GET your thinking caps on! Here's your chance to win some serious gear.

All over Britain today PC World is launching Computer Show 2002 - an amazing in-store technology exhibition.

The show will turn its 104 stores nationwide into a showroom of the future where you can check out the fastest PCs, find out how to set up better networking, and get a good look at some of the best new gadgets and gizmos.

You'll see the latest gaming devices such as the Xbox or the new Bluetooth 'wireless' technology and all the newest PC and console equipment.

And to celebrate this futuristic spectacular, we've teamed up with PC World to offer kids the chance to tell us what they think will be the can't-live-without-it technology of the future - and win some great prizes in the process

Images or drawings to accompany ideas and really bring them to life are very welcome.

The wackier and crazier the ideas, the better, so this is an opportunity to have some fun and let your imaginations run wild. Over the next two weeks we will be judging the entries on behalf of PC World and will announce the winners soon. …
