Gloved Hand for Airplane control has the most engineering cooperating as a System, so I found it most impressive, and give it my vote.   I was impressed with the 'bend-sensor' affecting the RPM of the motor; I never saw one of those before.

 Overall, "gesture" controls have been on the drawing boards for at least 10 years or so, but I still haven't actually seen one fully characterized for real-use, (like in the movie, "Minority Report" from 2002).

I'm with Chuck. Gloved hand controlling airplane. Great hobbyist addition.

It looks like the race is heating up between the airplane and the MEMS telescope. Who do you think will win?

It's tough for me to vote against the gloved hand that controls the airplane. I could see that being adopted by hobbyists.

Yes, Jenn, it is another tough choice. I think readers are going to be surprised by ahe amazing variety of gadgets we've presented over the past year. They range from the wildly whimsical to the straight up practical.
