A Blast Through the Recent Gadget Freak Past

Gadget Freak e-book is an attractive display that is full of fun.

Now here's wacky treat -- the just-off-the-electronic-presses Gadget Freak e-book, put together by the Design News editors.

We hand-picked your favorite Gadget Freak cases from over the years, and brought them together in a dynamic digital edition. Download and check it out; not only the best gadgets, but accompanying videos, too!

You'll see William Grill a safe distance away from his rocket now that he has a wireless rocket launcher, and the Colorado State students who created a glove that assists with the keyboard. The Interactive Beer Pong Table is drunkenly good, too.

Another treat is Rick Crammond's Tesla blender that is powered by a water hose. Or the robot that reads the terrain and makes adjustments on the go.

One thing that really pops out from this collection is the stunning (and goofy) photography.

And most of all, readers get all of the tools to build these gadgets -- the BOM, build instructions, the schematic, and a video showing the craziness in action.
