The article focuses on the winners of a competition to design an electronic gadget, organized by the journal. The journal asked the readers to design a mains-fed power supply for a 3V ZigBee node. Paul Riley of the company Inovex was declared as the winner of the competition. Riley designed a 0.47μF capacitor which acts as an imaginary impedance and dissipates zero power. Chris Coffin of Cambridge-based Richmond Management Services was declared as the runner-up of the competition.
