So, Altoids aren't just for your breath any more, huh? I think you should have a column for what we can design into an Altoids box. That would be fun. I can see it now, "Engineers design first home generator in an Altoid box. Altoid stock rises fast!"

I wanted to ask that, but you beat me to it.  Some typos just yield wonderful results.

Who makes eternal sensors?  Is Android the only system that can talk to them?

Charles, you're right on the mark! The LEGO NXT has wealth of free programning tools like NXC (NXT Not Quite C) and Python. The traditional programming tools like LabView, VB, and Visual C allow rapid prototyping of a variety of cool and innovative gadgets only limited by one's imagination.

Lego Mindstorms should be a great tool for building these gadgets, too.

Great. We're always looking for new gadgets, especially now that we're switched from a twice-a-month frequency to a weekly frequency.

Very nice slide show. My favorite has to be the kindle, just for the purpose alone.
