Al Linke has just thrown down the gauntlet by entering his DIY Magic Mirror in our Gadget Freak Design contest! Al’s prototype won the Tech Grand Prize in our 2008 DIY Halloween Contest, and the kit he’s developed is for sale now in Makers Market. It features a Sleeping-Beauty style floating, talking face in a gilt-framed mirror with an amazingly wide variety of integrated and integrable functions–even a breathalyzer!

The competition is heating up! Think you can do better? Enter here.
