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.

Latest Analysis
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
