The Gizmodo gallery of gadgets

September 23, 2009 3:57:05 PM PDT
You don't have to be a tech geek to enjoy looking at gadgets, and for the next several days, there's a place to have some hands-on fun with gizmos and gadgets. The gallery has several dozen items on display. There are some you've never seen before, and others will require you to think back to a time long ago, like the 60s or 70s, when computers weren't everywhere, let alone in your pocket.

"One of the things we wanted to do is bring our Web site to life," Gizmodo's Joanna Stern said.

So inside the NoLita storefront is sits a gallery of sorts, displaying the kinds of things the Web site Gizmodo.com is all about - gadgets and technology.

For example, they have an animal-print taser.

You can also see the evolution of products, like a music player a bit bigger than your iPod Nano. They also have the first ever type of Web cam.

And there's no mess with the automatic pancake maker. It makes perfect pancakes every time.

There is an interactive mirror that puts a new face on looking at yourself, and Jackson Pollack-esque robots. You can check out a 3-D Etch-a-Sketch, with special glasses required.

There are prototypes and relics, and things of the near future - an electric motorcycle, for example.

The Gizmodo gallery is open through Sunday, and it's free. For more information, visit Gizmodo.com.
