They put down the rules but doe not explain why there is such a test. I believe it is more for verification purpose.

Startled by official rules a bit. Why Canadians engineers are required to pass math test ? Is it because there are some doubts about their math education? Or it was intended to be for engineers in both US and Canada and organizers just gave up on US ?

@Interfacet - Sorry for the confusion on the deadline, it has in fact been updated to 11:59 PM on December 6th. If you could put an idea together before then, we look forward to seeing it!

Above the description says, "Deadline for submissions: December 6, 2010." Whereas the "Official Rules" .pdf states, " All Entries should be sent via email to eelife@ubm.com by _December 2, 2010. Entries will be accepted from 12:01 AM on November 19, 2010 through 11:59 PM on December 2, 2010 (the “Entry Period”)." It's too bad I missed I'm going to assume is the correct submission deadline - I concentrate on multi-touch/multimodal HMI more of my time than I spend sleeping. I can't wait this kind of UI to become ubiquitous.

Actually, to open the lock you must grasp the body using thumb and first fingers on the two narrow sides, each of which scans a fingerprint, and then slide the arrow across. It would be quite secure. The worst touch application I saw was a control for a burner on a stovetop. To shut off an boiling-over pan would require putting your finger into the stuff that had just bubbled out of the pan. CLEARLY that designer has never used a stove!
