I agree, Rob. The other three Gadget Freaks are all great, but it's hard to vote against a potential lifesaver.

I agree AnadY, the most practical gadget here is the call for assistance. It serves an important need. The other three gadgets have value and they're all impressive as homemade products, but the call of assistance was created to improve someone's life. That said, the crock pot was also developed to improve someone's life. The bike proves out the ability to manage fluids, and the camera is nothing but amazing in the creation of its own parts.

The number of entrants in the "brackets" is clearly secondary to quality and the attention that this kind of contest can bring to creative engineering thinking. Kudos to all who got this started.

Al, thanks, but the credit for the Gadget Freak of the Year idea goes to Rich Nass, Al Schmidt and Jennifer Campbell if I'm not mistaken.

Al, those brackets did come into our thinking when putting tis contest together. We had enough worthy entries, but alas, not enough time to statr with 64 (or is it 66 or 68 these days).

Rob, Great idea to run this contest. Maybe next year we can have brackets a la the NCAA Tournament. These gadgets deserve the most attention we can put on them.

Okay, now this is a difficult task. All these creations are freakish. That said, if I absolutely had to make a decision, this would be my least start from the least freakish to the absolute gadget freak in this group; A gadget's call for assistance, the analog camera from 3D parts, the programmable crock pot and Mr shock with his bike. But that's just me.
