Allow me to introduce myself - after nearly 20 years as an electrical engineer, I suffered two horrible blows last year - literally and figuratively. First, I was hit by a bus and second, my position at a premier semiconductor company was outsourced to penguins in Antarctica. While physically I am in one piece, the bus accident has traumatized me. Symptoms include gadgetary hallucinations and horrid lapses in vocabulary. So I've decided to travel the U.S. looking for new gadgets (hellooo Mid America! Like engineers, farmers are a great source of ingenious gadgets). M-I-C…K-E-Y. Just call me The Gadgeteer (someone should tell the bus company whose bus hit me, there's a gadget called brakes!)
And now I'm blogging about it - about the newest gadgets out there, having discussions about past gadgets and even opening it up to all of you to talk about what interests you and perhaps find the newest Gadget Freak. If you have an idea and think it would make a great gadget for the Design News audience, tell us. We'd love to hear from you!
Whether you're a designer, gamer, or just like to have a busy desktop, two monitors (or TVs) is always better than one. Gadget Freak shows you how to build an entertainment center that can hold two 70-inch TVs.
