What is gadgets..???
Regardless of their specific functions, gadgets are interesting to us, and we've been known to snap up certain trendy gadgets as soon as they hit store shelves. Even older gadgets are still interesting enough to make us stop and stare. For example, have you ever wondered what the pendulum does in a grandfather clock? Or how a tape recorder records on magnetic tape?
Modern electronic gadgets are especially popular -- people love owning and showing off the latest technology. For example, if you fly just about anywhere these days, you're likely to see someone with an expensive pair of noise-cancelling headphones. But keep your eyes peeled and you just might see someone taking their music with them with portable media centers or portable audio studios. Or -- if you can believe it -- a spoon that might even be able to taste your food for you.
Have you ever wanted to learn what makes one microphone different from another? How about what exactly happens when someone gets shot with a stun gun?

We can tell you what it is about massage chairs that rubs people the right way.
