There are many upon many ridiculous gadgets that can be attached to the vehicles we own. This list is compiled of the hideous and horrific, clashing with the downright wrong.
Let’s start of with the ‘WiKi Traffic Car Parking Sensor’, which already sounds absolutely awful. Available to purchase form Play.com for a mere £10.99 this car sensor promises to make parking easy in confined spaces such as your garage or in the open outside. It uses ultra-sonics, and the advert claims that the light sensor goes from green, to amber, to red the nearer you approach a wall. It also claims, “No more bumper scuffs, ever” yet the reliability of this is questionable. There are no reviews of this product on the Internet and the concept of it is completely new to me, as this type of ‘gadget’ as they say, is often most reliable when built in to the car.
It is not conventionally defined as a ‘gadget’ but is nonetheless ridiculous. The retro fuzzy fluffy dice is wondrous in all its splendour, but aside from that it is nowadays viewed as extremely silly and frivolous. It serves no other purpose than to make the driver look like they’ve warped into a tear in space
The LED car signal available from iwoot.com is a cutting edge ridiculous car gadget. Its purpose being that in the (hopefully unlike but still a possible) event that you pull out of a junction unexpectedly, you are able to give your fellow neighbours on the road a friendly and apologetic gesture that is both unique and cringe-worthy. The sign illuminates itself with the words “Sorry”, for a girl it could potentially be quite sweet and invaluable but if a guy had this attached to this car that speaks something a bit too much. You also can choose to either say “Thanks” or give a smiley face. However, if this fits your criteria of a ‘good’ buy and wish to purchase one, its currently on sale for £24.99 on the website mentioned.
Also in the world of ridicule and gadgetry is the ‘Pink Car Kit’ – which is (presumably) aimed exclusively at percentage of the market represented by females. It is relatively naïve to think that women are incapable of purchasing a ‘Note Pad and Pencil’ in the event of emergencies on the road. Or, perhaps, it could be a cue to write down a shopping list. There are many things in this ‘Car Kit’ that are not necessary, such as the ‘Air Freshener’ – surely women can purchase these themselves? Despite this, accessories such as the ice scraper and the gadgets, for example, such as the ‘Emergency Mobile Phone Charger and Adapter’ can show themselves as being useful at times – but are nonetheless things that men may also need and this makes it impossible for men to buy the product due to the social stigma attached to buying things that are the colour ‘pink’. The problem with this product it suggests that women are superficial enough to only trust products that are made up of the colour pink (although I do admit I am wearing a very pink top, pink hand painted nails, and have a pink bedroom at my parents’ home).
quite frankly, it is hilarious. In this pictures you can see that the vehicle has been artistically transformed into a dog.Author's Google+ Page
