Bobjengr, Henry Ford was a pretty good Gadget Freak himself -- a devoted hobbyist. Tesla as well. That's how it all starts.

GADGET FREAK OF THE YEAR

I have no idea as to how many marvelous concepts started out as mere "gadgets".   Designers, engineers, and "lay people" wanting to improve a situation or do serious "what-if" work that ultimately lead to devices, eventually commercialized, solving problems for millions.    This might be up for discussion, but one Mr. T. Edison was possibly the greatest gadget freak of all time.  I think Allied is to be commended for sponsoring such a great contest and I would hope they keep up the good work.

Given that all of the semi-finalists meet a high level of quality, the final winner will likely be the the gadget that meets either the cool factor or the "I could use this" factor.

I agree, Elizabeth, Andrew is in a good position. However, there is some real competition here. It's neck-to-neck right now.

Looks like a good one this year! i'll be interested to see who wins, though it seems Andrew Morris has a bit of a flying start and a good chance with three entries.
