Ok. Sometimes you KNOW a product is a little too specific and a smidge too useless to warrant whipping out your credit card for. But sometimes the gizmo is just too much fun. You have to buy it.
Here are some of the most fun (and wacky) gadgets that you don’t necessarily need, but should absolutely splurge on:
Just think of all the inappropriate doodles that you could render in 3-D when you’re bored at work!
Speaking of work, don’t you just have to have a little R2-D2 unit to vacuum up your desk after you covered it in crumbs on your lunch break?
These are the biggest waste of money. DO IT.
If the two-wheeled hoverboard isn’t your style, why not buy a high-tech unicycle? No sense of balance required.
Feed your inner paranoia and empty out your piggy bank for a remotely operating locking system. You can let in your friends, check to see if you actually locked up when you left home, etc. It’s just cool enough to convince yourself that it’s useful and totally worth the money.
The term “instant digital camera” is slightly confusing, but the name Polaroid clears all that up. Take a selfie with your friends and print it out instantly… old school style. Yes; it’s a Polaroid printing camera for the age of the selfie. And you have to buy it right now.
Speaking of embarrassingly useless photography equipment: your furry friend absolutely needs this pet Go-Pro harness. They need to document their daily lives. The backyard, the irritating squirrel, the neighbor’s cat, etc.
If a remote-controlled locking system is secure enough for you, here’s a padlock that requires your fingerprint to open. Up to 10 people (including yourself) can store their fingerprints and open the lock, if you want.
Your cat poops in this robot and it cleans it up for you. Go on. Buy it.
