    Back To Dick's Gadget Warehouse - and how to submit your video!

    This week's viewer video is from a younger viewer, and we're thrilled we have such a broad age group among fans of the show.

    My dad filmed this for me and I wanted to tell you about one of my favorite gadgets. It is only 55 seconds long. I hope that is long enough. If not let me know and I will record it longer.



    Thank you  

    Jayden Hiner


    This is Jayden's dad. My name is Jeff Hiner. Her birthday is today (4/12/17). She actually turns 12 today. If you use her video please tell her happy birthday. She would absolutely love it. Thanks Jeff


    See your 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.)

    Letter of the week:


    Hi Dick & Chad
    I saw this, & was very disturbed by it, it looks like many of my outlet adapters that I have. I will now be taking a second look, if I see one of theses in a hotel room, or any home I visit. If I do see one of these devices, I will play it safe.
