringing their designs to life and compete for up to $10,000 in prizes.

So, without further ado, the three teams that will be presenting their PUSH N900 MOD IN THE USA hacks to the judging panel of industry experts at CTIA in Las Vegas are:

Niko the Robot – Niko the Robot pairs the Nokia N900 with Lego NXT building kit to create a robot that utilizes the Nokia N900 as its ‘brain.’ It will understand commands sent via Twitter to a specific handle, send feedback about the area around it as well as post pictures from the Nokia N900’s camera.

Pit Crew – This mod sets up the Nokia N900 to be the brains behind a slot car in order to compete against human competitors. Using Python code and algorithms, the Pit Crew thinks they can have a Nokia N900-controlled car beat a man-controlled car. Do you?

Bike Dashboard– This set up utilizes several different features of the Nokia N900. From the GPS to the camera, the team behind Bike Dashboard, BrettSarahTops, think they can turn the Nokia N900 into a car-like dashboard. Showing a speedometer, odometer, mapping your route with GPS and even providing a car horn – this app might have it all!

Congratulations guys! And thanks again to everyone who submitted their ideas, it was no easy feat in picking just three teams.

Stay tuned for more info on the new PUSH N900 MOD IN THE USA teams over the coming days.
