There were a lot of decision makers, MyDesign. Adding up the votes in the semi-finals and the final face-off, it totals more than a thousand.

"this has great potential for commercial application. As I recall now, I think my mom had some kind of call button for my dad so she could tell him when she needed help. But she was pretty conscious and able to do that. A patient who is more critical couldn't"

Elizabeth, there many such requirements in health care domain especially with patient assistance/aid systems. So commercializing such designs can have a good potential for business

Who knows, Habib. Andrew's gadget will certainly get a lot of exposure when he takes it to the Pacific Design and Manufacturing show in Anaheim this February.

Congratulations Andrew. A very great gadget you have produced out there. I especially liked the part on how you could detect the gaps and modify it accordingly to the user's voice. I hope someone can invest further on this gadget and produce it on large scale.

Further kudos to Andrew for turning his talent away from warfare, and dedicating his skill to helping people in need.  His invention, ironically, may even help those maimed in war.

Indeed, as you say, Mydesign, this has great potential for commercial application. As I recall now, I think my mom had some kind of call button for my dad so she could tell him when she needed help. But she was pretty conscious and able to do that. A patient who is more critical couldn't. Again, kudos to this designer!

"A Gadget's Call for Assistance. He told Design News he created the gadget to help a specific person. "I designed this gadget because a woman had been referred to me whose husband had been paralyzed by a stroke. He was unable to call for help in an easily audible manner," Morris said. "This made it difficult for his live-in caregiver to get a good night's sleep. She had to sleep with 'one ear open.' This device solved her problem."

Andrew, congrats. Hope this will device will get productized and commercialize, so that many people's can use it at various instances, especially for medical aid.
