This year's Design Show attendees are going "back to school" during the
Gadget Freak Workshop running in the Design News booth (#2811). Those attendees
who complete a four-task challenge using relays and switches will receive a
bobble-head doll of the Freak himself. We have any tools, wire, and instruments
you need, so stop by the booth to reserve a time to sit down and freakout.
You can also vote on the Gadget Freak of the year with one voter coming away
with a $500 prize courtesy of Gadget Freak sponsor Allied Electronics.Go to http://www.dnsurvey.com and vote today!
