    Dick's Gadget Warehouse & How to Submit Your Viewer Video.

    Here's another viewer video with a gadget that might end up in Darryl's gadget warehouse. It's something we showed very recently on The Giz Wiz.

    Hi Dick and Chad,


    After seeing episode 1588 I was very excited to purchase the Pawaboo cat toy for my cats. I immediately purchased it from Amazon excited how they might react to it. The video was cut together from a Facebook livestream I made of two of my cats getting acquainted with the new toy.


    The results weren't exactly what I expected.



    Thank you, -Darryl Giors

    We’re looking for more Viewer Videos!

    We’d love to include your video in an upcoming Giz Wiz Show, so here's what we're looking for! Your home shot video – 2 to 3 minutes long, in any of the following categories: 

    I bought a piece of crap: Did you buy something you ended up hating? We won't get you a refund, but we might be able to give a platform to vent your disappointment. Remember, "family friendly" language applies.-

    I invented this! Did you invent something? (Or did a friend or relative invent something.) We can't market it for you, but we can help get the word out. Show us what it is, and how it works. Even if it's a prototype, you can get our (and the audience) reactions. No professional ads please.-

    My Gadget Warehouse: Okay, so you don't have a warehouse. It doesn't matter. Just tell us about your favorite old gadget(s). When and where you bought it, and why you're still hanging on to it.-

    My Favorite Gadget of All Time: Show us what it is, tell us what it does and why you love, or loved it! It can be a new gadget you just bought too.-

    Post them on YouTube and send us the link! We'll do the rest. (Or possibly nothing, but that's unlikely.) Remember, videos should be just 2 to 3 minutes long! Low production value is fine, but we should be able to hear you and see you! If we select and show your video on The Giz Wiz you’ll a tiny amount of fame (hopefully), an autographed MAD magazine and a 35-year-old Alfred E. Neuman picture. So that's one more (so-so) reason to send in your video! IMPORTANT: We'll just shower you with praise for your video if you live outside the US or Canada since we can't afford to send stuff outside of those two places. (Thanks for understanding.)

    Letter of the week:


    Jared emailed us with info a very interesting gadget indeed! Check out the link in his email if you magnetic gadgets! Here's his email:


    Jared: magnet gadget

    I saw this on reddit a little while ago.

    Its a tool, used by welders. Supposed to make welding and holding metals together easier. But I just think they're amazing.

    Its a super strong, little magnet device. But, you can turn the magnet ability on and off with a knob. They make many sizes and shapes to hold items together.

    Looking at getting one of the keychain sized ones. Hope you enjoy.
