A great toys for blogger like us who vulnerable to stress and work in front of computer everyday. Now, you can hit and crash your monitor like the picture above when you get mad.

Stealth Switch

USB Stealth Switch

Chances are you’re reading this while you’re at work instead of entering those 982 macros into an Excel spreadsheet like you’re supposed to. What do you do when your boss walks past? This desktop cloaking device instantly hides applications of a dubious nature just at the press of a covert foot switch. Your offending browser/application isn’t just minimised but is completely hidden from view. Save your job and that eBay bid at the same time!

Radio controlled drinks and snack holder

Summer is all about having fun and relaxing and this is the ultimate in lazy gadgets. You can sack the butler and hang out with one of these instead.

Portable Pocket Shower

The seasonal feature of our planet earth doesn’t allow us enjoy rains throughout. Also, the thought of very existence of a portable bathroom seems a remote possibility. But your desire to enjoy the shower can be fulfilled. Popularly known as signature American Sea to Summit, the pocket shower comes in a form of a backpack. Designed and developed using sturdy plastic, a dispenser comes equipped at its one end facilitating the fall of water.

Working Jet Pack

This has got to be the coolest toy ever, a fully functional (and safe) Jet Pack, I want, no, I need one of these.

The full post can be found on CG.


RC Dust Mop

New on Evil Mad Scientist is an easy DIY project that makes cleaning fun and might get your layabout kids involved in a little home maintenance. If you follow the link through to the labs then you will see how simple it is. An unprinted circuit board is attached to an inexpensive RC car and used to mount a dust mop. Then all that remains is awesome RC cleaning fun.

I know how I’m going to pay for the ‘jet’ pack – I’ll use it to fly around the neighborhood and retrieve all the frisbees stuck on roofs! :-]

Juergen Says: August 1, 2008 at 5:55 am

The pizza scissors, definately. Best thing since sliced… well… pizza, really 😉

Sam Says: August 1, 2008 at 6:02 am

The USB Switch gadget – if only I had one of these.
Like the fact that it completelt hides the offending site.

Nice Touch

Eric Says: August 1, 2008 at 6:03 am

I want the RC dust mop! I have hardwood floors and an 80lb yellow lab. I need to sweep everyday!

Robert Says: August 1, 2008 at 6:12 am

Imagine 1 million people using a jet pack ! (all at the same time in one location). Funniest Home video.

Andy Says: August 1, 2008 at 6:55 am

As cool as a jet pack would be – the fun of flying around like James Bond is insignificant to cutting pizza slices with scissors!

Krysta Says: August 1, 2008 at 7:28 am

Are you serious? Go RC Dust Mop! With this lovely gem it might actually get my husband to help clean around the house. Good thing the car isn’t colored pink…

Ian Says: August 1, 2008 at 9:12 am

Its about time they made a working jet pack. Jeez.

Debbie Says: August 1, 2008 at 9:18 am

Due to gas prices I could really use this to get to work and back….

What a cool toy

Al Says: August 1, 2008 at 9:23 am

@Jen: The aim of the contest is to find the coolest of the cool, we welcome, as you put it, “run of the mill gadget” but won’t turn an entry down for being too cool, thus having an unfair advantage, beside CG hasn’t won one yet 🙂 . We also try not to be sizest, cool gadgets come in all shapes and sizes and the jet pack is darn small compared to a 103″ plasma screen (which is also a gadget IMHO). Stepping off my soap box now 🙂

@Ross, well said, we wish you the very best of luck in the draw good sir

Kate Sheehy Says: August 1, 2008 at 10:03 am

can there be any doubt- we have waited since James Bond lifted off for our personal jet packs.

I’ll be on the look out for mine.

Jabberwock Says: August 1, 2008 at 10:58 am

How a jetpack can be better than a RC snack holder? I do not want to have to fly to my food – let it come to me!

Mike Constantine Says: August 1, 2008 at 11:06 am

I think that shower thing is a good idea. I could see using that at some music fests or long weekend/beach getaways.

Ken Scott Says: August 1, 2008 at 11:22 am

Oh, you gotta go with jet pack! Everything else is just cheese in comparison. What other gadget instantly makes you the envy of everyone who sees it?

SUMMER DAVIS Says: August 1, 2008 at 11:18 pm

Pizza Scissors
Pizza lovers rejoice – WHY? Because you get pizza and try to get a piece and you loose half your toppings and everyones nasty fingers on other pieces. With the scissors – it solves all the above solutions!

Matt Says: August 2, 2008 at 1:05 pm

The Pizza Scissors are the bomb! Perfect combo of a spatula and scissors, solves all the problems at once. Very simple design and very practical. The best gadget for sure.

Heather Says: August 2, 2008 at 3:08 pm

How can you not love a RC car that also cleans the floor!!! Plus, I’m sure it would be fun to use to play with our pets.

Jerry Says: August 2, 2008 at 3:29 pm

jet pack all the way!

Dom Says: August 2, 2008 at 5:54 pm

Jetpack (voted) and pizza scissors tied!
Jetpack – you can fly around! Beat traffic, be the envy of everyone!
Pizza Scissors – quick convenient way to get that delicious pizza into manageable slices.

Sam Says: August 3, 2008 at 5:50 am

who wouldn’t want there own jet pack. Although the price of gas would be so much worse than it is with a car.

Clay Says: August 3, 2008 at 9:18 am

Man! That desktop destroyer is great for reducing stress. Only downside is if you had a slow computer that didn’t work with the destroyer! That would get you twice as stressed! (Man I want the sansa fuze)

Matt Says: August 3, 2008 at 3:03 pm

The Stealth Switch does it for me this week. I’d probably modify it, though, so I could slip it under the carpet outside my office. That’d save me having to be alert enough to work the foot switch by the time someone knocks at my door.

RowanFalar Says: August 4, 2008 at 7:47 am

I think that the jet pack is the coolest thing. It reminds me of the “travelling in th future!” movie shorts shown in the movie theatre in the 1950’s. I know my hubby would love to have one.

Ms. Obal Says: August 4, 2008 at 9:24 pm

The Pizza Scissors are absolutely cool!!!!! These are the epitome of form and function. I really love this idea. I will be checking these out more closely and I will be adding these to my gadget folder wishlist. This gadget defintely rocks!!!!

Al Says: August 5, 2008 at 7:54 am
