  1. 1. The joystickit gadget was cool because it could be used for a lot of different types of games, it would improve my life because since i'm kinda old school sometimes and I think the arcade machine feel of it would be awesome.
    The grassy lawn charging station was cool because it could look cute in a house and it combines charging devices into one cool portable gadget. It would benefit me because I have a lot of ipod's and cell phones in my family and it gets to be a clutter sometimes.
    The radio portable xray machine was cool because you hold it over a body part and it's just a PORTABLE XRAY! I think this would be extremely beneficial in my life, mainly because i'm really REALLY clumsy and being able to have my own xray machine, WOW!

  2. The Casio Classic Calculator Watch is cool because it has a calculator on it. Look how many other watches have calculators on them? None. Zero. You always need a calculator now you have one on your watch!

    Portal Turret LED Flashlight w/ Sound is cool because its Portal. Everyone loves portal. "Don't make lemonade. Promethius was punished by the gods for giving the gift of knowledge to man. He was cast into the bowels of the earth and pecked by birds. Remember that. That's all I can say. Don't forget. It won't be enough. The answer is beneath us. Her name is Carolyn."

    Titanium straws are cool because they are just awesome. They are super ergonomic and looks amazing. They would benefit or improve my life in the longrun because they would overall be less expensive then tons of plastic straws.

    1. While I must agree with Tyler, I feel that he took the easy rout.

      While the Casio Classic Calculator Watch is very cool, I feel that the usb storage watch is a much cooler choice and more useful in today's society. It would benefit or improve my life by... what am I saying, I already have it and it's great! I never forget my usb on a desk or loose it.

      A Poral Turret LED Flashlight may be cool, but not nearly as nifty as the Portal 2 Potato OS kit . It not only is cool because it's a reference to an awesome game, it's also cool because I say it is. LOGIC! My life would be greatly improved by this product because it would boost my self esteem and make me feel a little less insignificant.

      Titanium straws suck! Cool people use titanium sporks! Cool because it never would break, improve my life by not forcing me to choose between fork or spoon.

  3. 1. The XM25 rifle is cool because it has a wide variety of ammunition to use in different situations. It would benefit me and others by giving soldiers more options to use in tactical situations.

    2. The Helo TC is cool because it is a helicopter you can fly from your iPhone. It would benedfit me because it's just plain fun. I love rc toys and wouldn't mind having one.

    3. The Digital Bolex Camera is cool because it allows people to film high quality movie fairly cheap. It would benefit me by allowing me to film a movie that is MUCH more high quality than the Flip camera that I have now.

  4. 1. the personal flying devise is cool because it allows a person to fly in a personal enclosed space that is also fast it would improve my life by allowing fast and cheep flight saving money and time.

    2. the radio personal x-ray machine is cool because it allows a safe accurate way to asses damage done to bones it would be beneficial in my life because if I got hurt it would allow me to ases the damage without having to schedule a vist to a larger X-ray machine

    3.the new one hundred dollar bill is cool because it is designed to be impossible to counterfeit I could use this in my life because it would remove the threat of accidentally ending up with a counterfeit bill

  5. 1. The phone with Windows on it. It's basically a portable computer with info at the tip of your hands. You have an advantage of downloading programs to a desktop and having documents on a desktop ready to go. It can help in the speeding of technology and further our progress in portable information.

    2. The robot car. It would be AWESOME to be able to control a robotic car with a touch screen controller. Even though I think it's only for fun it can help with the evolution in cars. It can help people learn to touch screen control things, then eventually cars, one problem the robot car uses military equipment which is a little impossible for me to get.

    3. A few days ago someone in my English mentioned SmartGlass. I can imagine SmartGlass as being very helpful. It causes less labor(read the news on the kitchen table) and drag files to a table to work on. It would help people have easier lives and it would be a big step to advanced technology.

  6. 1 Gadget iPad is cool because i has cool and fun apps, that could improve my school and home life experience it would benefit or improve my life because I would be able to use the internet on the go, with the screen size of a desktop or laptop

    2 Gadget The Army Pain Ray is cool because I could use it on criminals outside my home it would benefit or improve my life because I could have pain in the palm of my sound

    3 Gadget iPod joystick is cool because it allows me to use a physical joystick rather then the touch pad it would benefit or improve my life because i wouldn't dirty my screen as much

  7. Nissan Leaf is pretty cool because it doesn't have to use gasoline and can go around 100 miles without the need to charge. Not having to fill up on gasoline would help the world (although I don't know what the environmental cost of producing the batteries is) and it would remove the need to fill up once or more a week. Al you would have to do is plug it into your house.

