NO RATINGS
This vote has only two strong candidates, with due respect to the first two entries, but they don't compare to the final two.

The Oxygen Shock Tube is a very sophisticated and well-engineered device, presumably conceived and fabricated by a former weapons engineer; but it really would have been beneficial to have included a demonstration in the video.

The drink delivery vehicle is equally sophisticated & engineered, but has a better presentation because the team actually demonstrated the working device.  A seemingly simplified derivative of the Ground-Breaking 'Segue'; which only few years ago set the engineering community on fire with it's sophisticated balancing act.  To that end, this team of DDVIP design engineers created a very advanced piece of technology, in a garage environment, and I believe have bright futures ahead of them for their innovation tinkering skills ,,,,, but maybe could use a little help on maximizing their marketing vision to seek the best application for their gadget.  They got my vote.

Interesting footnote that both the cannon and the pendulum were loosely inspired by creative beer-drinkers; the cannon diameter was coincidentally "beer-can-diameter" per the inventor.  And yes, I saw the Mountain Dew cans on the pendulum, but you're not fooling anybody!
