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

    We have something a little different in this week's Gadget Warehouse segment. It's a video of an invention from a fan/viewer.  

    From: Adam Paz


    Hi guys, this is my invention.


    Going to try to get it off the ground this season. we will see how it goes. Love the Show. If you put it on Im going to blast it go course haha.



    Im always on your site and have bought a couple cool gadgets from browsing around. If you want I can send you one of these bad boys.


    My website is:


    Thanks a lot.  Adam Paz

    See or hear this show: 



    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 (favorite old, or favorite new): 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.)

    Subject: odd items for your show

    Hello Dick and Chad,


    I enjoy your show and thought I’d pass along a site that I can spend hours looking through. I not affiliated with the site in any way.

    You seem to always be looking for odd items for the show, this site should provide you with plenty of items.


    Keep up the great work! Thank you, Phil Porter
