I guess the tesla colis is not a good thing to have at an electronics trade show.

@Caleb: Your comments and emails will be as important as the stories themselves, so please don't hesitate to jump in and let me know what you think.

Ah ha! A cunning ploy -- inviting emails but not giving us an email address (LOL)

Hi Caleb

Great to read your post.. I am from India, based in Bangalore. Now I am going to look for innovations and stuff like that - not the FBs or the Googles but simple things that people ( who mayor may not be engineers) are struggling to come up with to make their working lives simpler, be it in agriculture or textile or leather or whatever.. but somewhere where some electronic stuff could be involved or some which would not have electronics embedded in them.

Am sure there would be some others ( the real-time engineers :) ) who would love to write to you and figure out some solutions for the problems they encounter.

I am not an engineer but I am an ordinary journalist who covers IT beat  in particular  but looks for human interest features in general -- and try to communicate things happening in India which are interesting to the global audience.

Maybe some ideas could help out some people - even if one person is able to add more value to his/her innovation, it would be great, I think

@Susan: My experiance is that Tesla Coils are about as welcome as a Jacob's Ladder when it comes to an environment in which EM noise not desired :-)

I guess we'll leave all the dangerous stuff to the professionals, like Caleb.

What??? That's a bit of a slap in the face. I R an Engineer, you know! I was blowing things up when Caleb was a kid blowing bubbles (and sometimes I even meant it to happen :-)

Welcome aboard, Caleb. I enjoyed our walking tour of San Francisco last night and look forward to touring your posts in the future. Do I need a crash helmut? ;-)

I would love to see what you find. I've generally only had a good peek into America and England.

Haha, yeah, I think maybe she meant un-professionals like Caleb. I'm sure pretty much any EE can build a better tesla coil than me, but I'm the guy who will put on a costume and run around in a crowd acting like an idiot with it.

Yeah, I'm still learning the system here. I guess I assumed my contact information would be readily available on the site (like in a profile linked to my name in the byline). I see now that it is not.  How are people supposed to contact me to share their projects? I'll have to remedy this.
