Poll: Would You Apply for An "Experimenting with Ultrasonic Actuators" Design Challenge?

Earlier this year, I ran an "Experimenting with Vibration Sensors" Design Challenge. It was a great activity for the element14 community. The experimenters were really creative and produced some most interesting blogs from their ideas.

 

As I usually do after an activity, I meet with the sponsor(s) and brainstorm new ideas. In a recent meeting, piezoelectric transducers came up.

 

The piezoelectric transducer shown to me is actual an ultrasonic actuator. Basically, an electrical signal is applied to the device and it then generates ultrasonic waves. These kinds of transducers are used in cleaning equipment and treatment machines.

 

I writing this poll to gauge interest on this product. It's early in the planning process and we just wanted to see the baseline interest in experimenting with ultrasonic actuators.

 

I presume this would be done in a home shop, and you would need the equipment to experiment with it.
