Just to let you know, I have entered a year long, 4 stage competition.
This completion involves taking an electronic design from an original
idea through to a final product that works.
I have chosen to design a combined PDA and food weight scale to assist
people that have diabetes by logging and calculating the amount of
carbohydrates they eat by weighing the food and using a food nutrition
database on the PDA.
This is so they can accurately calculate the insulin dosage they need.
It is inspired by my son Ryan who as most of you know is Type-1 Diabetic.
I have successfully made it through to round 2 of the competition, now
I need your help.
In order to make it through rounds 2, 3 and 4, I need your help by
voting for my project.
In return for voting, rating projects and joining in on the forums and
blogs on the competitions website... you have a chance of winning

If the project makes it to the final round, it will be at a point that
it is ready to produce plus lots of publicity. This means it is very
possible that a company could put it into production which potentially
help millions of people world wide manage their diabetes more
Thank you for you help, and please pass this on to as many people as
