Just think: You'd never have to squeeze into a coach class seat again.
9. The Helicopter Hat (Inspector Gadget)
Speaking of avoiding airports, how nice would it be to handle your own air travel -- by simply starting up the helicopter on your hat?
The Inspector Gadget helicopter hat could save us all time, money, and frustration. It could also give us great satisfaction in being able to shout "Go, go, gadget hat!" without being whisked away to an asylum.
10. The Sonic Screwdriver (Doctor Who)
From the TV series to the movie, the sonic screwdriver from Doctor Who has more than proven its value. This normal-looking gizmo is anything but ordinary: It can open any lock, expose any alien, and even repair any faulty electronic equipment.
I don't know about you, but that's one gadget I'd happily put on my tool belt.
(Note to self: Buy a tool belt.)
