Do you have what it takes to be the next Gadget Freak? SUBMIT YOUR PROJECT AND YOU COULD WIN $500 from Design News and Allied Electronics!
Design News and Allied Electronics are looking for the coolest DIY electronics projects in the world. Have you built a better mousetrap? Improved upon an existing device? Or even created a whole-new solution to an everyday problem? Then we want to hear from you! Share your creativity and your inventions with the Design News community.
If your project is selected, you'll receive a $500 check and your gadget will be featured in an upcoming print issue of Design News magazine and on Designnews.com with your invention.
Projects must be original to the creator. All entries must include:
- A detailed description of how your gadget works (feel free to share backstory and what inspired you to make it!)
- A full parts list
- High-resolution (300dpi) images of your project and its build steps
- A short video demonstrating the gadget (you may submit a video or an embeddable link from YouTube, Vimeo, or other video sharing site).
All accepted Gadget Freak projects become eligible for the Gadget Freak of the Year award.
The winner will get a check for $6,000 and a free trip to our award ceremony at the Pacific Design & Manufacturing event in Anaheim in February 2016, and two runners-up will each get $2,000, for a total of $10,000 in prize money!

It's good to freak out!
