What are some of the gadgets that you wish someone would invent and market?

I was shopping for a new TV a couple of weeks ago, and when the sales person asked me what features I was looking for, my answer, while somewhat in jest, did ring true....

I wanted a Billy Mayes filter, that would mute the sound or change the channel every time Bluto tried to sell me some useless crap!

The sales guy, being a nerd and possessing no discernible sense of humor, started discussing voice recognition software and we had soon decided that while viable, the cost of producing a gadget that would react not only to a Garden Weasel commercial, but also to one for the Bad Hair Dye Club For Men should one ever be produced was outside the economy of scale, however if one factors in the Shamwow guy and the Garden Globes, it does start to look more feasible?

It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......

I decided a couple of years ago that a French Army Knife would make a good gag gift for Christmas.....

A corkscrew and a surrender flag only, definitely nothing to wound with, but I could not find a place to get them made in quantities of less than 10,000, so I passed on that potential fortune smile

A Sanpedro watch that moves in Island time, minutes are days and hours are months, shouldn't be that hard to make. right now its half past Dec.

Reality..What a concept!

i want an inexpensive sound modulator so everything i watch & all the songs i download all have the same volume level.

my tivo also needs to just sense when the commercials are over too, so i dont have to pay attention and push the button manually.
