Devotees of the Gadget Freak, here’s your last chance to put your engineering creativity to work and win money in the MAKE/Design News Gadget Freak Design Contest. The contest’s Grand Prize winner will receive $1,000 and a chance to sell their gadget in kit form in the Makers Market, with setup and monthly fees waived for six months.
The contest — sponsored by Alibre, Allied Electronics and Texas Instruments – requires that you create a gadget and document your build. Your gadget must incorporate electronic components and involve sensing, motion, timing and/or networking elements.

We’re entering the final week of the contest, so if you’re going to do it, this is the time.
