GetdatGadget Top 10 Gadgets – July 2014
It is time for the monthly GetdatGadget Top 10 Gadgets. We know, we know, we are late with the list this month as we are already more than half way through the first week of August. That is because the team here has been busy with our awesome new project. What is it? Well, we are not supposed to tell yet but since you are twisting our arms, it’s Whyrll. That’s it. You are not getting any more from us.
Meanwhile, lets get back to our Top 10 list. We see some of our perennial favorites are still hogging the top 10. Let’s get those out of the way before we proceed to the newcomers for the list.
A total of 5 gadgets from last month’s list retain their Top 10 ranking in July. They are, in no particular order:
- Looq Extended Selfie Arm
- Extendable Handheld Selfie Stick
- GabbaGoods Selfie Camera Remote Shutter
- AeroBed PakMat with Hand Pump
- Batman Batarang Style Pocket Knife
Let us move on now to the newcomers, again in no particular order.
The Flux Capacitor Car Charger started out as an April Fool joke product for ThinkGeek but you never joke with Back to the Future fans. The response for the product was so great, ThinkGeek had no choice but to make it a real product. Now all of us (yes, that includes all you non-DeLorean owners) can now have our very own Flux Capacitors in our cars.
The Kootek Bluetooth Remote is the selfie addict’s best friend. Now you can mount your camera on a tripod or a selfie stick and use this handy shutter remote for snapping your selfies. No more relying on the self timer or unreliable audio activated (or *shudder* smile activated) shutter activation. This remote uses Bluetooth and it works with both iOS and Android devices.
With the PowerCube Power Strip you no longer have to worry about hiding your power strip from sight. This power strip looks so cool and stylish, you will want to have it sitting on your desk in plain sight. The PowerCube comes with 4 AC sockets, 2 USB power sockets and a 5 foot long extension cord. If you really want to, you can mount it under the table with the included mounting bracket.
The Magic Showerhead Automatic Garden Shower is the perfect add-on for your pool or the most fun your kids can have on your lawn on a hot summer day. The garden shower platform requires no electricity. Just attach your garden hose, step on the platform and you will be surrounded by water jets to that spray from 6 to 13 feet high.
The iKey Smart Key Button is an actual extra physical button that you can add to your Android smartphone via the headphone jack. Yes despite its “i” moniker, the iKey only works with Android phones with the help of an app. You can program the iKey button to do just about anything from starting an app, switching on the flashlight, turning on audio recording, switching the phone to silent mode, start playing music and much more. You can also use a combination of short and long presses to activate different functions.
