Amazing Gadgets

November 5, 2008


I found some photos of really cool gadgets. Gadgets amaze me because they are so organized. I just love organization. Some of these gadgets are kind of neat and are definitely innovative.

Not much room in your living room? Buy stackable furniture! I could have used this when I lived in my tiny apartment…

This is neat, too. I wonder how fresh it keeps the food? It would keep flies away.

In the “olden” days, there was a similar kind of invention– it was half-dome of wire screening with a cabinet handle on top. It fit perfectly over plates and bowls. I’d like to find some. Come to think of it, they probably wouldn’t be too hard to build.

I did a quick search and found a very large one, only $5!


How about this next gadget, can you tell what it is? It’s a robotic gutter cleaner! It can rake through a 60-foot stretch of gutter in ten minutes.


I’m not much of a toast person, and I hate cleaning the toaster. How about something like this? Hmm, come to think of it, where would all the crumbs go? Probably right onto the counter as the toast slides through the roller. And how fast would this gadget toast the bread? Because by the time the end of the slice was toasted, the beginning side of the slice would be cold already. What do you think?


Here’s another toaster. This gadget is cool-looking, but it would be IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean! I think for a gadget to be realy useful, it also has to be practical. But it’s an interesting conversation piece, it looks like something you’d bring home from one of the gift shops after one of the Disney vacations.


This I LOVE. I sometimes use a vinyl tablecloth, and hot pots placed on it burn the plastic. Pot holders are so tacky. These are neat!

I also love these. I don’t like those kind of backless slippers, but I love the light on them. This is a terrific idea for slippers! No more tripping over those nasty little Legos all over the floor!

These are cell phone holders. I love organization. These are cool!

And finally, this is a really neat gadget that I saw at a store and bought. I love it!! It makes any lamp a touch lamp. Since I use a lamp in the bathroom (no electricity in there yet), I have one of these Touch&Glow things set up. You lightly touch the gold disk and the light turns on. No fumbling with the lamp switch with wet hands or in the dark.

EDIT: So many people have been asking where to find these gadgets! I wish I knew exactly– I got some of these photos from another website,  and he said they were from Germany. I did try to link to the gadgets I knew about (see the paragraph above this one for links to those sites). As for the cell phone holders, one person told me they found them on eBay. A search for “cell phone holders” might give you some success.
