It was a very tight race in Round 3 of our annual Gadget Freak of the Year contest, sponsored by Allied Electronics, but one project came out on top, by the skin of its teeth, really, and will join the winner of Rounds 1 and 2, Al Linke and Thomas Byrne, in the final round.
Dick Bipes' Boat Lift Controller With Remote garnered the majority of the votes in Round 3. So, who will join Al, Thomas, and Dick in the final round, set to begin January 5? Watch the following four videos presented in the slideshow (and check out the related project) and then cast your vote. In two weeks, we will present the winners of each of the four rounds in a final showdown.
The winner will be named Gadget Freak of the Year, and will win a check for $6,000. Two runners-up will be awarded $2,000 each.
