This has always been one of my favorite sections of Design News.  I look forward to the new and whacky things people think up each and every issue.

 

Maybe one day something I think up will be here as well, but nothing I fiddle with is even remotely ready!

Fun to read all these gadgets. I'm too lost for fun stuf, but as something to be happy about: just completed development of a high temperature tilt senor that works at ove 210C in a continuous mode. It was great to see that it operated for over 3 weeks in a 210C oven 24/7.

Thank you. It may be a nice idea I'm not familiar with the procedure on how to do that. If you have any directions on how to do that, I would be glad to submit.
