A.saji, I agree that gadgets are catching on. This is particularly true with kids. Between Lego MindStorms and Adruino, kids are becoming gadget freaks.

@Pubudu: Great thought but still you have to be wise here. Waste management have to be properly taken care of. If not it will be an utter waste in the end.

Jacob Hartman's project, 'Gloved hand controls airplane's flight' seems to be the most advanced in terms of technology out of the list of the final four contenders for the Gadget freak of the year. That said, am sure that aviation authorities will have a lot to say before this gadget eventually finds commercial application and this, to some extent, reduces its practicability.

This year's finalists for the Gadget Freak of the Year definitely deserve to be there and even though I have not followed the progress this year as much as I would have loved to, it looks like Andrew Morris has all but bagged this one, especially with 'A gadget's call for assistance' which is, in my view, very practical innovation and one that could easily trickle down to the masses

@Rob: True and I feel the gadget concept is rising again. It has started to capture the eyes of most of the people these days and they relate to different industries altogether.
