The Handy Makes Hard Jobs Easier

Spot Industries spokesperson So Soon Dun states “Handy could be useful for any number of domestic tasks such as washing, hammering, painting, digging, kneading, the only limit is your imagination.” He went on to mention that “Handy has a very, very firm but soft grip and its ability to oscillate up and down at select speeds is quite satisfying.”

R/C Dead Fred zombie

Halloween comes a little bit early with the remote-controlled Dead Fred. This 4-foot long realistic looking zombie is powered by a quartet of DC motors and two 12-volt batteries, allowing it to groan, scream and talk in full digital audio thanks to an onboard amplifier and speaker (complete with trailing entrails).

Pretty good concept here. A new alternative to video monitoring.

Robot hands down!

The Handy, Hands Free has never been this good. With it’s firm yet soft grip and ability to oscilate up and down at various speeds, it’s the perfect gadget for all your cyber needs.

Deluxe Dry Jet Massagers. Who doesn’t want to be pampered without even getting wet?

Robert Olague Says: August 9, 2008 at 12:23 am

The Rovio is so cool I’ll make up reasons to get one. So many possibilities.

The Handy was second but I could only think of one use. Shaking spray paint cans 😉

Linda Says: August 9, 2008 at 6:01 am

The Rovio, but this was a hard choice. The Handy and the Jet massager would be great too.

i-Knock IM Notifier won my vote with the custom “ring tones.”

Jerry Says: August 9, 2008 at 4:19 pm

chykin Says: August 10, 2008 at 6:42 am

I voted for the cell phone camera thing. It seems like a awesome idea. I wish I had one.

Dom Says: August 10, 2008 at 6:48 am

Deluxe Dry Jet Massager – One thing that everyone enjoys is relaxation. What better way to do this than with the deluxe dry jet massager?!

Krysta Says: August 10, 2008 at 8:31 am

If i only had the i_Knock IM Notifier I wouldn’t have to worry about missing chats…not to mention it’s a cute little decoration for my desk.

Clay Says: August 10, 2008 at 5:20 pm

Wow! The telephoto would be the coolest because you can take great photography without having to lug around a digital camera. Always be ready!

Jessica Says: August 10, 2008 at 5:21 pm

I need the robotic arm (=

Jason Says: August 11, 2008 at 9:20 am

Wi-Fi Robot? That’s so sweet. RF is so close to being out the door on this type stuff.

Drew Says: August 11, 2008 at 2:47 pm

The Rovio gets my vote. As others have said, it could be good for checking on your house while vacationing. I would have picked the jet massager, but then I got to thinking about my LAST month power bill…=(

joey Says: August 11, 2008 at 9:40 pm

The Wi-Fi robot is the best. Having that would make me feel like I’m in a movie.
