The Oddly Awesome Gadgets You Never Knew You Wanted to Have

Revered British author Douglas Adams (his name might seem familiar if you are a fan of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” and, more recently, the (mis)adventures of Dirk Gently, set to return to BBC America this October) has credited Isaac Newton in one of his Dirk Gently books as one of the most inventive people in history for creating the… cat flap. He claimed that the thing about gravity is not creation but discovery – but it takes the mind of a genius to create something that didn’t exist before. While this attribution is based on anecdotal evidence at best, the idea behind it is still around today. Inventors all over the world are creating gadgets and devices that are sometimes peculiar at best, other times triggering the “shut up and take my money” reflex in those stumbling upon them. Much like these oddly awesome gadgets of 2017 that you didn’t know you wanted.

It also comes with an app, reminding its owners of the areas where the pollution is highest, so they can put the mask on whenever needed and protect themselves.

NakeFit stick-on soles

If you’ve ever been barefoot on the beach, you most likely experienced how unpleasant stepping on the hot sand can be – and how painful it can be to step on rocks, white-hot asphalt, and rocks. You could, of course, wear slippers… but the feeling of the sand that gets under them is comparable to the above. NakeFit is the solution to all these problems, and more.
