It’s a promising thought, that are gadget creators are actually super smart brain boxes with frontal lobes so developed that their innovation is almost extra-terrestrial. Some might disagree, a case could be made that some of the worst inventions are gadgets. But the truth is that even the most seemingly pointless and useless gadget has some sort of genius behind it – even if it’s only an enterprising money spinning idea, and not progressing humanity to technological glory.

There’s little point in bashing gadget makers, they are after all only doing their job – tapping into the consciousness of the public and making decisions based on what are wants are. So if you see a pointless gadget, don’t blame the inventor – he’s only giving you what you want, and if you don’t want it then I’m sure the inventor won’t begrudge you not buying it. In fact, the mere annoyance of a person looking at a silly gadget is victory in itself. It’s succeeded in tapping into your subconscious and getting you thinking, even if it’s in a seemingly negative way. In fact, a person annoyed by a gadget is likely to repeat their annoyance to others – perhaps over a beer and a discussion of the supposed ridiculousness of consumer society. In any case, the knowledge of the gadget has spread – so who is to blame for a silly little gadgets success. We are.

If there’s going be an argument for the sillier gadgets, it must be that these pointless gadgets have an essential novelty factor. We all like to think about the classier forms of gadgets, something you’d see in a spy film, but the fact is that most people don’t actually have a need for watches with lasers to slice open padlocks when imprisoned in a super villain’s island lair. We do have a need to entertain ourselves though, so perhaps the legitimacy of a talking pen or a walking clock is increased somewhat in the modern age.

It’s about fun; I think that’s the key to understanding gadgets in their truest sense. Although necessity is the mother of invention, novelty is the mother of production – and the sooner we wake up and realise this, the sooner the local gadget shop will have the sense of appreciation it deserves.
