The mini catamaran make me want it to be summer again… I pick that one.

Is just the thing… stores easily yet you get to enjoy the open waters.

Electronic Drum Kit Shirt would be in second place. Its a nice gift idea, but I wouldn’t let my wife wear it in public.

Jason Says: October 10, 2008 at 3:13 pm

Well, it’s not technically a gadget, but it definitely is cool. The SMB3 HDD enclosure gets my vote this week. Those were the days…

Bulletproof Handkerchief!
Why didn’t James Bond have one of these?

my vote is for drumkit shirt, because drum set is hardest piece of music equipment to carry around :D

Bob Says: October 10, 2008 at 4:36 pm

I gotta go with the Catamaran. Now if they could just replace the deck with a solar powered LCD screen, I might be able to get my posterior off of the couch.
