Thanks for the kind comments; I wish I had read this before I decided to switch the video for the final submission. By the way the accent is Kiwi; thirty plus years of living in New Zealand will do that to you :) Layout

I don't feel my voice would be a plus on my jmSCAG video. Suggestion: listen to your favorite music while viewing the video. jmer

Hopefully, jmSCAG will add audio to the video so that they can more effectively compete with his/her counterparts. I agree with Jim about Layout's video. The narrative is clear and pleasant. The accent and humble learner's attitude lend a didactic quality to the video. The robot clock is delightful and an excellent teaching tool. It would be neat to edit the video further with lines/names of the components. I think Jim's evaluation of whether or not a device is truly utilitarian is a good idea since (as we've witnessed with Apple products) consumer design and highly capable technical requirements are both required for a successful product.
