Who doesn’t want a Rube Goldberg-style gadget that makes your breakfast every morning? Think about the time you’d save when you’re on the go.
If only you could point this bad boy at people to make them say what’s really on their minds.
With a simple click, the neuralyzer could take back something regrettable you said or did in public. If only we could take back those awkward years in middle school.
It’s pretty self-explanatory why you would want a jet pack. Basically, it’s a jet pack.
We’ve seen what 3D printers can do, but we’re still holding out for this gadget.
Everyone’s had those moments they wish they could fast-forward and rewind. If only we had universal remotes like Adam Sandler’s.
All of Data’s gadgets in the movie were cool, including this zip line, but the robo-punch would come in handy when you’re alone and in danger.
Spy Kids may not be a classic film, but the gadgets were pretty cool. These kids had watches with laser beams, satellite TV and Internet access.
In the movie, Owen Wilson used these contact lenses to receive advice on a date, but the fact that they have camera and microphone capability is pretty cool.
It wouldn’t be a true gadget list if we didn’t include at least one piece from this movie. It goes without saying that this iconic gadget is on everyone’s list.

I think I’d rather just have Carla Gugino, thx.
And is that Zooey Deschanel with the odd gun?
Joey Zaza from Godfather III (not really)
C’mon, Joey Zaza was played by David Mamet’s favorite actor, Joe Mantegna.
I like Zooey Deschanel!
A fully functional prototype neuralyzer was originally bought by CNBC for use in their morning newscasts. Viewer’s recent memories of market sentiment, company earnings, and previous analyst reports could be instantly erased at the push of a button, with only the dark sinister hedge funds wearing the sunglasses of immunity as they dose the lemmings.
Later, CNBC discarded the concept when they found that several cups of coffee and a few fiction writer’s workshops could accomplish the same effect at a fraction of the cost.
Without any practical need for the device, CNBC put it up for sale on Craigslist, where the always-opportunistic Senor Fly scooped it up at a discount. So when you click on Fly’s BLOG, you will receive a quick flash that erases the contradictory strategy that he had hyped only hours before.
Now if one could erase loses just as easily, someone needs to invent a “LOSS-A-LYZER” to recoup investment losses on a red tape.
Sequel: SEC has been testing a prototype Loss-a-lyzer on MF Global accounts, with mixed reports of 70% to 80% success as of this writing.
