There are some out there who would have you believe that all gadgets are at least partly made especially for the guy who refuses to give up childhood completely. Not at all true. There are silly gadgets for the man-child and there are tools masquerading as gadgets for the guy who wants to prove he’s all grown up. That makes the following list of tech toys gadgets only for the adult male who is simply skeptical of the entire concept that one must mature in order to become a man.
Treasure Seeker’s Metal Detector Shoes
Does the man in your life who loves cool gadgets also fancy himself a treasure-seeking modern day Indiana Jones? Does he like the idea of finding hidden treasures hiding in the sugary sand of beaches, but is certainly no Indiana Dork out there with a great big metal detecting wand? Sounds like a guy who is just a little dubious about the whole idea behind maturation. Exactly the sort of chap who would see no problem slapping on the sandals somewhat inappropriately called Treasure Seeker’s Shoes . Not many gadgets let you live the dream of being a treasure hunter and thumbing your nose at incessant calls to grow up. Put these on, head to the beach or a construction area and explore the world of lost coins, rings, watches and nails. These so-called treasure seeking shoes are in fact sandals, but don’t let that stop you from wearing them, Jack! Attached to these sandals is a built-in metal detector that wraps around the leg courtesy of one of gadgetry’s best friends: Velcro. A cool gadget with the potential to pay for itself on the first day of use as it alerts the wearer to hidden treasures beneath his feet via light and sound.
Futurama’s Zapp Brannigan Metal Ray-Gun
The very mature man who has been living large as an iconoclastic kid at heart will especially love this throwback gadget. Or, for that matter, any guy who digs ” Futurama ” or possesses an affection for retro space guns. The Zapp Brannigan Ray-Gun looks exactly like the kind of toy that would have been popular on schoolyards in the 1960s. Aluminum rather than plastic and, yes, that sound is accompanied by sparks .
Harry Potter Magic Wand TV Remote Control
Even the goofy young adult who was showing up at movie theaters in full Hogwarts regalia back in the early 2000s can be enough of a minimifidian in regards to the pressure to “man up” to be considered actually pretty cool because he plays with gadgets. Even gadgets as endowed with geekability as the Harry Potter Magic Wand TV Remote Control. The cool quotient in owning a gadget based on Harry Potter may seem remote at best, so thank heavens the remote in this case is without question one of the absolute coolest gadgets ever made. The Harry Potter Magic Wand Programmable Remote is the perfect answer for those who simply want a remote that doesn’t require a college degree in order to use it multiple buttons. What could be be more representative of a heartfelt distrust of the requirements of maturation than a remote control for the TV that not only looks like a magic wand, but is utilized like a magic wand? The holder of the wand can perform more than a dozen different remote control commands with little more than the correct flick of a wrist. It takes a certain amount of magic to resist the external pressures of society to conform to a collectively held ideal of ripened sagacity. So this particular gadget can almost be viewed as an iconic gift for the man you know with the strength of will to maintain a sense of incredulous cynicism toward that whole business of having to let of childish things.
