I really like this concept and I am thinking of trying it myself but I was wondering if "Version 2" is going to be upcoming or was version 1 the end of the line... great work and very well done, this is what made me join the site! Thanks

Good question! I always did think that there would be a version 2, which would be built on the improvements discovered from the community after I released version 1. But it wouldn't necessarily be me that made it! I'd really love to see what other people come up with in the potato-chip-can-turbine genre!

Thanks for all the support, everyone! I didn't get the win, but the voting definitely helped push me up the rankings. Check out the judging formula here. Based on that, I got the maximum possible boost from the forum voting that I could. Thanks again!

Mike, per usual, your design is refined, and utilitarian. I am particularly impressed with the implementation of the paper towel rack and CDs- extending these items' lifecycles. bravo. yarch! Ben

Woo! Pretty amazing to get nominated for this. I'm really stoked.

When I submitted my entry, I wrote that, if I won, I'd donate the cutter to my graduate school program, the inimitable Design and Technology Department at Parsons, which is where I developed the turbine for my Major Studio final project. We've been dying to get one of these for a long time, and it would help us create a LOT more cool projects.

Thanks for stopping by!
