It's amazing in this country how many products/companies have started in people's garages, basements, kitchens, etc.

Hey, Mr.Don, we're always looking for new gadgets to feature in Gadget Freak. If you or any of your students have gadgets, we'd like to see them. Design News will pay $500 if we feature your gadget. We often feature student teams. Send me a note at rob.spiegel@ubm.com and I'll send along the Gadget Freak details.

These slide shows are awesome. As you pointed out, its amazing how today's Makers are quite clever in developing cool and innovative products using ordinary materials. One item I'm always discussing with my Electronic Engineering Tech students at ITT Tech is to venture into the land of creativity. There are so many cool tools to develop personal technology such as the Arduino, the Basic Stamp, LEGO NXT, and the Propeller, to name a few, that the only constraining factor is time. I'm currently working on some cool robotic controller gadget projects for a book I'm writing for Apress. I'm using microcontroller platforms such as the Arduino, LEGO NXT, and a bunch of discrete electronic parts along with my Motorola DroidX smartphone to create wireless controls for robots. BTW, I do like the robotic hand and the Kindle products as well.

Good slide show, Rob. As I've said previously, I think (and hope) the easier-to-use Kindle has a chance to become a commercial product, albeit a niche product.

What a wide range of gadgets in this slide show. My favorite is the robotic arm.

It's encouraging to see how many of these gadgets were developed by young gadget makers.
