Last week’s CGOTW prizes go to…


The top three in last week’s coolest gadget contest were as different as they come, we had the pointless, the pretty useful but the winner came in the form of fun, the 50′ Snowball Launcher (though it’s actually advertised as 80′ so that’s 30′ more fun).

This toy blaster makes and launches softball-sized snowballs up to 80′, allowing rapid, long-range assaults during neighborhood snowball confrontations. Simply place snow in the forming chamber and close the lid, and it packs three perfectly spherical snowballs. To blast your mark, place one snowball in the muzzle, aim the launcher, and pull back the slingshot mechanism. Because the blaster is powered by elastomers instead of batteries, it provides uninterrupted, fast-action play.

Congrats to S2999 for finding this gadget beauty.

USB Negative Scanner
In second place it was the useful entry, the USB Negative Scanner.

Turn all your old 35mm photos into 5 megapixel digital ones in seconds with this USB negative scanner. It will take old negatives or slides, so all of those embarrassing pictures of your mates can work their way onto Facebook after all.


GPS Bikini
Finally in third place we have the token bikini babe wearing, GPS Underwear.

This underwear set certainly boosts the confidence of the person wearing it, in addition to the fact that it has GPS support so that your position (as long as you’re wearing it) can be established at all times just in case you get abducted or worse. I think most (suspicious) husbands will probably get this for their wives with less than altruistic reasons behind the gift.


Thanks once again to everybody who took part and spent the time voting and commenting. As usual we have two $50 monetary thank you’s, and the randomly drawn winners are:

Draw for voting and commenting: Keri (keri_bear).

Draw for telling a friend: Justin (again, I think you know the routine).

Thanks again everybody and good luck with the next CGOTW contest on Friday.

Who wouldn’t want a pair of robot legs? Granted, you will look incredibly stupid wearing them and the seat looks as if it really jams up your butt, but come on! WE HAVE BIONIC ROBOT LEGS NOW. HELLO.
