You're right about that, Chuck! I am about to spend all my money on buying a house, so if I had half a clever mind to invent stuff (and didn't work for Design News, of course), I would enter the contest myself. ;) I love seeing all of the innovative designs people come up with each year. The increased prize money should up the quality of the contest as well!
I love the time span. One can easily make a complete gadget till Oct and participate in the competition with a winning chance. Moreover people with their completed gadgets could add more features to their products to give them a fighting chance. I am really looking forward to some innovative projects on Design News in the upcoming period. Good Luck everyone.
