Yes, it is a cool book. You can be a Gadget Freak by submitting photos of the gadget, a schematic, a parts list (spec'd from the Allied Website), a short video of the gadget in action (think YouTube), and build instructions. They can be submitted to rob.spiegel@ubm.com

Please submit. If we use your gadget, we'll pay you $500.

Turning the pages in the e-book using the arrow key and sound effects for turning pages is cool (its the simple things that get me going!)

I didn't see it on the site (maybe I missed it); is there an area or form a would-be inventor can submit his/her design for consideration in the book?

The interactive features in this book make it a must see! The description, build instructions, and parts list are all in one area making it easy to build your own gadget. Being from a windy area with wind farms makes the wind generator one of my favorite gadgets.

It was really difficult to choose which Gadget Freak projects to include in this e-book, as every one that is submitted to Design News is fun, useful and unique in its own right. In the end, it came down to the vivid photography. I encourage all you backyard inventors to try these out and to come up with some cool projects of your own. Did you know Design News will give you $500 if we publish your project online or in print? That's sure to buy a lot of new parts to tinker with! Send your projects to Senior Editor Rob Spiegel.
