We've had some amazing projects featured on element14 in 2012. For this category, we've highlighted three projects that have stood out to us - the QiPi, harnessing the power of the Pi with batteries, the PiWriter aka the world's heaviest notebook and MEGA_Stick (which was bound to be good with a name like that). But you aren’t limited to just our three choices. If there is another project that you liked this year, then vote on the 'Other' category and write the project name in the comments box.

The electronics industry is the epitome of change. What is considered revolutionary one year, is commonplace the next. We've picked five technologies which stood out in 2012. So, which technology do you think has the legs to last?
'Legend' is a word often used too much, but in the case of our element14 Legend award it is entirely appropriate. We’ve chosen five titans of the electronics world. But who is the biggest legend in your eyes?
Tesla with his pioneering work on AC current? Edison and his development of the lightbulb? Faraday and electromagnetic induction? Ampère and electromagnetism? Or Teal and the first silicon transistor?
