Gadget Freak of the Year: Help Us Break a Tie Vote!

Gadget Freak of the Year: Help Us Break a Tie Vote!

Voting has closed on our 2015 Gadget Freak of the Year contest, but it is not game over yet for two competing projects.

I can tell you that the winning project (more on that to follow soon) ran away with more than 68% of the votes and our second-place project garnered more than 19% of the votes. They will win $6,000 and $2,000, courtesy of our sponsor, Allied Electronics, respectively.

That brings us to our third-place winner and the recipient of our second $2,000 prize. "The Handy Rival," an arcade game that allows an individual to play rock, paper, scissors against a robotic hand, and "The Portable Weather Station," a weather station equipped with multiple sensors for gauging temperature, wind speed, barometric pressure, and altitude, are locked up in even numbers.

So, we're opening up voting again and asking you, dear readers, to settle this once and for all. Watch the two videos below (placed in no particular order) and cast your vote for our third-place gadget.

Watch the following videos, click the name of the project to learn more about each gadget, and then cast your vote! We will tally up the votes and announce all the winners Dec. 7.
