Is this a Gadgeteer Worthy Nail Clipper?

on Friday, August 5th, 2011

You might remember my review of the Klhip nail clippers which have a really cool design, but a price tag that is very prohibitive. Guess what?

Connect this somewhat goofy looking headset to your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, load one of 4 apps and you’ll be well on your way to complete mind control.

Instead of scratching, you can use the USB Itching Removal Instrument from Brando. This device doesn’t use chemicals to stop the itch from insects, it uses electronic and optical spectrum technology.

Wouldn’t It Be Nice? To start with, I’m not a big cell phone fan.  In fact, I have a reproduction of a turn of the century candlestick phone…you  know.. the kind where you hold the earpiece to your ear but speak into a mouthpiece mounted on a slender structure?
