Do I need to own a Pronto to compete?
Absolutely not! Here's all that you'll require to participate in this competition:
  1. The ProntoProEdit PC software program. This includes a fully functional ProntoPro emulator with which to test your design. Since you can only incorporate learned signals if you currently own a Pronto, users without a remote should instead add a delay or jump (where appropriate) on each button, in order for their configuration to function correctly.
  2. A bitmap editing program. This could be anything from Microsoft Paint to Adobe Photoshop. Many designers also fashion their buttons in a vector-based program first, such as Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW.
  3. Your brain! Quite possibly the most important part! Be unique, be creative, be different!
