Looks like someone got a call for assistance!  I don't know if there is a chance of catching up now but it doesn't hurt to dream.  When is all of the voting over?  I guess not enough people want the 10 keys to better living!

I figured that if I won the final round, I would have to build another groan detector to show off at the trade show, as I have already delivered it to the lady I built it for. That was a concern to me, but I just got an email from her that she wants another one, whether I win the contest or not. She has become so dependent on it that if it breaks, or something happens to it, that she would be lost without it. Apparently, she finds it useful.

That's great, Nancy. We'd love to see the gadget. Plus, Design News pays $500 for each gadget. It's not much considering the work involved, but fame is part of the deal, so that helps.

Rob, it is now officially on the list for our next family project. We will begin brainstorming what to do over Thanksgiving break. We are having some college students over for Thanksgiving dinner - maybe i can get them involved as well.

Maybe you ought to build your own gadget, Nancy. We're always looking for more Gadget Freaks. They're hard to come by.

Seeing these projects makes me want to build my own gadget...hopefully it has that effect on budding young engineers. It is tough to choose!

I think you nailed it, Habib. Ultimately, if people vote for what they can most relate to, that's a fair criteria given that all of the projects are technically worthy. Given that all of the pass the quality test, the winner will be the one that pleases the greatest number of voters.

241 and 242 are neck-and-neck, 78RPM. I'd have a hard time choosing between the two. There's a good chance one of them will end up the winner. So, tell all your friends to vote.

I agree, Nancy. I am always in awe of what people come up with, being someone only with writing and journalistic skills and not any actual technical skills to do any of the things I write about. I really admire people who can design innovate like this, especially just because they want to and not because it's for a particular job they're doing.
