FIRST PLACE: Wavelet – $7,996
Millions of Voices. Billions of Messages.
WAVELET combines the power of words with the uniqueness of a personalized gift by taking an audio message left by a customer and making the message’s waveform, or audio signature, into a three-dimensional bracelet. The end result is the ability of the customer to give their loved one a vocal message that can literally be worn on their wrist. Accompanying each and every bracelet is a plastic, I.D. sized display card showing the written message, the waveform, and a serial number. Each and every display card has the ability to be scanned by any QR code reader in order to directly pull up a link on the WAVELET website. There, the serial number can be entered in order to pull up the original sound file, and audibly hear their loved one’s message in addition to having the bracelet.

A regulation size pool table can vary from 7 to 9 feet in length. After the purchase of a table, conflicts often arise due to either the growth of the family or the need to repurpose the room. Lack of useful space is the main reason people decided to sell their pool tables at a loss of up to 90% of its value.
A prototype is being developed to reduce the footprint of the pool table by up to 75%. This will give the table a capability of vertically stowing itself in a discrete housing in case the additional space is needed. Along with its storage ability, the table will also have a self-stabilization feature that levels the slate-top to have a perfectly horizontal playing field. The design of this table will have both the look and the feel of a standard slate pool table.
