This sounds great, mrdon - looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Please keep the "rules" in mind - we need a clear photo of the gadget, as well as a clear photo of you with the gadget. We also need a hi-resolution video, and some of the parts used in the gadget must be available through Allied Electronics, the sponsor of our Gadget Freak section. Please include the Allied part number and a link to the part on the Allied site.

Finally, we like to see projects that are unique to Design News. Of course, they can be published elsewhere after they appear on our site or in our magazine.

Thanks!

Hi, Chris.  Sorry for your frustration with links.  I get frustrated by broken links, too. My colleagues and I try to include complete links, so even if a page has moved, people can still go to the source and search for the information they seek.  Unfortunately, companies change information on their sites, companies go out of business or no longer stock parts, etc.  A while ago when Design News changed to a new "platform" for content, quite a bit of information about some Gadget Freak projects got lost during file transfers.

If you want something specific, let me know and I'll try to find a link that works.

Jon, KZ1G

Bad links Kills all enthusiasm

"You are not authorized to view this page. The Web server you are attempting to reach has a list of IP addresses that are not allowed to access the Web site, and the IP address of your browsing computer is on this list."

Links that get you this message just stops one in their tracks. Why look at other entries ?

Don't post links off your web site that you don't have control over. If Design News is not going to maintain the date on your site, just forget about posting the article.

Dead links make me just PASS on other articles that I might have been interested in, but don't want to investigate now because I am sure there will be other links that are now dead or not accessible.

I have tries from three different IP addresses, same massage. Case 167 has these bad links.

Disappointed,

Chris

"if we publish information about your device, you get a cool $500 to buy stuff for your home lab, put in savings, or use however you want"

Jon, cool and these offerings may flood your inbox with 'n number of design entries. Even I had start thinking in similar direction for one or two.

That's a shame. Nothing I work on is open-source. 

When I do though, this is the first place I'll post about it.

Yes, you must, Cabe.  The Gadget Freaks section gives people an opportunity to show off something they created so others can duplicate it, make modifications on their own, or find inspiration in it that leads to something new.  So in effect, it's an open-source project and we do need schematic diagrams, code listings, and other backup materials.

The first photos made with a 3D-printed telescope are here and they're not as fuzzy as you might expect. A team from the University of Sheffield beat NASA to the goal. The photos of the Moon were made with a reflecting telescope that cost the research team 100 to make (about $161 US).
At Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, Joe Wascow told Design News how Optimal Design prototyped a machine that captures the wing-beat of a duck.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
