While the Multitool-pen is great (I actually got one!), my vote definately goes to the mini-panzer.

Bonus points if you use pepperballs instead of normal paints 😉

The wireless power is incredible, it will just make gadgeting so much easier, especially when plug point or charger cannot be found!!

Andy Says: August 29, 2008 at 5:50 am

Wow, finally kill the power cords forever!

RGP Says: August 29, 2008 at 6:16 am

The tank is number one!!. I like to use one against my neighbor’s lawn mower tractor.

Jeff Says: August 29, 2008 at 6:46 am

Mini Panzer, all the way! If you’re going up against it, just be sure to have your fortifications in place before ze Germans get there.

Krysta Says: August 29, 2008 at 7:00 am

I’m not a big paintball player but the tank is something I think I could handle!

Nate Says: August 29, 2008 at 7:41 am

Definitely the pen all the way.

Tim Says: August 29, 2008 at 7:42 am

Definitely voting for the wireless power technology. Not having to plug my laptop into the wall would be a definite plus.

Sam Says: August 29, 2008 at 7:50 am

This would be great for powering up anywhere on the go
small and compact and easy to use.

Mike Constantine Says: August 29, 2008 at 8:42 am

You can beat power on the go.

Jason Says: August 29, 2008 at 10:11 am

Wireless power? This one is a gimme. Our children will laugh at how our gadgets had to be tethered to a power outlet.

Jerry Says: August 29, 2008 at 9:37 pm

Im going with the ipod robot =]

Jay Says: August 30, 2008 at 7:02 am

Paintball tank – awesome!

Clay Says: September 1, 2008 at 3:27 pm

You guys are crazy! Whats the big deal about the paintball tank when you could charge your cell phone 100 miles away with wireless energy!

Dipesh Says: October 8, 2008 at 8:42 am

according to me Ecobutton is more useful for us….. by which indirectly we can join the fight against the evil global warming and
also it is a small gadget with a small price tag that can make big changes to the environment and our bank balance!