    Not really a gadget but the Braille Typing App is a different way to type on phone keyboards. It takes a while to learn but is a different method to typing on a miniature qwerty keyboard. While everyone might be trained to use a computer keyboard I feel that phone keyboards have a lot of room for improvement. This might not be the best solution but it makes me glad to see people working to change and improve it.

    The final one would be the Acer A100 Tab. It is a small 7" tablet that is functional and not at the lowest level. I think it would be cool to have one just so I could learn a little bit more about how Android works without having to commit to a phone. The iPad is a bit to big for on the go in my opinion and this tablet's size makes it a better fit in that sense for me.

  8. 1) A video Swimmask is cool because you can take videos underwater which something you see very much. This would improve my life because I could take movies underwater and make really interesting movies.

    2) A Night Vision Mission Video Watch is so cool because you can see things at night and also record videos on the watch. I feel this would improve my daily activities because I could take videos and feel like I am spy.

    3) I think the staple free stapler is awesome because it staples without staples. My life would be improved by a long shot with this because I could staple papers without staples.

  10. 1. Senseg new screen technology: This technology allows the user to feel different textures on the display. This means that apps can tell the screen what texture it wants at any place on the screen. This means that keys on a keyboard would feel different then the text box or the mountains in that video game are rough and the valley is smooth. This is simply cool and would come in handy with tablets and smartphones.

    2. Aluminum iPad Keyboard Case: I do not like the iPad, mainly because it is unpractical to type on and requires a learning curve. Zagg saw this problem and made a keyboard for the iPad. This simply connects a full keyboard to an iPad via Bluetooth and allows the user to type with more ease.

    3.Soundlazer speaker: This is a little speaker that hooks up to a sound device and plays music in a very limited direction. This would allow the user to play music with laser precision. So the user could play music to them self and only them self without the need for headphones. I personally hate headphones and earbuds and would really like this product.

    2) Personal flying suit- the personal flying suit is an awesome ide who wouldnt like a flying suit it would benefit my life because i could get places faster

  12. 1:The new iPad that recently just came out it is really awesome and is the best tablet to date. It will help children with learning because of new features this iPad provides. It also has a new camera and faster processor so you can take pictures on a 5mp camera and quickly upload them and share them with others.

    2:resonate dj controller. This thing is amazing for aspiringDJ's. This will help Djs with ease for mixing. I myself Dj, so i know for a fact having plastic mixers and wires everywhere gets pretty annoying when your DJing. With this touch screen mixer you will be able to learn and have fun while playing music.

    3:portable kitchen concept. it is cool because it a all in one portable kitchen with all the utensils you need to cook with. It would guaranteed help people to are on camping trips and want to be able to cook some food while they are out in the wild.

It would improve my life by helping me beat my high score on packman.n The bacon scented air freshener is cool because it smells like delicious greasy bacon!!

    3. The bullet proof clipboard gadget is cool because it can come in use in a survival situation, it can improve teachers lives in case some student flips. i just like the fact that it is basically impenetrable.

  16. 1. The first gadget is the new iPad (iPad 3 technically). I think that this would be better because, it's the new iPad, has 4G, new and better display, and I would be glad to have the new one to replace my iPad 2 any day!

    2. A bluetooth caller ID watch. I think this would be cool to have for when people call you in class or when you are too lazy and you don't want to take out your phone in class and see who is calling.

    3. The iPhone fisheye lense. This would be awesome to have because everyone has their phone on them, and some people complain about the iPhone and how it's not the best Camera.

    3. The Nokia 808 is cool because it boasts a 41 megapixel camera and it would improve my life because my smartphone would have about 5 to 8 times more megapixels than anyone else's phone or camera.

  19. 1. Universal Wrist Charger is cool because If you have an iphone or product similar to it, and you have no where to plug in and charge when it is dying, then you can use that. It would be like carrying another battery on you for your devices.

    2. Joystick Gadget is pretty awesome too, it great for gaming and such.

    3. I would also use the Calculator Watch, things always involve numbers and math and it would be quick and easy to use.

  20. 1.The fitnect is rather extravagant. It would improve my life by shortening mornings. I could choose what I want to wear and see what goes together.

It’s connected wirelessly to the accompanying Sensor Pad and a remote control that allows it to reflect data of your current weight, body mass index (BMI), and any other general health state as well as historical records on your health.

    3. The Brain controlled prosthetic arm is cool because the arm relies on simple pneumatic pumps and valves, and a tank of compressed air to move, it would cost about ¼ the price of a traditional prosthetic limb to create.
