That was an awesome update to the classic bike. This one even got me over to the website of another fuel injection controller and found out I can fuel inject my Tempest for little money.

Besides, who doesn't like a good looking Harley?

The dishwasher indicator is really practical but.  The automated mailbox is cute--"Internet Cat Video" cute.  You can't compete with that!

I need to rank these.  They're all too awesome.

I like the dishwasher unloader. In my house, with up to six people using the dishwasher, I'm never sure if I'm loading dirty dishes in with clean dishes that never got removed. I end up pulling the dishes out to examine them to see if they're clean or dirty. I think this would solve that problem.

I liked the remotely controlled room temperature project. I guess it is the most useful of them all.

I voted for the temperature control because IMO, it's the most useful, but the motorcycle engine control is by far the coolest and required the most engineering talent.

And it is easy to build with tools I am likely to already own.

Welcome to Round 3 of our first-ever Gadget Freak of the Year contest! While one project in Round 1 and one project in Round 2 ran away with the vote, it looks like Round 3 will actually be a close one!

Amorris, I went for the motorcycloe engine control for the exact reason you stated. You can't underestimate "cool" as a consideratiion in the world of gadgets.

What prevents it turning on if its only half full of dirty dishes-? I would not want it turning ON every time I walked past – maybe it has internal sensors indicating amount of current load-level?

Mailbox Concept is a nice idea, but the current system showed a lot of opportunity for simplifying. Looks like the volume of space for Mail was competing with the system itself, partially filling up the box. Lots of batteries will become AC current in practice, no doubt.
