Jennifer, am not getting a clear picture about the contest, can you be more descriptive about the contest and what type of entries you are expecting.

Mydesign - sorry about that. I guess I was just resting on our Design News laurels here.

Products that entered the marketplace between Sept. 1, 2011 and Aug. 31, 2012 are eligible, as long as they fit into one of the 5 main categories/subcategories.

Keep in mind, we are not looking for end products, but the components used to make those end products. Hope that makes sense. Please feel free to email me or Lauren Muskett if you have further questions.

Jennifer, thanks for the clarification. Will you require the complete design and block diagram or an overall view with explanation of the system is enough.

@Mydesign - we require a highly detailed, written description (300 words or less) as well as 1 or 2 high-resolution images. The nomination form is fairly simple - it has a space to enter your description as well as two modules where you can upload your images.

Get a load of these strange product designs. What's in the water these design engineers are drinking?
The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
Ever wanted your own giant robot? Three engineers did, and now they want to make 15-ft, fighting MegaBots a household name.
Here are 10 examples of the wide range of new technology on display at Pack Expo in Chicago earlier this month.
For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
